Three vendors have set themselves apart from the EMR pack as many providers report that they are either replacing their EMRs – or worse, feel stuck with their current EMRs.

Epic, athenahealth and Greenway Medical have pulled away in the 11–75 physician practice space according to the latest KLAS report, Ambulatory EMR (11–75 Physicians): Can Any Vendor Set a High Standard?

“Clinicians and IT often have different sets of priorities,” said report author Erik Bermudez. “Vendors must balance the needs of both groups in order to be successful, and athenahealth, Epic and Greenway have done the best job of that.”  

The report focuses on the key areas of usability, workflow and integration. As part of the report, KLAS interviewed providers using products from Allscripts, athenahealth, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, e-MDs, Epic, GE, Greenway Medical, McKesson, MEDITECH, NextGen and SRSsoft.
