AC Group’s 18th report on the Digital Medical Office of the Future includes a comprehensive evaluation of some of the top PM and EHR vendor applications. Since 2000, AC Group has evaluated over 144 EHR applications including over 85 vendors that offer a combined (Interfaced and Integrated) PMS and EHR application. Sixteen years later, we have determined that the current ambulatory EHR marketplace needs a complete revamping if we are ever going to come close to the national goal of having over 80% of the physicians using an EHR by 2018.
This year's report provides physicians, MSOs, IPAs, and PHOs with one of the most comprehensive evaluations to date of leading PMS/EHR applications. The survey is an extensive evaluation of functional criteria that can serve as a valuable tool for the vendor selection process. The entire report is over 100 pages long and covers all 6 levels of technology for the physician's office and highlights vendor functionality, end-user satisfaction, and company viability.
