5 Top Vendors Rank in 2011 EMR Survey
Black Book Rankings, a respected and successful survey group that aims to inform and educate healthcare providers and staff about medical software, just recently posted their results for the 2011 Top Specialties EMR survey. The survey was intended to gage user reaction on the various choices of healthcare vendors available in the marketplace.
The survey allowed medical practices to choose and rank their favorite software from over 400 qualified healthcare vendors. Six surgical specialties were evaluated by over 1300 surgical practices, conducted over a four month survey period.
A group of only five EMR vendors overtook the rankings and took the lead by an overwhelming majority in relation to the other medical software vendors on the market. Greenway Medical Technologies, Epic Systems, NextGen, Allscripts and Sage ranked among the top three in every category.
The top three vendors ranked in customer satisfaction within each specialty field according to the Black Book survey results are as follows:
General Surgery: 1) Greenway Medical Technologies, 2) Epic Systems 3) NextGen
Plastic Surgery: 1) Greenway Medical Technologies 2) Allscripts 3) NextGen
Cardiovascular Surgery: 1) Greenway Medical Technologies 2) Allscripts 3) Epic Systems
Neurosurgery: 1) Greenway Medical Technologies 2) Epic Systems 3) Sage
Thoracic Surgery: 1) Greenway Medical Technologies 2) Epic 3) Allscripts
Colon Rectal Surgery: 1) Greenway Medical Technologies 2) Allscripts 3) Epic Systems
Greenway Medical Technologies has, since its establishment in 1998, garnered a reputation for its incredible customer service and efficient, easy-to-use software solutions. The results of Black Book Rankings’ EMR user survey reflect this reputation, with Greenway Medical Technologies ranking first in every specialty category.
Because only an elite five vendors ranked among the top three in any of these six specialty and subspecialty categories, it is clear that these vendors excel in customer service and satisfaction in a way that is noticeable among healthcare providers and practice staff.
Black Book Rankings is committed to surveying medical software users to gather data and information that will help providers with their decision in purchasing and utilizing comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) software solutions as well as integrated practice management systems.
