Most popular EHR Systems According to CMS

Based on the Meaningful Use data published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Sevices (CMS), it’s two smaller companies that lead the market for radiology EHRs: MedInformatix (14.9%), which received more than a third of its attestations from radiology, and Merge Healthcare (14.5%), which serves exclusively radiology and orthopedics. EpicCare is third with 10.2%, The next highest ranking company has less than a third as much business as either of these two, and the numbers only go down from there.

Vendor Attestations Market Share
MedInformatix, Inc 342 14.9%
Merge Healthcare 332 14.5%
Epic Systems Corporation 234 10.2%
Partners Healthcare System 140 6.1%
GE Healthcare 140 6.1%
Advanced Data Systems Corporation 102 4.4%
DR Systems, Inc. 99 4.3%
Practice Fusion 85 3.7%
Allscripts 80 3.5%
Vitera Healthcare Solutions, LLC 68 3.0%
MagView 67 2.9%
UT MD Anderson Cancer Center 56 2.4%
Center for Diagnostic Imaging 53 2.3%
Alere Wellogic LLC 48 2.1%


It’s interesting to note that because of the unique nature of radiology as a specialty, many of the popular EHRs are those that focus on imaging. Some of them—like MagView, Center for Diagnostic Imaging, Alere, and DR Systems—work exclusively in the radiology field. Some target radiology and a few other areas–for example, MedInformatix has a strong showing in family medicine, cardiology and internal medicine; Merge Healthcare focuses on radiology and orthopedics; Advanced Data Systems hits internal medicine, cardiology and gastroenterology; and UT MD Anderson Center hits each of the oncology, radiology and pathology specialties you’d expect given their focus.
