Athenahealth Takes Leading Role In Healthcare Administration Changes

Posted on Wednesday, Nov 2nd 2011

A Frost and Sullivan report, U.S. Hospital EHR Market, 2009–2016: Charting the Course for Dramatic Change, published earlier last month, reveals that the electronic health records (EHR) market is on path to grow more than six times its 2009 revenues of under a billion dollars to $6.5 billion in 2012, a clear indication that the implementation of the HITECH Act resulted in increased spending by health care providers on IT infrastructure.

To help healthcare providers to benefit from these financial incentives, EHR providers are expanding their offerings.
