Electronic Medical Records open doors for investment

In a recent article at The International Business Times, they look at how the road has been paved for full integration of electronic medical records. Not long ago, the Americans didn't know about the internet, and now today, it's fully integrated into our lives. The Times is paralleling the adoption of electronic medical records to this. With the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, $20 billion has been promised to medical professionals who step up and begin using these records. This article points out that while few have still doctors and hospitals have done so, it is the future. But there are few companies that offer services to do this for the offices.

They state: The list of companies offering services to capitalize on the wave of practitioners switching to electronic health records is small with only a limited number of companies having the infrastructure and products completed for marketing.

What do you think? Will we see this market emerge? What companies do you see on the forefront of medical records conversion?
