Electronic Medical Records – Hosted Vs SaaS

09 Jul

A very simple explanation of what an EMR is and what are the main 2 options of EMRs available.
1) Internally Hosted EMRs – like most famous EMRs, including VistA and OpenEMR

Here, the software is on a client server and is generally cut-off from the outside world. Some of these EMR packages also allow remote computers to log in into the software, thus adding ‘web- enabled’ feature.

2) Internet based/ Cloud Based EMRs – like Medscribbler

These EMRs reside in the cyberspace and access is via a website login. These services are typically priced based on number of doctors using it / number of patient entries / Periodic subscription fees.

               
Though the first type is considered more secure, it can be a pain to use. You would need a whole army of technicians to maintain a system like that in-house.The other option, of using a web based EMR provided as a service, would be my choice. It allows for easier to use interfaces (in my opinion), geographically free application (as it can be logged on to from clinic/hospital/home) and less expensive for small and mid sized practices.

    Exactly, what we must avoid is that television is not a negative influence on our children as they rely on the attitude and performance of individuals who are on television, there are many cases like the House that by their addiction vicodin has led to people using this medication and this is proven in the U.S., since 40% of the American population is assiduous to this medicine and is caused by the influence that Dr. House at the time, as indicated findrxonline in his article that this medicine is dangerous if not properly due to moderation.Hopefully, the media are aware that an important means of educating future generations. I thankful that we can improve the current way of life for our families.

    Very interesting, I actually can't wait until more medical software systems are in place such as the one at http://www.drfirst.com. Looking forward to the speed that they give health care providers.
