By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Health Care Technology industry with the highest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Athenahealth Inc ranks highest with a projected earnings growth of 50.6%. Following is Omnicell Inc with a projected earnings growth of 47.8%. Veeva Systems-A ranks third highest with a projected earnings growth of 41.5%.

Vocera Communica follows with a projected earnings growth of 28.8%, and Allscripts Healt rounds out the top five with a projected earnings growth of 24.0%.
