Large Hospitals to Buy New EHRs

The electronic health record (EHR) market is on the verge of a new buying wave, beyond the IT spending related to meaningful use and the government incentive program. Nearly 50% of large hospitals might buy a more current (EHR) system to replace legacy systems.

The Klas Research report, "Acute Care EMR 2014: The Next Buying Wave," covers interviews with 277 providers from hospitals with at least 200 beds about EHR vendors they are considering and timeframe for purchasing.

"Where the last round of [EHR] purchases was fueled by meaningful use requirements and enticing reimbursements, this next round is being fueled by concerns about outdated technology and health system consolidation."
- Colin Buckley, KLAS Research
