Let’s face it: any patient making a trip to the emergency department (ED) already doesn’t want to be there. Besides critically ill and injured patients, many visitors to the ED are only there because they don’t have a primary care provider and can’t get one. Due to healthcare reform, emergency medicine providers are facing huge increases in patient and patient throughput and efficiency are more important than ever; emergency department information systems (EDIS) can either break or make a clinician’s workflow. In this collection, we get to the bottom of which vendors are best suited to help providers as they take on more and more patients.

Increase in ED visits

What exactly is driving the increase in ED visits? A lack of primary care providers and an increase in insured patients have created a perfect storm for patients who have little choice but to turn to the ED for treatment.

ED growth to rise by the millions

As ED visits continue to rise, so does the global EDIS market. In 2014, the EDIS market was valued at $312.68 million and is expected to grow to $635.50 million in 2019. We got feedback about ED visit volumes over the past two years, and calculated estimates of growth over the next two years, segmented by facility size.

Verbatim provider feedback about specific vendors

More than 400 emergency medicine providers revealed that about a third of hospitals will be replacing their ED vendor. Who’s on their list and how can they change providers’ minds?

EDIS solutions being targeted for replacement

We’ve identified which solutions are considering being replaced and the underlying reasons why– What can vendors do to keep their clients and save at risk contracts?
