Searching for an EHR

I'm searching for an EHR to replace an existing system. There are so many that are CCHIT certified now. Why would anyone select a system that isn't? Price? The long-term benefits of having a CCHIT certified system outweighs the immediate cost savings of a non-certified system.

I was speaking to some vendors today. I was impressed by NextGen so I'm eager to get more information about their system. I also discovered that several companies are offering an ASP option for those who wish to save $ and have their data stored remotely.

I also wonder about the long-term viability of FREE systems. Will they survive in this type of environment?
