As President of Cerner Global, Emil is responsible for all Cerner markets outside of the United States.
Emil has served in a variety of global roles over his career since joining Cerner in 1998, spanning Belgium, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. He was one of the first members of Cerner’s European team, located in Brussels, in 2000 and was an early contributor to many of the clients and business units that are the foundation of our current European business units.
Emil worked on teams in the U.K. before and during the commercial efforts of NHS National Programme for IT (NPfIT), started Cerner Iberia in 2004 (including signing and converting Marina Salud, Cerner’s first HIMSS level 7 client in Europe).
After moving to the U.S. in 2009, Emil assumed leadership of the Critical Care and Emergency Department Strategic Business Unit (SBU) and subsequently promoted to vice president, Employer and Provider Services. In that role he led the Kansas City Provider Network Initiative which was an early concept of Population Health Management, articulating a value-based alignment between providers, consumers and payers of health and care services.
At the end of 2012, Emil returned to Europe as vice president and managing director of Cerner Ltd. (U.K.) and held that position until 2015. Upon Cerner’s acquisition of Siemens Health Services in 2015, Emil was named vice president and managing director of Cerner Europe and Latin America. This became Cerner’s largest international group in terms of clients, annual revenues, associates and offices.
In February of 2017, Emil was named President, Cerner Global with a focus on sustained growth in all international markets and improved satisfaction amongst Cerner’s international clients. The Global group contains some of Cerner’s more contemporary growth examples in both new and existing markets and includes support of some of the world’s more progressive health and social care systems. He continues in this role leading both market-based and fully global support teams.
