Cerner Has Largest Global EMR Market Share According to KLAS Report

In a new KLAS report, "Global EMR Market Share," Cerner surged from fourth to first place overall in EMR market share. The increase comes following a strong year of sales. Nearly 40% of the hospitals who selected Cerner or opted to stay with the company post-NPfIT bids were providers in the competitive UK market.

In 2014, the UK was the most competitive country outside the U.S. for acute care EMR contracts with 21 providers (78 hospitals) choosing amongst seven different vendors. Cerner contracted with 43% of these providers compared with InterSystems at 19% followed by CSC Lorenzo with 14% of the market share. Other global vendors Epic, MEDITECH and Allscripts saw their shares remain flat.

"The UK was the most competitive country in 2014 in terms of acute care EMR decisions," said Jeremy Goff, Research Director for KLAS and report author. "Providers looked to Cerner and InterSystems, who have more well-established customer bases, and to other lower-cost regional solutions like CSC Lorenzo and IMS MAXIMS."
