HIC 2018: Growth in the state of the EMR nation

There has been about an eight per cent increase in the use of integrated electronic medical records by Australian hospitals over the last year, led by significant roll-outs in Queensland and two major uplifts at Eastern Health and Peninsula Health in Victoria, according to The Checkley Group MD Bruce Pedersen.

In an update to his 2017 state of the EMR nation, presented at the Health Informatics Conference (HIC 2018) in Sydney this week, Mr Pedersen found that Cerner still massively dominates the Australian EMR landscape with about 90 per cent market share, including the majority of public hospitals in NSW, all of Queensland and a number of large hospitals in Victoria.
