It’s amazing how this has shifted. When I first started blogging about EMR, it was all about the lengthy note to justify the higher billing. We’re still dealing with the impact of that choice. I’m still not convinced that everyone believes a brief EHR note is the best. They all want to read brief EHR notes, but when they’re billing I don’t think they all agree. We need a change from the payers to solve this problem.

I have no idea how someone comes up with a percentage of EHR replacement. Although, you can be sure that there will be a bunch of EHR switching in the years to come. What is interesting is that ERP systems have been going through this process for a long time. I wonder what we could learn from the ERP switching process that will apply to EHR.

I always find the EHR market number interesting. $23 billion in EHR spending. Where are we at in EHR stimulus spending? As I recall we’re somewhere around
$13 billion $22.9 billion.
