Epic, Cerner Hospitals Sticking With EMR Vendor for Interactive Patient Systems

Of the Epic and Cerner organizations considering acquiring an interactive patient system, more than 80 percent will choose their respective vendor's product over a best-of-breed solution, according to a report from KLAS Research.

However, many of the respondents said the Epic or Cerner IPS was "less robust" than other solutions, according to the report.

"For at least some of the providers contemplating a purchasing decision, integration is clearly outweighing functionality," said report author Adam Cherrington in a news release. "If providers have an IPS product then they are staying put, but if they are in the market and their EMR vendor has an IPS product, then the best-of-breed products often don't even get considered."
