Sales of electronic health record systems to physicians are growing at a faster rate than sales of EHR systems to hospitals, according to a report by Kalorama Information, Healthcare IT News reports (Monegain, Healthcare IT News, 4/26).
EHR Sales to Physicians
The report found that sales of EHR systems to physicians increased by about 22% between 2010 and 2011, which is greater than the increase in sales of EHR systems to hospitals.
The report also identified growth in sales of Web-based EHR systems to physicians.
Bruce Carlson, publisher of Kalorama Information, said, "The physician segment will likely drive growth and it's the part of the market where new entrants can realistically stake a claim."
