Oracle expands in the field of healthcare

Oracle has just expanded into the field of healthcare. The software maker bought electronic medical records company Cerner for $28.3 billion. This is also the largest acquisition of this business ever. Thanks to data from Cerner, Oracle can improve AI cloud services, saving a lot of costs. Cerner stock rose about 1%, while Oracle stock fell about 4%. The COVID-19 pandemic makes healthcare attractive to investors. Healthcare will be a difficult mountain to conquer for technology companies because it has not created a great momentum in the industry.
