Overall the Dow took a fall Tuesday with a mix of economic news that was overall not good tidings, but apparently Cerner Corp. didn't get the memo. The company saw record highs for its stocks yesterday, the Kansas City Star reported.
   
This should be more good news in general for the healthcare information technology industry.

Cerner shares held around $90, after reaching a record peak at $90.16 on Nov. 3, but pushed past $94 to near $95 and then dropped to $94.37 by session's end, up $5.37, or 6.03 percent.

Cerner has been having a good few months. Early September say the company's shares rise from the upper $70s after it was awarded a contract by Fujitsu for an ambitious information technology project as part of a UK-based healthcare system.
