The 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) Act seemed to have given sales of electronic health records systems a pop.

KLAS Enterprises wrote in its annual report on EHR adoption in hospitals that while sales hit a seven-year low in 2008, purchases of the systems doubled in 2009 because of the law, according to an article on Health Data Management's website. The winning vendors: Epic and Cerner Corp.

Sales volumes were not reported.
