Separating EMR Fact From Fiction: Are Technology Platforms Predictors of Clinical Success?

KLAS looks at the impact of technology differences on clinical capability.

    OREM, UT, December 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Despite vendor claims of the importance of technology differentiation, providers report that the technology platforms girding up EMRs are not accurate predictors of capability or clinical success. Providers indicate that vendors, not technology, are their primary concern. As part of the report EMR Technology Perception 2013: Separating Fact from Fiction, KLAS interviewed healthcare organizations across the United States to determine the impact that underlying EMR technology has on what providers are able to accomplish and to determine what risk the technology poses for the future.

KLAS interviewed providers using EMRs from Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, McKesson, MEDITECH and Siemens. The report explored various aspects of EMR technology, including how much the technology influenced the purchasing decision, the impact the technology is having on providers' ability to extend EMR functionality, provider perceptions on the strength of the technology itself, and the future risks providers associated with the technology.

For further details, visit KLAS online at and view EMR Technology Perception 2013: Separating Fact from Fiction. The report is available to healthcare providers and vendors. Providers receive a significant discount off the standard retail price or can receive a complimentary summary report in exchange for a survey about one of their current vendors.
