Experts raise concerns about EHR vendors' long-term viability

iHealthBeat, February 2, 2010

Some industry experts said the federal government is not doing enough to ensure that federal stimulus funding is not wasted on electronic health record systems from vendors that might later go out of business. Several industry consultants said that doctors have little experience purchasing EHRs and do not know what questions to ask or what protections to include in their contracts. In addition, industry analysts are predicting a spike in consolidation in the healthcare IT market, creating uncertainty that certain products or vendors will remain in the marketplace, iHealthBeat reports.
