As visits to the emergency department climb, the market for ED information systems also is growing. A survey from peer60 found 32 percent of hospitals are planning on switching their information system vendor in their emergency department. Which vendors come out on top?

The EDIS market is predicted to be valued at $635.50 million by 2019, up from $312.68 million in 2014.

According to the survey, hospitals would be most likely to keep their information systems vendor in the ED if the software were easier to use, with 49 percent of respondents indicating this to be the case. Other ways vendors can keep their hospital clients include improving reporting (32 percent), a more robust platform (26 percent), improved customer service (23 percent) and reducing cost (15 percent).

The survey also gauged which vendors lead in market share and mind share.

MEDITECH is No. 1 in the EDIS market share arena, followed by Epic, Cerner, McKesson and MEDHOST.

However, Epic takes the lead in mind share, followed by Cerner, MEDITECH, MEDHOST and T-System.
