A survey by Black Book Rankings, a division of the market research firm Brown-Wilson Group, ranks the top EMR vendors for 2011 based on key performance indicators including meaningful use.
The rankings include the top 20 vendors in 10 categories including acute care/hospital, emergency and physician groups, which are broken down by size.
The rankings are a result of a four month poll, conducted by Black Book, that surveyed more than 30,000 healthcare records professionals, physician practice administrators and hospital leaders in the information technology arenas.
Black Book Rankings employs 18 key performance indicators, including ARRA stimulus support, implementation, cost and meaningful use.
"Each physician practice and hospital has unique needs to consider when selecting the right electronic medical record software company," said Kevin Parker, MD, Black Book's EMR research director. "There's a big field of competitors and a short window of opportunity to maximize stimulus funding. Objective, independent data for EMR decision makers has been difficult to find. Black Book's 2011 survey results are a statement of proficiency that these top EMR vendors have the documented user satisfaction outcomes to demonstrate exceptional implementations, compliance and service levels."
