Note: We’re sorry to share that Anne Zieger (@annezieger) who was suppose to host this week’s chat had some health issues and so we had to change the topic and host. Anne is doing ok and we’ll be sure to have her back as host of a future chat.
We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 5/19 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by John Lynn (@hospitalEHR) on the topic of “The EHR Market.”
The EHR market has gotten very mature. Thanks to $36 billion in stimulus money fromt he government, most organizations have adopted an EHR. Depending on who you check for EHR market penetration numbers, in the hospital world EHR adoption looks to be well over 90%. The ambulatory world is further behind, but it’s well over 50% adoption now.
Given the maturity of the EHR market, I thought it would be fun to hold an #HITsm chat to discuss the future of the EHR market. Let’s talk about where it’s at today, where it’s going in the future, and what else we can expect from EHR vendors that will now be working in a largely saturated market. What does this mean for the industry and for you as a customer of these EHR vendors?
Join us on Friday May 19th at 12:00pm ET as we discuss the following questions on #HITsm:
T1: How would you describe the state of the EHR market today? (specify ambulatory and/or hospital) #HITsm
T2: In what ways will the EHR market evolve over the next 5, 10, 20 years? #HITsm
T3: How much EHR switching do you expect to see in the future? What will be the impact to vendors and customers? #HITsm
T4: Where will we see EHR vendors expand as the market for EHR sales dries up? #HITsm
T5: What must have products will form alongside the EHR or even replace the EHR? #HITsm
Bonus: Which EHR vendors will be gone (or basically gone) in 10 years? #HITsm
