This is a big preview of coming attraction. EHR vendors are going to have to be ready for this type of EHR purchase going forward. Well, maybe not 5 EHR, but it could be close to as complex. Add in all of the practice acquisitions and the EMR switching is happening.

The real question is whether the EMR systems will allow it or at least which EMR vendors will support it. If they don’t, startups won’t be able to do much. Even if they do open it, I’m still not confident that a startup built on top of today’s EMRs can solve what pains EMR.
