12 EHR Vendors That Stand Out

With the federal incentive program for electronic health records well underway, hundreds of companies are selling EHRs. InformationWeek Healthcare has cut through the noise and identified a dozen vendors worth watching.

Products: For small physician practices: NaviNet EMR.

Why You Should Watch: NaviNet is new to the EHR game, having introduced its first combined EHR and practice management system just a year ago. But the company, formerly known as NaviMedix, is well-known among physician practices, hospitals, payers, and other healthcare entities for its extensive healthcare communications network that provides transaction services to more than 800,000 users. That network helps form the basis for care coordination services and provides a platform for a patient portal, both of which will be integral to anyone looking to create an accountable care organization.

A December 2010 acquisition of e-prescribing and mobile clinical messaging vendor Prematics added a mobile dimension and an e-prescribing piece, since renamed NaviNet Prescribe, and provides an integration challenge for NaviNet.

re: 12 EHR Vendors That Stand Out
Nice list, and great descriptions of each EHR reviewed. I was surprised to not see MediTouch by HealthFusion on the list. I have personally been working with it for almost a year now and am very impressed with it. It appears to have most if not all of the perks of the others reviewed, plus their customer service is something to be marveled.

re: 12 EHR Vendors That Stand Out
Having worked with several of the major players (and for one) in the EHR industry, I can say they are all behind the times. Very slow to adopt new technology, or even supporting currently supported versions of MS software (OSes, IIS, SQL Server, etc). Not too mention they are out sourcing A LOT of potentially high paying jobs to other countries where labor is cheaper - at the same time accepting massive amounts of tax payer dollars from physicians and offices that recieve the money as an incentive for getting an EHR. These companies really have the opportunity to make greater strides in improving the way physicians and ancillary staff interact with patients and technology, but they make it painful to adopt.

re: 12 EHR Vendors That Stand Out
Really like the list and the descriptions of the target for each. The front end looks so different, how easy is it going to be to integrate and aggregate data on the backend when needed? Isn't that the goal further down the road? Not more silos of info, but data that makes information more easily interpreted and usable?
