In 2010 we highlighted an electronic health records (EHR) analysis conducted by Software Advice. The company has recently updated their EHR market share statistics.
According to the report, 115,918 eligible professionals (EPs)—physicians and other health professionals—have successfully qualified for Stage 1 Meaningful Use EHR incentives according to the criteria of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Also, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-HIT) lists 623 software vendors that provide solutions to EPs that can be eligible for incentives under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. However, the report shows only 387 of those vendors were found in the CMS data.
