Sun on the move in healthcare
By davidleetodd on Sep 12, 2006
One of the less-noticed benefits of Sun's acquisition of SeeBeyond is that it infused a massive amount of healthcare expertise and goodwill into Sun. You can see a nice example of this today on CNET, in this article by Wayne Owens, the Sun/SeeBeyond SVP of healthcare, and Frank Richards, CIO of Geisinger Health System, a Sun/SeeBeyond customer. Healthcare is now a major vertical for Sun, and we have a real opportunity to increase all Americans' well-being. It's ironic, but there is a real possibility that investing in relatively mundane tasks like electronic recordkeeping and systems integration can do more to increase our level of health than a comparable investment in exotic diagnostic and surgical equipment.
