Bush also discussed the recent acquisition of Epocrates (EPOC), a provider of medical and drug information with over one million users that include over 330,000 doctors. Bush said that Epocrates does over 200 million drug lookups and is the most trusted name in online medical information.
When asked how much money could be saved by moving to online records and services, Bush said our health-care system could easily save 25% to 30% just by not handling claims multiple times and making multiple requests for information. He said our health-care system today doesn't connect information with patients, something it desperately needs to do.
Cramer said that while Athenahealth is expensive, it's also best of breed and will continue heading higher.
No Huddle Offense
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer once again proved to viewers why speculation should be a part of their portfolios. He said even he's been amazed at how single-digit stocks like Sprint, Clearwire and Nokia (NOK) have been able to deliver triple-digit returns for those to braved the lows in 2012.As SuperValu proved today, there's a price at which even the most hated and troubled of companies becomes attractive, but other those investors willing to speculate are able to cash in on these spectacular returns.
