Doctor Anticipates the Convenience of Cloud-based EHR

Dr. SchmidtAmanda Schmidt, OD, of Fresno, Calif., had been an ExamWRITER® user for two years before volunteering to test the conversion to a new cloud-based system called Eyefinity® EHR. She’s expecting it will bring some convenient changes for her. Notably, she won’t have to worry about hardware purchases and maintenance. She’ll be able to access patient records easily from home. “In terms of support, since it’s cloud-based, Eyefinity will be managing it, and that will make it much easier for me.”

For example, even though Eyefinity’s IT support people would manage the updates, those events needed to be scheduled and a support person had to come into the office.

As often as codes change, that simplicity becomes even more important.
