With nearly every aspect of life gone digital, it is perhaps odd that the healthcare system has been slow to follow suit. A study by the New England Journal of Medicine revealed that only 1.5 percent of hospitals surveyed had a comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) system in place, suggesting many health care facilities are still heavily relying on paper-based system. A new surge of technology startups are now zeroing in on the opportunity and competing to create the best EHR on the market.
CareCloud is in the business of EHRs. Their goal is to unite the disjointed healthcare industry by offering providers with cloud-based software. Because CareCloud’s EHR is cloud-based, it allows health care professionals to manage and collaborate on patient records from any computer with Internet access.
