It’s time to recognize all the great companies that have been supporting the work we do here at EMR and EHR. We have a really amazing list of advertisers that support the writing we do here on EMR and EHR. As you’ll see from the list below, many of them have been advertising with us for many years. Their continued support is much appreciated.

New EMR and EHR Advertisers
Xerox Healthcare – Over the past month I’ve started to work with Xerox on a number of fronts. Many of you will likely remember my blog post about TEDMED. My trip to TEDMED was made possible thanks to Xerox. Plus, Xerox has been advertising on my site as well. It’s impressive how Xerox has shifted from being a copier company to a major player in healthcare. I should also mention, I’m doing a Google Plus Hangout with Xerox to wrap up the TEDMED experience. Come join in live.

simplifyMD – Besides doing some cool EHR cartoons, they also offer a different approach to EHR than many EHR vendors out there. They have a clear focus on the productivity of the physician. They have a solid team behind the product and we’re glad to have their support.

Canon – I imagine many people’s first thought with Canon is their excellent line of cameras. However, Canon also has an excellent line of scanners as well. For example, I previously reviewed the Canon imageFORMULA DR-C125. It’s an excellent scanner that can handle the heavy scanning workload of healthcare.

Forerunsystems – One of the specialty specific areas of EHR has always been the ED. Forerun’s FlexChart specializes in clinical documentation solutions for the ED. FlexChart provides quality care enhancements that are usable, flexible, and work with any style of documentation and workflow, as well as supporting safe hand-offs with enhanced provider communication. FlexChart is designed to work with and enhance any existing hospital-wide system, while enabling ED physicians with the tools they need that are unique to emergency medicine.

Chetu – The best introduction I can make to Chetu is this interview with Craig Schmidt, Director of Global Sales for Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals at Chetu. As that interview illustrates, Chetu has developing software for the healthcare industry for a very long time. It’s really amazing to see the depth of healthcare expertise combined with broad tech knowledge.

ZH Healthcare – For those who wonder how mature open source is in the EMR world, all you have to do is take a look at ZH Healthcare. They offer an EHR product based on the community version of OpenEMR along with ZH Healthcare’s proprietary enhancements and support services. I’m a huge proponent of open source software in general and so I’m really happy that a company built on the back of OpenEMR’s open source software is supporting us. If you like open source, then take a look and see what ZH Healthcare is doing with OpenEMR.
