Hospital EHR Vendors

EHR Vendors Reported by Hospitals Participating in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs
June 2014

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. *88 of the 139 Other Vendors only supply secondary EHRs to participating hospitals. Of the 51 Other Vendors that supply hospitals their primary EHR, 45 vendors supply a primary EHR to less than 10 total hospitals with 30 vendors supplying a primary EHR to only one hospital each.


As of June 2014, 169 health IT vendors supply certified EHR products to 4,483 hospitals participating in the CMS EHR Incentive Programs.

MEDITECH, Epic Systems, and Cerner comprise 54% of the market share of primary certified EHRs for participating hospitals. Furthermore, the top 9 EHR vendors provide the primary EHR for 9 out of 10 hospitals. For the remaining 160 hospital EHR vendors, three-fourths of all hospitals reporting these vendors report the vendor's product as their secondary EHR.
