FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Everything Channel, a division of United Business Media, today announced CRN's Top Health Care Vendors for 2010. According to IDC Health Insights, growth in implementation of electronic medical records and health information exchange technologies will help to spur the worldwide growth of Healthcare IT spending over the next three years to over $13 billion. As a result, these technologies are fast becoming a hugely lucrative, value-added play for solution providers—and VARs need to identify the ideal vendors with which they can partner with on health care opportunities.
As excitement over healthcare IT flourishes, many solution providers are still unsure how to get started or where they can seek health-care IT resources and education. CRN's first annual list recognizes the key players in the health-care space with indirect channel programs or direct relevance to the channel, bringing to the forefront 100 health-care vendors solution providers should know.
Final selections were made by CRN's editorial team. These 100 health-care vendors were culled from industry research, interviews with numerous solution providers and analysts, and CRN editors' knowledge specific to the health-care space.
"These vendors are offering innovative solutions to serve the growing demands of the health-care market. We applaud them for helping customers and VARs solve some of the most difficult IT problems in a growing market," said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.
The Top Health Care Vendors list will appear in the October issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com.
