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)
athenahealth
Cerner
eClinicalWorks
Eclipsys
e-MDs
Epic
GE Centricity / IDX
Greenway
LSS Data Systems
McKesson / Practice Partner
MED3000
Misys (4 different versions)
NextGen
PracticeOne / e-Medsys
Pulse Systems
Sage
Other

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.
