For the 80th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re talking about Cerner, Theranos, Ransomware, COVID…Oh My! That’s right, this episode is a ripped from the headlines episode.

What’s probably the biggest is Oracle’s acquisition of Cerner, but we also dive into what the Theranos verdict for Elizabeth Holmes means for health IT and more importantly female healthcare entrepreneurs.
