SPI Digital Health: Nervecentre: How BoB CIS Vendors can Compete With Global EHR Giants

Published: December 19, 2023

Less than three months ago, Signify Research explored how an accelerated convergence of EPR/EHR systems around larger vendors serving the UK’s 42 Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), and the 215 or so trusts within them, was changing the face of the country’s vendor competitive landscape.  

Illustrating the point, we noted in the Insight how Oracle Health, System C, Dedalus and Epic had together cornered around 70% of the total market.  

We surmised that for health IT buyers, motivated by an NHS policy encouraging trusts within each ICS to harmonise procurement towards a common EPR/EHR solution, the gravitational pull of the larger international players would intensify. We warned that even tier-2 vendors like Allscripts/Altera and InterSystems would not be immune to this steady shift.
