Due to the high cost of an electronic health record system (EHR) (AKA electronic medical record) and patient portal, the industry is ripe for a team of developers to disrupt healthcare technology by developing an affordable subscription based EHR.
One of the biggest discussion points for any healthcare organization is the use of an electronic health record system. Healthcare organizations must meet meaningful use. In order to do that, they have to utilize an EHR and be able to generate reports from the EHR.
Additionally, they need to be able to communicate electronically with their patients; usually through a patient portal.
All of this equates to healthcare organizations spending a large sum of money on an electronic health record and patient portal. In addition to any interfaces needed, training, implementation fees, licensing, etc. and guess what, it gets expensive!
