athenahealth likely to lose business from largest client, says Jefferies

Jefferies analyst Sean Dodge learned from two senior leaders at Ascension, athenahealth's (ATHN) largest client, that the faith-based healthcare organization has initiated a significant information technology standardization as part of its population health strategy. A formal decision is still several months away, but the displacement of athenaClinicals was characterized by a senior Ascension leader as "likely," Dodge tells investors in a research note titled "Ascension Standardizing on CERN; Possibly Displacing Some or All of ATHN." Ascension may also decide to replace athenaCollector, the analyst adds. The health system currently employs 7,000 ambulatory doctors, with 97% of those currently using athenaCollector and 70% using athenaClinicals, Dodge points out. He estimates the total relationship to be worth $40M-$50M annually to athenahealth, with the clinicals portion being $8M-$13M of that. The analyst cut his price target for athenahealth shares to $110 from $120 and keeps a Hold rating on the name. He believes the likely loss of Ascension on the clinicals side could mean an even bigger deceleration in athenahealth's revenue growth in 2018 than he's modeling. Dodge also raised his price target on Buy-rated Cerner to $79 from $74. The addition of the 77 Ascension hospitals elevates his confidence in the company's ability to sustain high-single/low-double digit revenue growth.

Piper says athenahealth increased operating leverage should raise multiple
After athenahealth announced that it has identified approximately $100M in cost-savings opportunities, Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland said he believes the company's increased operating leverage should drive multiple expansion. The news that the company will separate its CEO and Chairman roles is both a sign of maturing but also a rebuke of recent performance, added Wieland, who keeps an Overweight rating and $171 price target on athenahealth shares.

Cerner prime role on VA contract could add $1B to revenue, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jamie Stockton said that after catching up with Cerner management at the firm's conference he came away with the impression that the company "feels very good" about being named prime contractor by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which they noted would like to "move fast." No dollar amount has been disclosed for a VA deal, but he thinks having a prime role could add as much as $1B to Cerner's revenue in 2019 or 2020, Stockton tells investors. He keeps an Outperform rating on Cerner shares.
