Bar chart of the number of hospitals who reported 20 vendors as either their primary or secondary EHR through participation in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs.

Note: Within a hospital's EHR system, a primary EHR is a complete EHR or, if the hospital does not have a complete EHR, it is the EHR that meets the most Meaningful Use criteria. If a hospital has two or more complete EHRs, all of these EHRs are considered primary for the purpose of this report. A secondary EHR is any additional modular EHR used within the hospital's EHR system. *93 of the 149 Other Vendors only supply secondary EHRs to participating hospitals. Of the 56 Other Vendors that supply hospitals their primary EHR, 47 vendors supply a primary EHR to less than 10 total hospitals with 25 vendors supplying a primary EHR to only one hospital each.
