NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 11, 2011) - New joint projects and acquisitions reflect the consistency seen in several companies within the healthcare information industry. The well-documented recent market woes have certainly affected the industry but stability, and even growth, still appears within reach.

The 2009 approval of more than $20 billion of government funding to be used to expedite and encourage hospitals and healthcare providers to make the switch from paper to electronic systems including electronic health records (EHR) was touted as a move that would greatly improve patient care. Some of these technologies have significantly improved the quality of health care and reduced medical errors.

However, a new report by the Institute of Medicine recently addressed concerns about potential harm that are emerging as health care providers increasingly rely on health IT to deliver care. The report argues that demonstrated improvements in care and safety are not yet established.

Moreover, a recent study from Stanford University is questioning the advantages of EHR. The study states that digitizing medical records alone does not necessarily improve patient care. Doctor unfamiliarity with the new electronic systems was also cited as a possible hindrance to improved care.
