Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
The market environment for healthcare information systems has shifted dramatically in recent years. After years of incremental steps toward a national healthcare information technology (IT) infrastructure, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the economic stimulus bill approved by Congress and signed into law in February 2009, provides more than $19 billion for healthcare IT spending, including more than $17 billion to promote the wider adoption of electronic health records (EHRs). The Obama administration has made it clear that this $17 billion is only a down payment on the total cost of a national EHR system, which is generally estimated at $100 billion or more.
Modernization of the nation’s healthcare IT infrastructure is a cornerstone of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the national healthcare system that was enacted into law in 2010. The PPACA does not include any specific measures to encourage the adoption of EHRs beyond those already contained in the ARRA, but EHRs are one of several clinical healthcare IT technologies that have the potential to increase the availability and quality of healthcare while contributing to lower costs.
In addition to the potential benefits in terms of the quality and cost of U.S. healthcare, this is obviously a significant opportunity for suppliers of healthcare IT and related technologies. U.S. healthcare providers spend an estimated $40 billion per year on all types of IT technologies.
