Report: Cerner, Epic Acquired 75% of New EHR Hospital Business Last Year

Cerner and Epic combined acquired slightly more than 75 percent of new electronic health record contracts at large (more than 200 beds) acute-care hospitals last year, according to a report by KLAS.

According to the report, more than 400 large hospitals do not currently have an EHR system, providing an opportunity for the market to keep evolving.

"This mass migration [to EHRs] is clearly not over," said Colin Buckley, one of the report's authors, according to a Healthcare Global report. "The question is which way [hospitals without EHRs] will go and which factors will guide that decision."
