December 14, 2017

The adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) have been steadily increasing over the last few years. Studies reveal that almost 90 percent of office-based physicians worldwide are using EMR-EHR technology to maximize access to patient information and create smoother workflows. EMR-EHR has come a long way from merely eliminating paper-based health records to leveraging machine learning and predictive analytics model, which is intended to detect patient’s health decline, identify patients at risk and also coordinate care.Whether it’s the ebbing Meaningful Use Program or the new Quality Payment Program under MACRA, healthcare providers can leverage true benefits if they have powerful EMR-EHRs in place. This influx of healthcare programs also advances the use of certified EMR-EHRs and health IT as tools to improve the flow of health information among clinicians and ultimately improve the quality of care provided to patients. In addition, vendors are also bringing deep learning and natural language processing capabilities to the EMR-EHR systems for analyzing relevant patient notes and spotlighting certain clinical indicators in the record to alert doctors when sensitive data is missing or needs some clarification.However, business requirements and goals may vary from one healthcare provider to another. With multitude of vendors offering EMR-EHR solutions critical to the business needs of the organizations, it can be quite toilsome for the CIOs to zero in on the right fit for their organizations. To help CIOs in selecting the EMR-EHR solutions software, our distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and the editorial board of CIOReview has narrowed down the selection to the final 10 EMR-EHR Solution Providers.
