The Gap Between EMR Vendor Market Share Widens

KLAS examines changes in clinical vendor market share in large hospitals.

    OREM, UT, August 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cerner and Epic combined captured more than three-fourths of new large-hospital EMR contracts, while the other vendors struggled to keep pace. This, according to the latest KLAS report, Clinical Market Share 2013: More than Meaningful Use.

The report focuses on which vendors are capturing the most market share in the large-hospital space and which ones are losing. Additionally, the report focuses on the reasons behind the wins and losses and looks at such areas as usability and provider satisfaction.

"The HITECH Act that started this mass migration is clearly not over. There are over 400 large hospitals that still do not utilize a currently marketed EMR and thus still face a decision," said report author Colin Buckley. "The question is which way they will go and which factors will guide that decision."

As part of the study, KLAS examined the most widely used EMRs purchased by acute care hospitals with over 200 beds, including systems from Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, McKesson, MEDITECH and Siemens.
