Kalorama answers these questions and brings sharp analysis to recent trends.

The electronic medical records market in the United States is competitive, with over 400 providers; however, increasing mergers and acquisitions in the industry will result in the reduction in the number of competitors. Companies remain competitive by offering high-quality solution packages to private practices and hospitals. However, there is still ample opportunity for other companies and new entrants. There is still not a single system that is complete with true interoperability. The main drawback for smaller companies is the cost to enter the market with a certified product.
