I was asked a really interesting question recently:
“If you could invest in an EMR company, which EMR company would you choose to invest in?”

I find this question really interesting, because I’ve seen the detailed financials of an EMR vendor before. The business model of an EMR company is very clear and proven in many other industries.

Yet, the question about which EMR companies you’d invest in is a very different question. Certainly, there are a lot of variables when investing, but I’d love to hear other people’s thoughts about this question. Feel free to leave it in the comments or if you prefer to do it in private you can submit it on the EMR and EHR contact us page.
