Over the past few months we’ve been hearing about physicians resisting change. More specifically, they are not ready to purchase and implement an electronic health record (EHR) system.
After speaking with several of physicians as well as EHR vendors, we’ve learned that right now is a learning period for physicians. They simply are not ready to purchase an EHR until everything is clarified by the government.
However, numbers seem to state otherwise.
Several EHR vendors have NOT been affected by the Economic Stimulus and in fact, their companies have seen a significant increase in sales.
I guess it really depends on the EHR vendor that you speak with. As a physician ‘learning’ about the EHR Industry- make sure to read press releases concerning the growth of the EHR companies.
