Competition is getting stiffer in the acute care hospital electronic health records market, according to vendor research firm KLAS enterprises.

In a 2014 report, KLAS found that of providers that had selected or leaned toward a specific vendor, Epic had 36 percent market share with Cerner in second place with 14 percent. In the new 2015 report, Cerner stands at 14 percent while Epic falls to 25 percent.

Other vendor slices of mindshare in 2015 include Meditech (13 percent), McKesson Paragon (5 percent) and Allscripts (1 percent). But that leaves 41 percent of the market up for grabs this year, compared with 22 percent in 2014, says report author Coray Tate.

The report, “Acute Care EMR Purchasing Plans 2015,” is available here. The cost to providers is $980.
