Cerner raises concerns about MU deal with Loftin
COLUMBIA (AP) — A Kansas City-based company that helps operate a research institute at University of Missouri's flagship campus in Columbia is raising concerns about a transition agreement with the former chancellor.
Loftin's transition agreement calls, in part, for him to serve as director of university research at the Tiger Institute for Health Innovation. Health information technology company Cerner Corp. operates the institute with the university.
The Columbia Missourian reports Cerner wants references to Cerner and the Tiger Institute removed from Loftin's agreement until the institute's governing body reviews the deal.
A university spokesman didn't immediately respond to a call seeking comment Tuesday.
