New Report on The Market for Electronic Medical Record Systems by Kalorama Information
29 Dec 2011 • by Natalie Aster
For several years Kalorama Information has been studying the trend of electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR). What was already a fast-growing market dramatically changed in 2009 when as part of the ARRA stimulus law, the US Government provided incentives for physicians and hospitals to use systems. Those incentives have now been clarified and in 2011, the first checks have been issued.
According to the report “EMR 2011: The Market for Electronic Medical Record Systems” by Kalorama Information, the growth rate of 10% in 2009 and 13.6% in 2010 was a little slower than anticipated, the result of some hesitation on the part of physicians confused about meaningful use guidelines. But despite the slower rate of growth, considerable growth did occur. Physician adoption has improved and incentive checks have been issued. Survey results show physician usage of EMR near 50%. As new systems are sold, companies will still earn revenues from existing clients in servicing and consulting. It is expected over 18-20% market growth for the next two years.
