OpenEMR Support: How to choose your vendor smartly
An OpenEMR to begin with is a free source of electronic medical records and practice management. It facilitates a space for clinics to centralize health records, finances, and calendars.
It covers functions from scheduling to the final payment of any by patients. It is a full HIPAA-compliant package for the entities covered by it. The covered entities are adhered to by OpenEMR’s federally certified software, HIPAA-compliant cloud services, and AWS’s Business Associated Services.
OpenEMR has easy adaptability. It can run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and many other platforms. The types of features are supported by the core OpenEMR which enables the smooth workflow of practices.
The biggest advantage it possesses is the ability to choose which vendor will support you. When you choose OpenEMR, the vendor selection is not limited to one. You can change the support model or the vendor whenever you like. It is very easy to shift.

Types of OpenEMR Support
There are three main types of support available for OpenEMR. You can choose one according to your need and convenience.
1. OpenEMR support for free
- Free support means DIY (do it yourself)
- This type of support by the OpenEMR community includes tools like vast documentation found in the forums, chat, and OpenEMR Wiki. You can find more details on this website
- Many clinics have already succeeded through this path. But OpenEMR demands IT knowledge to guarantee the reliability, security, and sufficient backing of OpenEMR
2. OpenEMR support from professionals
- Support from professional means hiring a third party to support you
- As we said earlier, you are not limited to one vendor option
- You are free to choose your vendor and change them whenever you feel dissatisfied with the installation
- This hiring or firing may depend on the factors like the rates, customer service, etc, of your current vendor or your future vendor
- Some professionals may charge on an hourly basis and some charge monthly.
- You can choose according to your budget and their expertise
