Orem, Utah-based KLAS has compiled the perceptions and opinions of healthcare providers regarding EMR systems and published its findings in its 2008 Ambulatory EMR Perception report. With 40 percent of study participants planning to make an ambulatory EMR purchase in the next two years, including providers who currently have an EMR solution, KLAS investigated which vendors were in the running. According to KLAS, providers shared their thoughts into their near-term plans for EMR purchasing, key criteria for selecting an EMR and which vendors they would consider if making that purchasing decision today.

Additionally, KLAS drilled down to uncover what influence CCHIT certification and the Stark Law changes had on physician practices’ purchasing decisions. Interestingly, 24 percent of respondents from small practices, meaning one to five physicians, reported that CCHIT certification was essential in their selection process.

Vendors included in this report were Allscripts, athenahealth, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, Eclipsys, e-MDs, Epic, GE Centricity, Greenway, McKesson, Misys, Next Gen, and Sage.
