Real-world EMR Prices From BuyerZone Buyers
Getting an idea of market prices is important before making any business investment. We surveyed practices and compiled a sample of what they paid for electronic medical records.
An EMR is a significant purchase for any practice, but the long-term benefits will outweigh the initial investment. Try not to set a budget before you talk to several EMR providers to understand the range of capabilities and costs.
The quotes below show the variety of pricing you'll encounter when shopping for EMR: purchase costs range from under $2,000 to over $200,000. You may also choose an application service provider (ASP) system, which relieves you of the burden of maintaining in-house servers - in that case, you're more likely to be charged either a flat monthly fee, or a per-visit usage fee.
You may also be responsible for other fees such as training and enhanced support, although the vendor may include those costs in your price quote. Software updates are usually included in ASP pricing, but in-house software vendors may charge you for updates as they come out.
