The U.S. healthcare system is changing and forward-thinking providers and their technology suppliers will be critical to creating the next generation of electronic health record (EHR) software to support successful value-based healthcare organizations (HCOs). Historically, large academic medical centers have used highly customized, monolithic client/server-based health information system (HIS) and EHR applications installed on-premise to manage their clinical and administrative operations. These systems, originally developed in the 1980s and 1990s primarily to support billing and revenue cycle management alongside paper charts used in care delivery, have been enhanced over the years to add functionality to support electronic charting, clinical documentation, and the basic clinical decision support of a meaningful use–compliant EHR.
