  • I am looking for some doctors who would like to receive my EMR program (actually a complete patient management system) which is miles ahead of any other one absolutely FREE.
    We feature not only a patient EMR but a Cardiac Program, Diabetic Wound Care program,Dental Program, CMS1500 Billing program and Medicare Program as well.
    ICD9/10 Codes, CPT Codes and SNOMED Codes are also included as well as other amazing areas that the others leave out or charge you upwards of $5,000 per module.
    Now here is the icing on the cake OUR EMR IS 100% PORTABLE AND NEVER STORES ANY DATA ON LINE, TO BE HACKED OR USED FOR MEDICAL FRAUD.
    I have created over 20 EMR Medi-Chip designs that plug directly into any PC/Mac (with Mac version of the program or a Mac computer that can run windows) and within seconds provide you the patients entire database. Any information can instantly be updated, changed, and even sent anywhere in the world you want to send it via email and we even provide an encryption program so you can encrypt is for double safety while sending it. Even the Electronic RX can be encrypted for safety..
    Enough Said?? No, you also receive any and all updates free of charge and access to our tech support 24/7/365 free at any time.
    Whew is that worth $0.00 for you? Give me a call , you have nothing to lose because this is one of those times where you can get something great for nothing..
