Good chunk of practices seeking to replace EMR

More than one-quarter of both large and small ambulatory practices report they are considering replacing their EMR, according to a KLAS report on ambulatory EMR perception.

Another 12 percent would like to replace their system but cannot because of financial or organizational reasons, according to the study.

“There are different reasons for this shift,” said report author Jared Dowland in a release. “Larger practices are seeking to consolidate from multiple EMRs and tighten their relationships with nearby hospitals, while smaller practices are seeking to resolve functionality, support and cost concerns.”

KLAS interviewed more than 400 large and small practices across the country about their EMR solutions. The report offers their thoughts on why they want to replace their system and with what.
