"EMRs are poised to improve patient care, reduce healthcare expenses and
fundamentally change the way in which medicine is practiced," said Technical
Insights Senior Research Analyst Darshana De. "Government incentives are
expected to increase the effective implementation of health IT adoption; the
most significant drivers include
the United States
' American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and
Australia
's
$450 million
e-health effort."
Additionally, emerging markets such as
Malaysia
,
Thailand
,
Russia
and
China
are expected to rapidly adopt EMRs. The future of these markets will depend on
the support given by their governments, as well as the regulatory standards
adopted.
Cloud-computing solutions in the EMR space show a great deal of promise to
reduce costs and increase efficiency. However, they are also likely to prove
much more expensive than standard, client-server EMR solutions due to
recurring access costs.
Nearly 5,800 U.S. hospitals are using EMRs, with adoption rates beginning to
accelerate due to ARRA incentives and penalties. However, very thin (or even
negative) margins are making it a challenge for hospitals to set aside funds for
EMR-related projects.
In ambulatory settings, most physicians have implemented EMRs with
sophisticated functionality and shared clinical data across multiple offices. Many
hospitals in the
United Kingdom
are starting EMR implementation.
"A key challenge going forward is the expense to implement and support EMR
systems," said Technical Insights Research Analyst Arjunvasan Ambigapathy. "A
major task for healthcare practices that still have not begun the
