EMR and EHR Implementation

I ran accross an interesting study which says that EHR won’t penetrate into the small office segment(which is the largest segment) until the year 2024 which is 10 years after when policy makers have asked it to be implemented. The study used actual data to make this prediction which is a step in the right direction. This is good and bad news for EMR vendors that now have nearly 20 years of business ahead of them but that means revenues will be strung out over 20 years. No dotcom boom at that rate.
