A poll conducted by Black Book Rankings, a division of the market research firm Brown-Wilson Group, ranked four electronic medical record vendors as the top internal medicine EMRs based on physician satisfaction.
"CureMD, eClinicalWorks, Greenway Medical Solutions, Henry Schein MicroMD, and NextGen GBS consistently ranked among the top 10 highest ranked EMR firms including single and multi-physician Internal Medicine environments," said Doug Brown, managing partner of Black Book Rankings.
EMR users narrowed down the vendors in categories across 18 key performance indicators from a field of more than 400 qualified healthcare software firms. According to the survey, the top four vendors had the highest scores in customer experience in the areas of document management, practice administration and revenue cycle management, e-prescribing and patient accessibility.
Other top ranking internal medicine subspecialty EMR firms for 2011 according to the survey are: Allscripts, AmazingCharts.com, ChartLogic, DrFirst/Rcopia, Epic, gloStream, OmniMD, PracticeFusion and Sage.
The results are based on Black Book's four-month survey that polled more than 30,000 healthcare records professionals, physician practice administrators, and hospital leaders in the information technology arena.
