Strangely enough, the company I am now working for owns Cientis, the largest HER rating system. For the United States, the website is the AmericanEHR.com. For lack of a better explanation, Cientis is really the "Consumer Reports" of EHR systems, operating on behalf of many US government agencies and US health care groups.
Unlike MedScape who have only surveyed 20K physicians over 1 year, Cientis has a base of over 750,000 health professionals and has been in continuous use for surveys since 2010.
I have perused many of the ratings for various HER vendors that comes in through our system and often wondered if the lack of a shared vocabulary for describing this one aspect of patient care is somehow responsible for the vast disappointment with HER systems by many doctors.
I would be very interested in showing you more of what we are doing and get your input into how the topic of ontologies might help. The US government earmarked $28 billion for this aspect of health care alone and if improvements can be noted and implemented, it would benefit all American's.
Since Cientis is proprietary and privately owned, I suggest we honour the IPR policy and discuss any details off list (My interpretation was that it is ok to briefly mention a private system but not okay to discuss the topic in any details on this list).
