GovWin presented the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Market report to provide insight into the EHR Federal market to analyze current trends and challenges in the marketplace, identify key purchasers and contracts, and to identify key EHR vendors. SpinSys ranked on both lists of EHR top vendors: top 20 overall and top 6 overall in small business. 

Through this industry ranking, SpinSys solidified its status as the premier small business systems integrator for cloud based solutions, specializing in sustainment and modernization for the enterprise. SpinSys is proud to rank on these two EHR top vendor lists, as this visibility will further allow the demonstration of expertise and understanding of medical data including inpatient and outpatient data coupled with a strong understanding of the industry’s direction for modernization and integration among diverse Health Information Technology (HIT) systems. 

An EHR is a collection of information about the health of an individual or the care provided, such as patient demographics, progress notes, problems, medications, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data, and radiology reports. A focus on patient accessibility, paying for performance, modernizing health Information Technology (IT) systems and emerging technology will spur spending within the health IT market. 

SpinSys understands current healthcare trends and the emergence of new EHR platforms and modernization updates. Federal health IT spending over the forecasted period is greatly influenced by new platforms and is driven by updates including:

  • The Department of Defense deployment of a new EHR system, MHS GENESIS. The Department of Veterans Affairs is expected to implement the same solution. 
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs modernization and consolidation of legacy VistA EHR systems. 
  • Other Federal agencies requirement of smaller EHR systems as part of their mission (i.e., Health and Human Services, the Federal Prison System, Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

Efforts to increase medical innovation, mobile health, health care cost control and combat public health issues such as the current opioid epidemic will also solidify investments in health IT products and services.
