Overwhelming List of EMR Companies

I’d been looking for some lists of EMR companies that I could use for my list of EMR and EHR vendors. I should expect an enourmous list since I’ve talked about how many EMR companies there are out there, but it is still overwhelming looking at some lists I’ve found. Good thing I’m young and will have time to go through it. I plan on going throuh and demoing many of the different EMR’s and will add them to my EHR and EMR Vendor list as I have time to do an appropriate EMR review.

UPDATE: Here’s a list of EMR vendors with links to get an EMR price quote and/or EMR demo where available.

I found 2 different lists for your viewing pleasure, but I put them on a separate page so they don’t make my front page unreadable. I(and you) shouldn’t look at this list too much because it makes evaluating EMR’s too overwhelming.

  • ComChart EMR: An experience from the exam room

    I was in the exam room talking to a patient, who I am treating for hyperthyroidism. The patient complained of profound fatigue, of several months duration. It was unclear if the problem was being addressed by the PCP. While talking to the patient, I reviewed all his labs which were in ComChart EMR. There was nothing obviously wrong.

    From within the exam room, and while still talking to the patient, I connected to my hospital’s computer and download all his labs which were less than 1 year old. I then had ComChart file the labs into his ComChart chart. I then had ComChart EMR create a chart of all his CBCs by clicking the “Chart… CBC” button in the labs. It was obvious that his hematocrit had dropped precipitously sometime between January and March.

    The PC computer I was using had Skype installed (a free program which allows you to make free telephone calls from your computer.) I also have a headset attached to this computer, which I use with Dragon NaturalSpeech Medical. While still in the exam room, and from within ComChart EMR, I clicked the “PCP” button in the patient’s Progress Note and a dialog box popped up and asked “Do you want to go to the Dr. XXX’s Addresses file?” I selected “yes.” I then clicked on the label “private,” which is in front of the physician’s “private” phone number. ComChart opened Skype and connected the call. I spoke with the PCP and I arranged for the patient to see the PCP the following day.

    I then click the “orders” button and selected my “anemia work-up” panel. This created a lab order slip which included all the necessary blood tests. I choose the option “Send copy of results to… PCP” and then clicked the button “Fax order slip” to lab.

    Finally, in front of the patient, I dictated a Progress Note, using Dragon NaturalSpeech 8 Medical. The resultant Progress Note included the chart of the patient’s CBCs. I then selected the PCP as the recipient, and clicked the button “Create queued fax.” In my office, I have one computer which continually sends out the “queued faxes” as soon as they are created. Thus, the PCP had received a copy of the Progress Note and the lab had received the lab order slip even before the patient left my exam room. The entire process occurred within a few minutes.

    Needless to say, that patient was impressed that my office was able to use technology in order to efficiently advance their healthcare. And, the fact that it all happened in front of the patient, seem to reassure the patient and de-mistify the healthcare delivery process.

    True story. It occurred on 7/7/06. Score one for ComChart EMR.

  • Quantity vs. Quality

    There is another source you might consider to post to your site as it relates to presenting a Who’s Who list of EMR/EHR vendors competing in this space.

    I’ve been tracking such players for quite some time now and while having a LARGE list of the rank `n file I suspect most visitors on your site would want to distinguish the value players from the wannabee’s?

    If you request, I will provide you with a pointer or two. If you use ACT! the info would be even more useful to you and your readers.


  • Neil,
    I have thought about creating a list of some of the best EMR’s. This is obviously not the point of this list of EMR companies. However, it is a hard thing to decide which ones are the best and should be on a list too. That’s the way to piss off a bunch of EMR companies. I would suggest that most of this list of EMR companies has someone using their product and have it working.

    We’ll see how much time I have in the future to work on a list of that sort.

  • I am looking for a Sales Executive in Chicago IL. I am a search consultant looking to network in the Healthcare Technology space. If you are in sales and in HIT. We need to connect.

    Josh Vice

  • Dr Zwerling’s comment above made me think of my old school approach. (I’m am old school doc):
    I look at the patient. They complain of being tired and look pale. I pull down their eyelids to make my “guess the crit” estimation of anemia, ask my assistant to get their doc on the phone, and a few minutwes later I tell him to fit her in ASAP. No computer. I’m at this site while looking around trying to justify the huge expenbditure I’m about to make to go electronic. oh, well.

  • Robert Rosen,
    Your first problem is that you think that you must make a huge expenditure in order to go electronic. You definitely do not. Sure, it does cost something. However, there are a number of EMRs that are quite cheap. Of course, if you’re an old doc, then maybe it’s not worth your time to learn the new technology. I don’t see anything wrong with that.

