drchrono EHR Review
Posted On April 22, 2014
Founded in 2009, DrChrono seeks to provide an “ all-in-one solution” for healthcare providers by offering an intuitive, useful, inexpensive application. The goal is to provide an EHR platform with billing, patient information, scheduling, reminders, and more in an easy-to-use solution where users do not have to be technologically advanced to use it. With a main office in Silicon Valley, California, it seems that DrChrono is continuing to accomplish that goal.
The DrChrono iPad EHR system is very vibrant at first glance. After reviewing and testing the application I found that it is, in fact, not only vibrant but quite impressive as well.
Creating an account requires minimal information and singing in is as simple as entering a username and password or a PIN. The 4-digit PIN is automatically generated by the iPad app and makes the sign-in process much quicker.
Although it did take a while to move through the entire application to see and review its full potential, it did not seem cumbersome, confusing, or difficult.
