It was less than one year ago that Kalorama Information surveyed the market for electronic medical records. Yet much has changed and the changes may reach into every aspect of healthcare. Since our last report, the U.S. Government has decided to incentivize the use of EMRs through extra Medicare payments, companies have merged and new players - including some well-known corporate giants, have entered the field.
What impact have the announcement of ARRA (stimulus) incentives had, if any? What is the realistic opportunity for producers of EMR systems and system components? Who are the key players who will determine the future of EMR? What is the actual usage rate of EMR? Is this market still open for new entrants?, and what are the strategies that are working in the marketplace? These questions and more are addressed in this report.
