Custom Cloud-Based EMR/EHR: Why it

Why a Custom Cloud-Based EMR is the Right Choice for Your Specialty Practice 

Regardless of the type of business you run, picking the perfect Electronic Medical Records (EMR) or Electronic Health Records (EHR) software can be an overwhelming task. The unenviable feat of selecting the software for a specialty medical practice can be even more daunting. Do you build a custom EHR with the help of a custom healthcare software development company like Solutions Afoot or settle for an off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all healthcare software? Your practice will likely invest a great deal of money and time into learning to use the software and integrating it into all aspects of your daily patient dealings. If, after all of this, your EMR systems don’t meet the needs of your specialty practice, you’ll ultimately find yourself back at square one.


1. One-Size-Fits-All Healthcare Software Is Not Ideal For Specialty Practices 

While there are some excellent off-the-shelf solutions for small practices, these products are not designed with large hospitals or specialty practices in mind. It is important to remember that when you’re paying for healthcare software, you’re not just investing in the product itself—you’re also investing in the company that built it and its ability to provide customer support and resolve technical issues quickly and efficiently. A smaller company that specializes in developing custom healthcare software for specific types of practices will always be better equipped to understand and serve the needs of those practices than a large corporation that focuses on producing one-size-fits-all products.


2. Custom Healthcare Software Gives You Control Over The Features And Functionality 

One of the benefits of working with a company that specializes in building custom cloud EMR solutions is that they will work with you to develop a product that meets all of your specific needs and requirements. With off-the-shelf products, you’re limited to whatever features and functionality are included in the base product. If you need something that’s not included, you either have to live without it or pay for an add-on module that may or may not do exactly what you need it to do. Working with a custom healthcare software development company gives you complete control over the end product—you only pay for the features and functionality that you actually need and use.


3. Easily Integrate Your Custom Cloud EMR Into Your Existing Workflow 

One common complaint about off-the-shelf healthcare software is that it’s difficult (if not impossible) to integrate into an existing workflow. With so many different types of practices out there, it’s simply not possible for one product to "fit all" when it comes to integrating new software into an existing system. That’s why working with a custom healthcare software development company is often the best option—they can help you build a solution that fits seamlessly into your existing workflow, with minimal disruption to your staff and patients. 


4. Get Up And Running Quickly With Minimum Training 

Another advantage of working with a company that specializes in developing custom cloud EMR solutions is that they can help you get up and running quickly, with minimal training required for your staff. Because each system is designed specifically for your practice, your staff will be able to hit the ground running from day one—unlike with off-the-shelf products, which often require weeks or even months of training before everyone is comfortable using them. 


5. A custom cloud EMR will save you time and money in the long run. 

While a custom cloud EMR may require a larger upfront investment than an off-the-shelf system, it will save you time and money in the long run. With an off-the-shelf system, you’re likely to encounter hidden costs down the road as you attempt to adapt the system to meet your changing needs. A custom system, on the other hand, can be updated as your needs change, eliminating the need to replace it entirely every few years.


6. A custom cloud EMR will give you peace of mind. 

If you choose an off-the-shelf healthcare software system for your specialty practice, you’ll always wonder if there’s something better out there that could meet your needs more effectively. When you invest in a custom cloud EMR from Solutions Afoot, however, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ve invested in a high-quality system that was designed specifically for your needs. 


In Conclusion…  now knowing all this information about choosing between a "one-size-fits-all" vs "custom build," it's pretty clear cut which would be better for businesses. Solutions Afoot being able to offer professional consultation services alongside expert Caspio developers gives any business owner confidence when moving forward into building their very own CMS/ERP system tailored exactly how they want it. Tranquility could be yours today!
