Capterra publishes an infographic that is interesting to dissect, though perhaps not so useful to providers except to narrow the EHR field. The graph displays the top 20 “most popular” EHRs based on a combination of the number of customers and users and “social,” which I assume means social media presence. I don’t see why social media presence would be important to anyone looking to buy an EMR, but I suppose the list is meant to be more of a popularity contest than a hardcore look at customer satisfaction, product usability, or other factors more relevant to product selection. Regardless, what I do like about the graph is that it offers a nice visual to quickly grasp which products serve a relatively smaller number of customers with many users (Epic) versus relatively more customers/fewer users (athenahealth, AmazingCharts.)