    I just wanted to also mention that you don’t have to go as technical as Dr Zwerling did. His is a great scenario of using technology, but just because you use an EMR to store your records doesn’t mean that you can’t just call a doc on the phone as opposed to skype.

    This site isn’t about convincing people to do EMR or not. It’s all about helping people understand EMR so they can make the best decision for their practice. Each practice is unique and so I hope to be able to provide information that will help improve successful EMR implementations and avoid the failures that people are experience trying to implement an EMR.

  • The “Logician” product you have listed has not been called by that name for about 5-6 years. GE changed the name to “Centricity EMR” shortly after they acquired MedicaLogic.

  • EMRdoc,
    That’s not surprising. This list is really old and was posted a long time ago. The key point about this list is just showing that there are a LOT of EMR companies out there.

    I’m currently working on listing the EMR companies in my EMR and EHR matrix of companies. So, hopefully over time with the communities help that list will be more complete than this static list above.

  • I’ve been in the medical billing field for almost two years and the company I work for just implemented and went live on the Medievolve system on February 16th. As of March 1st, we started receiving payments from major carriers such as United Healthcare and Medicare. I worked at the billing office and the program was mainly used in the individual physician offices and I guess because No one really knew what to expect, there has been a lot of complaints about the program. I know EHR is the here and now and I just pray that the bumps we are experiencing now will smooth themselves out very soon. Thank you for giving this information. Do you know of any systems that are comatable with home medical billers?

  • Hi Stephanie,
    Sounds like you’re experiencing a common EHR implementation experience. Unfortunately, far too many implementations don’t manage expectations very well.

    Assuming you have decent leadership, things should smooth themselves out over time and you’ll nearly forget the initial challenge of implementing.

    As far as home medical billers, I’d say that every EMR could be done that way. Those that are web based are easier to implement home medical billing. However, I can’t think of any EHR that couldn’t be done from home using some sort of remote desktop or Citrix (which is essentially remote desktop on steroids) environment. I’d say this is one of the benefits of EHR.

  • Question: If and when we get a national EMR system that allows patient records to be passed from one facility to another, will all of these EMR products listed be compatible with the national system? Will there be a need for interfacing between some or all private systems and the national EMR “highway?”


  • Ken,
    Absolutely not. At least not in the foreseeable future.

    I think you’re mixing terms a little bit also. Compatible and interfacing with the “national EMR highway” are essentially the same thing. If an EMR is compatible with it, then it will be able to interface with it. There might be various types of interfaces. Some more complete. Some real time. Some batch posted. etc etc etc. However, even with those options I’m quite sure we can be certain that many of the above EMR companies won’t be able to interface with the national system.

    What will happen with those companies that don’t will be interesting to see. However, that’s still a LONG ways before it will matter.

  • I am starting to do a search of EMR companies in the Chicagoland area. I have had an interest in finding a EMR Sales position for quite some time now, and have developed fantastic sales skills. I was hoping someone can help by directing me the right way in search for a great position. Thanks.

  • I know the VA is using a system that is both open source and doctor developed. Are any of the vendors building on that structure?

  • Dave,
    There are a number of companies that are trying to use Vista (the VA EMR system) outside of the VA. They seem to be getting some traction. Although, I personally don’t know anyone that’s using this system in ambulatory care. I only have seen it implemented in a hospital setting.

    I’d be interested to know of someone using it in ambulatory care if such an install exists.

  • Dear Sir,
    Please include VersaSuite on your list of EMR/EHR companies. VersaSuite has been in the medical software business for over 10 years. Here’s a brief summary:

    VersaSuite™ is the flagship product of Universal Software Solutions, Inc. (USSI), a rapidly growing software company located in Austin, Texas, USA.

    Thank you,

  • Rodney,
    I’ve actually moved my list of EMR companies to my EMR and EHR wiki. You can find the matrix of EHR and EMR companies: http://emrandhipaa.com/wiki/EMR_and_EHR_Matrix Since it’s a wiki you are welcome to create a login and add VersaSuite’s information to it directly.

    As a side note, I met with the President of VersaSuite, Darius, when I was in Austin last. We had a nice breakfast and I was suppose to follow up about possibly advertising on the site. I’ll shoot you an email to inquire more.

  • I am into the medical transcription business and really found this EMR detailed list quite helpful for me.

  • Looking for suggestions for a one chiropractor and support staff. If it had a similar format to windows it would be nice but not a necessity.

  • Jenn,
    LOTS of options out there (as you can see from this list). You might use a service like http://www.emrconsultant.com to help you narrow your search. They’re free to use and pretty comprehensive.

    Full Disclosure: They are an advertiser on this site, but I still love what they do.

  • Mike,
    Considering the list is over 4 years old, that’s not bad;-) You can imagine how many more EMR vendors have come out in the last 4 years.
