Software multinational SAP’s recent announcement that it would cease supporting Oracle Cerner’s i.s.h.med EHR solution by 2030 requires a swift and decisive response from Oracle Cerner.

They will need to know whether Oracle Cerner will invest further in a solution which has served it well for several years, and which continues to secure big hospital contracts in Europe. Or they will need to know if Oracle Cerner plans to let i.s.h.med go quietly.
