Cerner said it has suspended political donations to lawmakers who "took part in or incited violence" after  supporters of President Donald Trump attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, Kansas City, Mo.-based KMBC News reports. 

"Effective immediately, Cerner PAC will suspend contributions to any candidate or official who took part in or incited violence last week in Washington, D.C.," a Cerner spokesperson told the network. "Focusing on the health and well-being of the American people transcends partisan politics, and we will continue working with all elected leaders to advance policies that put the patient at the center of their care.”

Since 2019, the Cerner PAC has donated to Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., three times for a total of $15,000, according to the Federal Election Commission, the network reports. The EHR vendor also has donated $5,000 to Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan.
