Research and Markets: U.S. Hospital EHR Market 2009-2016. Exceptionally Dynamic Market Ensures Niche Opportunities for New

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "U.S. Hospital EHR Market 2009-2016" to their offering.

This Frost & Sullivan research service titled U.S. Hospital EHR Market 2009-2016 examines the drivers and restraints of growth and technology, demand and geographical trends in the radiology information systems and picture archiving and communications systems (RIS-PACS). In addition, a market forecast and an analysis of the competitive situation is performed.

It presents an overview of the current status of U.S. hospitals and hospitals' EHR dynamics. It also offers market drivers, restraints, industry challenges, and revenue forecasts.


The blanket shift to digitized medical records that is sweeping across almost all U.S. healthcare provider environments today represents one of the most significant changes the industry has ever witnessed. Hospitals and other providers are scrambling to get electronic health records (EHRs) up and running to avoid financial penalties, following the passing of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) of 2009.

Providers of hospital IT infrastructure are showing great urgency in rolling out solutions, especially due to the rudimentary levels of the current IT infrastructure, and given the short implementation deadlines (roughly 2011 to 2015) set by the government. While most hospitals have selected their vendors already, it does not necessarily mean they will persist with them or that opportunities do not exist for other participants.

While the core hospital EHR market is considered mature and dominated by a handful of well-established, relatively entrenched vendors, it is still a highly dynamic market, says the analyst of this research.

The market is ripe with opportunities now, but timelines are tight. Success in this multi-billion dollar market will depend on a solid knowledge of operating in changing business conditions. As the usage of healthcare IT grows, so will customer sophistication and market competition. It is crucial to continually offer solutions and services that cater to customers' needs, particularly in the near-term, when customer challenges will be most pronounced.
