OpenEMR Rolls Out Easy Install Option for Amazon’s Cloud Services

OpenEMR, a popular open source electronic health records (EHR) and medical practice management solution, has just upgraded their cloud-services capability with the latest release.

MHW has learned that OpenEMR can now be operated as an out of the box cloud-services solution using Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. With several simple steps, end users can get their OpenEMR on the cloud and take advantage of all the benefits that the cloud provides.

Cloud technologies have been a staple in technology and business strategies over the last decade, and the healthcare industry is no exception to this trend. Being a web platform, OpenEMR is well suited for use as a cloud-services application. To date there has been no out of the box OpenEMR cloud package that takes full advantage of everything that cloud-services has to offer.

“The [OpenEMR] system is a natural fit for the cloud”, notes Dr. Andre Millet, a Brazilian physician and OpenEMR contributor. “Setting up an EMR for hospital use should be as easy as signing up for a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution. We are reducing the distance between the clinician and technology, providing tools that diminish repetitive tasks and bureaucratic procedures, allowing the provider more time for applying what he or she excels at.”
