Choosing your EHR type and deployment model

Determining the type of solution and its deployment model that fits your organization’s needs, resources, and budget beforehand will make shopping for EHR software easier.

Cloud vs On-premise

Many providers swear by cloud-based EHR software, which is quicker to implement, comes at a lower upfront cost, and can be accessed outside of the facility. Others, meanwhile, prefer on-premise solutions because they do not require 24/7 internet connection, offer reliable patient information protection, and lower annual fees.

Custom EHR vs Off-the shelf vs Open-source

A plug-and-play commercial EHR is efficient for healthcare organizations that require a quick setup, don’t need a lot of customization, and can afford to pay an annual fee to use it. On the other hand, open-source EHR software fits tech-savvy providers seeking a cheaper and more transparent solution. Customly developed systems are the third option, which is more expensive, but combines the best traits of off-the-shelf and open-source EHRs.
