New report shows EHR purchasing trends

Many are replacing their EHR systems, one report said.

Software Advice recently posted the results of its 2015 EHR Software BuyerView analysis, which is based on the interactions of physicians purchasing EHR software. Among several key findings, the source suggests that a vast majority of software buyers do their billing in-house, and as such are looking for billing resources in the software that they invest in. Other important functions associated with EHRs include patient tracking, compliance and customized templates.

One of the main trends noticed by the company is a high amount of buyers replacing their existing EHR systems this year. Within the first three months of 2015, 20 percent more buyers replaced their EHR software than did in the previous year. As the source notes, this is a statistic with mixed implications.

On the one hand, 60 percent of buyers are already using an EHR system this year, also higher than last year's numbers. At the same time, this is reportedly the first year since 2009 where more buyers were observed replacing their EHRs than obtaining new ones. Among the reasons given for purchasing an EHR, the greatest was that the existing system is "too cumbersome," according to almost 25 percent of buyers. 

The report ultimately connects the trend to the new demands of ICD-10 conversion and highlights the need for efficient functions in EHR software.

"Buyers want features that allow them to make the most of patient data and practice population health management," it reads. "Patient tracking and robust reporting tools make an EHR more than just a means for digitizing paper records. Thanks to the upcoming ICD-10 transition, practices are also paying special attention to billing applications that will help office staff collect the proper reimbursements."

Comprehensive planning through experienced healthcare consulting firms will give providers the guidance they need to run EHR software and other new health IT tools efficiently.
