Increase in certified EHRs

I was reading an article today about the increase in electronic medical record products. 64 companies recently applied for certification of their electronic medical record systems. This is one third more than had applied by the same time last year. 40% of the new applications were for  new EMR products rather than renewals. The biggest category, with 26 applications, was for EMR products for children.Oother applications covered cardiovascular medicine,  emergency departments, and inpatient records. So far, 25 of the products have been certified.

I guess everybody is trying to jump on the band wagon!
