A report on market trends for high-acuity information systems estimates that the emergency department information systems market in the United States is $110 million in 2010 and will increase by more than 30 percent next year.

The increase is pegged to the meaningful use incentive program under the HITECH Act, according to Toronto-based Millennium Research Group. The EDIS market will grow the most through 2015 in small- and mid-sized hospitals--many larger facilities already have such systems.

The report, "US Markets for High-Acuity Information Systems 2011," also analyzes the market for critical care and perioperative applications, which it predicts are poised for significant growth. The market for anesthesia information systems, for instance, is one of the fastest-growing segments of the high-acuity market, according to the firm.

The report covers two dozen vendors and is pricey--$5,495 for an individual license and $8,250 for a corporate license. For more information, click here.
