The Electronic Health Records market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.7 percent. This report, which focuses exclusively on North America indicates that the market is currently driven by the increased support provided by the Government through the stimulus bill. "In 2009, the Government of the United States approved the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act under which the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was passed. This stimulus bill provided guidelines to a number of opportunities to implement health information technology systems within the healthcare sector. The Act mandates that all healthcare providers are required to install electronic health records systems by 2015. This has provided a major boost for the market," reports an analyst.
