The convergence of these forces is on a different order of "disruption magnitude"People have created a convergence:It results from their behaviorIt is an outcome of consumerization and democratization of ITBecause technology is now good enough (and ubiquitous)
The Gartner enterprise EHR generation model has created metrics for core EHR capabilities that enable easier comparisons of vendor offerings, as well as enable HDOs to set internal expectations more accurately. Our vision is that EHR offerings will evolve through five generations, transforming from very simple systems that provide results reporting into very complex, fully integrated systems focused on the tasks directly related to promoting wellness and providing medical care for individuals across the entire healthcare continuum, within a single healthcare enterprise.In determining the generations of EHRs, Gartner evaluated each of the eight core capabilities of an EHR and determined the progression of functionality expected. To create the generations, we then divided that functionality into five reasonable, incremental steps, but also considered the synergy of each set of functions. A given EHR product may have some increased functionality in certain areas, but to be considered an n-generation product, it must at least have all of the basic capabilities listed for that generation. In addition, each subsequent generation must have all of the capabilities of previous generations.Generation 3 products have been available since 2005, but Generation 4 products are not expected before 2015.
