Hospitals seek more integrated, functional EHRs: Meaningful Use

Posted by: Alok Prasad

Larger hospitals are choosing EHRs that enable them to meet Meaningful Use requirements--and they aren't willing to wait for vendors to catch up, according to a new report from KLAS Research.

The study, across 1,470 American and 151 Canadian hospitals of 200 beds or more, reported that although sales have slowed now that many hospitals have implemented EHR systems, they still "moved at a fairly good clip" as some hospitals entered the market and others opted to change vendors.

EPIC and Cerner moved into first and second place for EHR market share, grabbing more than 80 percent of new hospital contracts. Allscripts, McKesson and Siemens are all vendors in "flux." MEDITECH, GE and Quadramed are losing ground.

"Many providers who might normally be patient with their vendors feel they can't afford to wait," said report author Colin Buckley. "They want an integrated platform with stable Meaningful Use functionality that their physicians won't fight them over. Additionally, Meaningful Use deadlines are forcing some providers back to the market sooner than expected."
