OpenEMR continues to flourish

Steve Campbell | EMR Daily News | March 30, 2012

An interesting article on OpenEMR published in EMR Daily News about the benefits of open source electronic medical record (EMR) systems.

"The primary benefit is improved patient care through greater insight into treatment, fewer errors, and more meaningful treatment plan coordination. Another benefit is the reduction in cost achieved through process and workflow improvements and the reduction of duplicated services during the treatment plan. There are many ways healthcare providers can implement these systems, ranging from privately owned and proprietary to free, open source software systems."

"OpenEMR is a free and open source, practice management and electronic medical records (EMR) software application. The OpenEMR system has achieved complete Office of the National Controller of Health Information Technology (ONC) Ambulatory EHR Certification for 2011-2012 Meaningful Use requirements and features fully integrated electronic medical records, practice management, scheduling, electronic billing, internationalization, and free support."
