Becker's Hosptial Review Notes Kalorama Market Projection

An article in Becker's Hospital Review notes Kalorama's finding that the EMR market has exceeded 20 billion dollars, when one counts all EMR-related services that software companies perform, including training and consulting. 

One note: Kalorama has covered this market since 2007, and the market has continued to grow.  One thing that we've noted in recent reports: growth is driven by government incentives that will end in 2014.  For post-incentive growth, EMR vendors will need to do a far better job building a fan base and improving usability and interoperability in their systems.
