About EHRA

Established in 2004, the Electronic Health Record Association (EHRA) is comprised of more than 30 companies that supply the vast majority of EHRs to physicians’ practices and hospitals across the United States.  EHRA operates on the premise that the rapid, widespread adoption of EHRs will help improve the quality of patient care as well as the productivity and sustainability of the healthcare system as a key enabler of healthcare transformation. EHRA and its members are committed to supporting safe healthcare delivery, fostering continued innovation, and operating with high integrity in the market for our users and their patients and families.

The Executive Committee is responsible for establishing the guiding principles of the EHR Association and for developing and implementing strategic plans.  The EHRA Executive Committee and Workgroups are comprised of industry experts in the field of healthcare information and technology with a broad scope of expertise such as medical and clinical informaticists, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and technology experts who not only represent the EHR software industry but also interact and represent the entire healthcare community.

EHRA offers unmatched experience and expertise, and provides a forum and structure for EHR leaders to work toward standards development, interoperability, the EHR certification process, performance and quality measures, health IT legislation, and other EHR issues.

The Association is a partner of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and operates as an independent organizational unit within HIMSS for companies who are EHR software solution providers. EHRA helps HIMSS establish its strategic direction and official positions on issues related to EHRs.
