Unconventional EMR Software

This weekend I was thinking about some of the unconventional EMR software that exists out there. One that came to mind was SRSsoft and its hybrid EMR which from what I can tell mixes document management with some of the other essential EMR features like ePrescribing. What other EMR vendors do things like this in their EMR software?

I think another example of this is the XLEMR which is built on top of the Microsoft Office software package. Definitely a unique way to address the issue of EMR.

This is just a few examples to get you thinking. I’m sure there are many more!

Do you know of other EMR vendors that offer similar EMR packages to those listed above? Or do you know of other EMR software that takes an unconventional approach to EMR use? If you know of one or represent an EMR that is unconventional I’d love to hear about it.

I should also mention that I’m not necessarily saying that unconventional is a good or a bad thing. Although, I will say that the unconventional approaches can often teach us a lot. Let’s hear what you’ve seen that’s unique out there.

  • There is a small, interesting company based out of Malvern, PA called InteHealth. They are primarily focused on connectivity and integration but have written a number of applications, e. g., PHR, secure email, Discharge, etc., that can help doctors and hospitals to meet several Meaningful Use criteria. InteHealth’s experience in connectivity combined with their rapid application deployment can bring a lot of value to help EPs and EHs to fill in the gaps left by EMR vendors in getting to the “last mile” of meaningful use.
