Thousands of medical and information technology workers are in Kansas City this week for the annual Cerner Health Conference.
Cerner chairman and chief executive Neal Patterson is scheduled to give the keynote address Tuesday morning. More than 500 other speeches and panels are on the conference agenda.
Cerner will use the conference to present some of its new patient data analytics software and other medical workflow technologies. A variety of physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, public health officials and health information technology experts also will give presentations.
The company, with more than 14,000 employees around the world, has set Nov. 12 for a groundbreaking for its fourth campus in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The planned $4.45 billion Three Trails Campus in south Kansas City could house about 3,000 workers by 2017, the company said.
