Earlier this month Oracle closed its $28.3B acquisition of Cerner and shortly after Oracle founder and CTO, Larry Ellison, outlined Oracle’s vision for Healthcare IT post-acquisition. The key elements of this vision included:

– Developing a solution for a national EHR database.

– Leveraging this solution, and similar smaller-scale connected EHR initiatives, to provide life science, pharma and other users with a rich environment for research, clinical trials and drug development.
