List of EHR Companies for Survey

I recently got a survey from someone evaluating EHR implementations and the motivations around an EHR implementation. I’m suppose to get the results of the EHR survey. If there’s something interesting, I’ll post it on here for all to see and enjoy.

One thing that interested me was that the survey had one question that asked which EMR or EHR an organization implemented. They offered the following choices:
Unknown [honestly how could someone not know?]
Allscripts (3 different versions)
GE Centricity / IDX
LSS Data Systems
McKesson / Practice Partner
Misys (4 different versions)
PracticeOne / e-Medsys
Pulse Systems

I thought it was interesting to see the EHR they decided to list on the survey. Does this represent the majority of the EHR implemented? Anyone have a study that shows possible market share for various EHR companies? I’m thinking many on this list shouldn’t be there and that others probably should be listed that aren’t. Am I way off?

One thing is certain, I need to add all of the above EHR companies to my EMR and EHR company matrix.

  • I never got the results. I’ll have to see if I can get them. However, they left off so many EMR companies I’m not sure I care as much about the results.

    I’m shopping for an ideal EMR product and have gone through a majority of the vendors listed above. Only one was bold enough to fill up HRSA’s EMR selection guidelines.

    We are currently using this bold vendor for our PM and were having major issues already.

  • Emmanuel,
    No doubt selecting an EMR is a real challenge with over 300 EMR vendors out there. The other sad part is those EMR companies that have time to fill up huge guidelines/surveys/etc are often the ones that just are good at marketing and not as good at actually creating usable software.
