For several years Kalorama Information has been studying the trend of electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR). What was already a fast-growing market dramatically changed in 2009 when as part of the ARRA stimulus law, the US Government provided incentives for physicians and hospitals to use systems.
