Only three EMR vendors expand market share
KLAS report tallies which vendors are winning the most hospital contracts
OREM, Utah– June 26, 2014 – Cerner, Epic and MEDITECH were the only EMR solutions that grew their market share in 2013. This and other key findings were revealed in the latest KLAS report, entitled “Clinical Market Share 2014: Competition Mounts as Markets Collide”
One of the findings of the report is that Epic and Cerner took the majority of wins in both the large- and small-facility segments.
“EMR vendors that cater to smaller facilities are feeling the pinch and saw a decrease in wins across the board,” said report author Colin Buckley. “It is simply getting increasingly difficult for small-facility vendors to compete with their larger-facility counterparts.”
As part of this study, KLAS interviewed large and small hospitals across the country about their EMR solutions. The products reviewed included EMRs from Allscripts, Cerner, CPSI, Epic, Healthland, McKesson, MEDHOST (HMS), MEDITECH and Siemens.
