U.S. Market for Electronic Medical Records

Published: December 2012
No. of Pages: 88

In 2011, the U.S. market for ambulatory electronic medical records was valued at over $1.2 billion.

There has been a focus on developing ambulatory electronic medical records (EMRs) to ensure a larger and more encompassing healthcare network for patient care across the United States. As physicians are at the forefront of healthcare, the U.S. federal government has stepped in to propel ambulatory EMR adoption. Meaningful Use incentives have spurred the rapid adoption of EMR systems in the U.S. healthcare network, with many healthcare providers focusing on the installation and implementation of EMR systems in order to qualify for government incentives. This surging demand for EMR systems has driven new growth and will establish a steady stream of future revenue for EMR vendors. Thus, strong market growth will be realized as the majority of healthcare providers implement an EMR system over the forecast period.
