May 21, 2019 -- The combined electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa are "highly fragmented" and managed by a varied assortment of local and international vendors, according to a recent report from research firm Signify Research.

At an estimated value of $3.7 billion U.S. (3.31 billion euros), the EMR/EHR market in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa has invited a mixture of local and international vendors. In 2018, each of the numerous vendors held a relatively small share of the total revenue, with only one vendor, Cerner, having a double-digit share at 16%, Signify noted.

The report also highlighted several different patterns in specific regions:

  • The U.K. and Ireland are served by many suppliers; at least six vendors hold an equally large share of the acute trust business in the U.K.
  • France is also highly fragmented, although some consolidation appears likely in the coming years.
  • In Spain and Portugal, integrated care initiatives are driving market growth.
  • The Nordic region has experienced some consolidation in the supplier base. In addition, international vendors gained shares in 2018 and are expected to continue doing so, even though local vendors hold the largest share.
  • The Italian market is predominated by local IT generalists.
  • The Middle East and Africa regions have begun opening their doors, with U.S. vendors winning sizeable contracts in recent years.
