A report from vendor research firm KLAS Enterprises examines market share among six electronic health records companies serving the large hospital market. According to KLAS, Cerner and Epic capture more than 75 percent of large hospital contracts while the others-Allscripts, McKesson, Meditech and Siemens-pull in most of the rest. With 443 hospitals of more than 200 beds not using a currently marketed EHR, the report looks at factors that will guide their vendor decision processes. Epic has a 2-1 lead over Cerner in new contracts, compared with a 5-1 lead in 2010, according to the report.
