  1. Interesting report. Bizmatics EHR called PrognoCIS seems to be mentioned more often in the list of Big Names of Electronic Health Record Companies. I am pleased to see this strength being identified by industry analyst.

  2. This report is an extremely helpful resource for vendors, physicians, and patients alike, as everyone in the industry should be made aware of these trends. It’s a great way to educate on the EMR market.

  3. The first 2 items listed, and especially, “United States, European and Asia Pacific EMR Market Estimates”,…. fascinates me.
    Is our US expectation of what an EMR should do, exactly the same as the expectation in other countries? What would the reaction be of a doctor in Asia, or Europe, to a product we consider mature in the US, such as PrognoCIS? Have they developed along the same lines, or are they going in some other, more innovative directions, due to the population demographic and the need to treat different diseases and with different priorities?
