Cerner employees told to work from home through end of 2020

Kansas City, Mo.-based Cerner will not reopen its company offices until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Kansas City Business Journal.  

Cerner told its employees July 16 that it will have them continue working remotely through the end of the year. The EHR vendor shifted employees to remote operations beginning March 16 in an effort to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Cerner has 13,377 local, full-time equivalent employees across its Kansas City-based headquarters as well as campuses in Kansas City, Kan., and two in southeast Kansas City, Mo., according to the report.

Last month, Cap Times reported that Epic Systems, Cerner's largest EHR competitor, is planning to bring its more than 9,000 employees back to its Verona, Wis.-based campus by the end of August.
