Only One in Four Ambulatory Providers Feels Meaningful Use is Having a Positive Impact on Patient Care

KLAS report looks at shifting ambulatory EMR market

September 10, 2014 — Only 25 percent of interviewed ambulatory providers report that meaningful use is having a positive impact on patient care. These results, and which vendors are coming the closest to satisfying providers' high expectations of helping them deliver better patient care, are included in the latest KLAS report on the impact of ambulatory EMRs.

"The vast majority of providers were vocal about their feelings surrounding meaningful use not yet realizing its objective of positively impacting patient care," said report author Erik Bermudez. "A common sentiment we heard from providers is that so far, the meaningful use program has mostly missed the mark."

As part of this study, KLAS interviewed more than 158 ambulatory healthcare organizations to answer the questions of which electronic medical records (EMRs) are having the most positive impact on patient care and why they are having such a strong impact. Some of the EMR vendors discussed in the report include Allscripts, athenahealth, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, Epic, GE Healthcare, Greenway, McKesson, MEDITECH and NextGen.
