17 Leading EHR Vendors
Electronic Health Records can help healthcare providers in the delivery and management of care to patients, including those with chronic conditions. The systems can also bolster decision making by providing clinicians with more comprehensive patient data, as well as help eliminate medical errors and reduce costs associated with unnecessary or redundant tests. Health care providers can access real-time clinical information, such as immediate access to test results, which allows them to initiate appropriate treatment or follow-up, and to anticipate and mitigate potential problems, more easily and much earlier that without access to EHR data. This potential to improve patient care has contributed to more than half of physicians utilizing EHR systems according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics preliminary 2010 estimates. The cost of implementing these systems is significant, however; a CDW Healthcare survey pegged it upwards of $100,000 per physicians. These costs make vendor selection a crucial step in EHR adoption. In this directory, you'll find 17 of the leading vendors along with information about the products they provide and the value to doctors.
