EHR Market Share
Great article on market share in the EMR industry. EPIC is listed as having the largest market share, with eClinicalWorks and Allscripts as close seconds. I was surprised to see how much eClinicalWorks has grown in a short time. According to these numbers, it has pulled ahead of traditional EHR powerhouses such as GE Centricity and NextGen. Another surprise was seeing Practice fusion ranking 6th on the list. Impressive growth for this SaaS, Free EHR product. In a way, I see Practice fusion as the future for EHR technology and business model. EHR may move away from the classic client-server model to SaaS, and may in fact become more of a commodity service. A compelling case for achieving meaning full use with Practice Fusion's free EHR, is the fact that physicians will actually be ahead financially with receipt of the stimulus dollars for EHR adoption.
