Data Migration and Mapping Functions

Medical software does not have a good reputation for user experience and intuitive design. It can seem like a full-time job just learning how to use these software solutions.  In fact, according to a study from Stanford Medicine, 74% of doctors responded that their EMR increased the number of hours they work every day and 71% say their EMRs lead to physician burnout.  With this information, coupled with the increase use of telehealth (another software to learn), it’s no wonder that providers and their staff are looking for alternatives to simplify their clinical software, while not sacrificing the quality of patient care.
