Small Hospitals Hungry for New Technology

Authored by: | Read Time: 4  minutes

In 2017, 216 acute care hospitals contracted for a new EMR, with 1–200 bed hospitals accounting for the vast majority (80%) of these decisions. These smaller hospitals are hungry for new technology but often resource poor; over half that signed a new contract in 2017 chose a less expensive or less resource-intensive platform—namely, athenahealth, MEDITECH, and the community deployment models from Cerner and Epic. This report investigates this and other shifts that impacted buying energy in 2017.
