Greater Interest in SaaS EMRs

Software-as-a-service Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems are generating more interest from healthcare providers, according to a report from KLAS.  Better security for cloud-based data storage and decreasing prices were cited as major incentives for considering SaaS-based EMRs.

The relatively modest investments in hardware, ease of use, hands-off maintenance, and greater confidence in cloud storage are helping to make SaaS solutions more attractice to providers, according to the study.  Nearly 300 healthcare providers currently using SaaS-based EMRs were involved in the independent research firm’s study, which discusses the performance of EMR products from multiple vendors based on participants’ responses in four key areas: response time, customer support, product quality, and “bang for the buck.”

McKesson Practice Choice and Allscripts MyWay are EMR solutions which can be implemented as SaaS models through Microwize Technology.
