Providers moving toward EHR adoption, survey finds

More than 80% of healthcare providers will have electronic health records in place by 2016, according to a report by IDC Health Insights. Currently, the figure hovers below 25%. Vendors targeting this area will face a competitive marketplace, the report notes. As a result, they will be forced to create products that are easier to use, deliver a wider array of information and are mobile device compatible.
