Overview
This section provides guidance to understand the key contract terms involved in negotiating the vendor contract. It is critical to negotiate a vendor contract that takes into account the unique circumstances of your center and incorporates flexibility to meet your reporting needs. Guidance is offered related to indemnification, warranties and disclaimers, liability, dispute resolution, termination and migration, and access to and use of the EHR data.

EHR Vendors Most Frequently Used by Health Centers

2014 through 2019, according to information reported by health centers in the UDS.

Updated in 2020 with CY2019 data, these graphs and tables use health center reported UDS data from 2014 through 2018 to identify the EHRs most frequently used among health center programs, and shows the change between years. Download the PDFs below for all the information.

2014 and 2015 information was taken from the EHR Form in the UDS, and 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 information was retrieved from the Health IT Form in the UDS. Each of these forms can be seen in the UDS manual for the given year here

Efforts have been taken to normalize data for aggregation purposes (such as to combine those that reported "Next Gen" and those that reported "NextGen"); otherwise, all information is used as reported by health centers without further verification. Download the PDF from the Documents to Download section below for all the information.
