NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Book Research, well known internationally for accurate, impartial customer satisfaction surveys in the multiple services and software industries, conducted a sweeping six-month user poll to determine the highest ranked Electronic Health and Medical Record software systems for 2015. As part of a special ambulatory care research focus on implemented EHR users, Black Book reveals industry trends and announced those vendors with the highest scores in client experience among orthopedic physician practices.
Nearly 14% of orthopedic surgery practices still scramble to select and implement a first EHR system and 17% of early EHR adopters seek to exchange out original EHR choices according to survey participants. Users identified the orthopedic-centric applications that are delivering on implementation success, productivity, outcomes, meaningful use achievement, connectivity and crucial stimulus fund requirements.
"Product and vendor loyalty among several niche EHR specialists is on the upward trajectory," said Doug Brown, Black Book's managing partner. "The vendor's abilities to meet the evolving demands of interoperability, networking, mobile devices, accountable care, patient accessibility, customization for specialty workflow, and reimbursement are the main factors that the replacement mentality and late adoption are turning course in specialties such as orthopedic surgery."
Through Q4 2015 to Q2 2015, orthopedics including spine and hand surgery has been one of the fastest growing market segments of new EHR implementations, according to Black Book polling with 77% of all orthopedic practices either executed, under implementation or are in the process of selecting a system.
Based on the aggregate client experience and customer satisfaction scores on eighteen key performance indicators, the top-ranked orthopedics electronic health records systems for 2015 inclusive of all practice sizes and delivery sites is Boca Raton, Florida-based, Modernizing Medicine, Inc.
Modernizing Medicine also ranked #1 in dermatology and otolaryngology/ENT specialties in the 2015 surveys.
Other orthopedic EHR vendors with scores exceeding client expectations are: Phoenix Ortho, Exscribe, Greenway, Merge, Allscripts, Medical Mastermind, athenahealth, and NextGen.
"High performing vendors have emerged from the pack as practice implementations succeed and fail, meaningful use attestations are reviewed, and users assess their vendor's capabilities to meet their individual practice needs," said Brown.
