Worldwide Physician Office Electronic Medical Record (EMR)

Market Strategies, Market Shares, and Market Forecasts, 2008 - 2013


Physician office electronic medical record (EMR) market forecast analysis indicates that the future of care delivery depends on automation of process.  The ability to quickly get a picture of patient condition depends on dashboards prepared by the primary care physician that quickly illustrate any noteworthy conditions that a patient may present. 

Efficient automated process implementation is supported by Electronic Medical Record (EMR).  EMR software solutions are used to support software developed in-house to enable the rapid construction of Web portals and other Web-based systems.  Typical implementations are related to systems running on a mixed group of servers, under different operating systems. 

Packaged applications efficiently accomplish the basic functions needed for electronic medical record systems implementation.  Business processes are automated using EMR systems.  Further EMR functionality is achieved via extract, transform, and load functions.

Electronic medical record markets are very significant.  All facilities and all medical practices need to move to automated process that replaces manual handling of written patient records. 

Dashboards are used to run businesses, they provide a way to condense information and highlight trends that need attention.  Migration of this technology to care delivery is anticipated to be rapid because it is leveraging existing technology from business to make it useful in the health care delivery arena.  The dashboards are useful because they provide a way to condense a range of different types on information into a visually presentation.

Electronic Medical Record Dashboards Make Clinicians More Productive
The advantage is that all of the features of automated electronic medical record process, none of the limitations of traditional hand written patient records are implemented as automated dashboard solutions. 

Worldwide markets at $600 million in 2007 are anticipated to reach $975 million by 2013.  Worldwide enterprise electronic medical record (EMR) software markets will grow substantially as vendors are able to leverage the EMR expertise to provide competitive advantage from automation of process using IT infrastructure.
