Electronic Health Records: United States

This report forecasts to 2024 US expenditures on electronic health records (EHRs) in nominal US dollars.

EHRs represent the comprehensive aggregation of notes and results from all patient interactions with providers in the healthcare system.

EMRs were the first step in creating EHRs and comprise the backbone of EHRs.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
