EMR vs. Healthcare IT Security ($17.9B vs. $32.7 B in 2011)

The move to electronic medical records is creating a large opportunity in healthcare IT. Just one part of the market, electronic medical record systems (EHR), was a $17.9 billion market in 2011. Where as the healthcare IT market was a $32.7 billion market in 2011.
"Many vendors are rolling out new and innovative products and many more are in the works. As more installations occur, so do opportunities for additional revenues." - Bruce Carlson, publisher of Kalorama Information
The top companies in the EMR market, according to the analyst firm Kalorama, were Cerner, McKesson, Siemens, GE Healthcare, Epic and Allscripts. But Kalorama says there are opportunities for other vendors to grow as the market is more fluid than it might appear.
