Medical Software Buyer's Guide
The Best Medical Software Is All About Patient Care and Efficiency
By Jason Keller, Market Research Associate
Medical software, such as EHR software or EMR software, is the digital cornerstone of any practice. If you’re going to be starting a practice, or you’ve already established care, then you’ll want to seriously consult this buyer’s guide for how to purchase medical software. In this guide, we’ll cover a broad range of topics, including requirements, which you can find in the big blue block below.
Though most clinics and care providers utilize an EMR application, there’s a chance that a few aren’t using the most effective system for their medical needs. With EMR software, patients get better treatment and practices can generate additional revenue to compensate for overhead costs. And while there’s plenty of EHR and EMR systems available, there’s no clear winner.
Businesses (and practices) come in all shapes and sizes, and that’s exactly what makes picking software so difficult. Do you want an on-premise solution? Cloud-based? Will your software be limited to just one practice or spread out across multiple practices? Throughout the rest of this article, we’ll go over exactly what medical software is, what questions you should ask, potential benefits, advanced features and what you need to start implementing it.
- Medical software frees up valuable time for providers and office workers, putting the focus back on the patients.
- Implementing EHR or EMR software is a challenging task. You’ll need a team to work through the project. We’ve got a breakdown with the specifics of that here, but there’s more general information in the sections below.
- Medical software has a myriad of components, including software suites for EHR/EMR, practice management, patient scheduling, and medical billing. It isn’t just one thing.
- You should ask current providers what systems they use and if they would recommend them to others.

Benefits and Functions
Medical software, as we said earlier, is the cornerstone of medical practices, hospitals, or any location that treats patients. It’s an all-encompassing term for the different facets of medical technology, including electronic health record (EHR), electronic medical record (EMR), practice management software and billing software. It keeps patient medical records on file and (perhaps more importantly) transferable. Medical software can also remove legibility issues, streamline clinical workflows, reduce costs and increase patient care quality. We’ll cover a list of benefits and functions in the paragraphs below.
Electronic Health Record
Electronic health records are a physician’s window to a patient’s entire medical history. They contain information like:
- Patient age
- Patient weight
- Mental and emotional health
- Immunization records
- Lab results
- Any pre-existing conditions
- Family medical history
- Potential diagnoses
- Any health-related analytics and more
EHR software altered the healthcare landscape by providing a digitally portable and medically sound record of patient health. These records are built to be shared between providers and clinics, making them a single, unified record of patient health and previous care. The benefits of an EHR system are numerous, and the savings are plentiful, making them a must-have solution for your practice.
Electronic Medical Record
Electronic medical record (EMR) is the companion to EHR. While EHR software focuses on the total overall health of the patient, EMR software is chiefly concerned with the single visit. That is to say, it’s not as comprehensive or as portable as EHRs are. However, EMRs are still valuable additions to a medical practice or hospital, as they track patient data over time (including when they need checkups or followups), examine patient diagnostics like vaccination records or blood pressure, and ultimately, they strive to improve the quality of care across the whole practice.
EMR and EHR systems focus on the patient — their health and their care — while medical practice management handles the administrative portion of owning a clinic or a hospital. This highly specialized software isn’t unlike other management solutions such as warehouse management software, and actually handles a number of similar functions. At the end of the day, this software’s job is to assist doctors and practitioners so they can spend more time healing and less time administrating. That’s where medical practice management software comes in.
In the hands of a skilled front-end assistant or manager, this software takes the pain out of the ordinary (and daily) struggle of booking patient appointments, fielding phone calls and more. Practice management software helps businesses run at maximum efficiency. It combines several functions — like charting, billing and scheduling — into one convenient interface. It can also reduce physician fatigue, which is a major consideration in keeping your skilled doctors and nurses at your practice.
Medical billing isn’t most people’s favorite part of owning a practice. Thankfully, there’s software to help make that process just a touch easier, because medical billing software does exactly what its name implies — streamlines the financial processes of your practice.
Its main goal is to improve efficiency in the billing and reimbursement cycle of the practice. This software can handle things like payment reminders, claim reconciliation, remittance alerts and even denial management. It’s partly responsible for those little slips you get in the mail reminding you to pay off a bill and is doubly responsible for online bill payment systems.
Another often-overlooked benefit of medical billing software is that it allows you to manage cash flow and track revenue.
Does infosecurity relate to healthcare software? Yes, it does – and more than you might think. In 2019, IBM published a report on data breaches, which said that the average cost of a medical data breach could be as much as $6.45 million. Compared to pen and paper methods of storing patient data, medical software provides a clear benefit here — data security. Previously, we saw volumes and volumes of patient information stored in large rooms, filing cabinets and more. With the advent of digital medical software, large rooms of easily misplaced/stolen data became a thing of the past.
With patient data now digital, many users have concerns about the efficacy of digital safety protocols. After all, don’t leaks and breaches happen? Luckily, with most EHR/EMR apps, that data is pre-encrypted before it goes to any server, meaning that even if there’s a data leak, it’s effectively useless without the encryption key.
You can also assign admins to facilitate user-control and set who has access to certain information. For example, front-office workers won’t need access to sensitive medical records.
Fewer Mistakes and Greater Patient Care
In the past, manual documentation was riddled with errors, from handwriting discrepancies to inaccurately entered (then shipped) patient health data. With accurate medical records and recording, you can expect more physicians to get it right on their first go. Better, more accurate treatment means the patient leaves satisfied and you can boost both revenue and practice traffic.
Government Incentive Programs
Government incentives make buying and maintaining medical software a lot easier. Facilities and practices can qualify for monetary rewards if they properly implement an EHR system, and if they meet meaningful use standards, they can get even more in the way of rewards (in the tens of thousands of dollars). That said, failing to meet these standards can incur equal penalties.

Move Away From Paper Records
It’s no secret that paper records are stale, inefficient and liable to get lost or stolen. The humble charting features of EMR/EHR offer one simple solution: move paper records to digital records. The benefits of paperless records are numerous. They’re transferable and can be searched and stored, making retrieval a breeze. One reason people implement EMR/EHR software is that it has interoperability with other systems, including hospitals and other emergency care centers, streamlining patient health and improving outcomes.
Improving communication in the medical world is always a benefit, whether you’re the care provider or the patient. With records so easily transferred and shared across practices, and poor handwriting so effectively handled if not entirely eliminated, medical software can streamline and enhance any communication efforts. Ultimately, this results in other practices getting a more holistic understanding of a patient’s medical history.
Enhance and Streamline Staff Workflows
Remember: these are unified systems meant for transporting a patient’s medical history across different practices and treatment centers. This can make adding to or appending a user’s charts a simple task. And it means the patient gets consistent care regardless of where they go.
Measure Practice Performance
Most medical software offers some degree of business intelligence capabilities that you can use to track and measure practice performance.
These apps allow you to automate crucial parts of the billing and management cycle, including sending out reminders, scanning health records and more.
Aid in Compliance
Compliance is key when it comes to medical technology. You want to make sure that your patient’s privacy is being considered at all times — that’s why medical software takes steps to help you stay HIPAA compliant.

Basic Platform Features & Functionality
Customer relationship management (CRM) software provides many benefits to a business, from making the sales department more productive to building customer retention. CRM tools are widely used, with Gartner reporting the market size at $39.5 billion and recognizing it as the largest software market. A sales CRM system handles many critical processes for your business, especially in the sales department. Therefore, CRM platform selection requires researching, sourcing, validating and performing due diligence before you sign a contract.
So, what are the most important features to look for when shopping for an EHR or EMR product? You’re not going to like this answer, but medical software has a wide range of basic features and functionalities, so it’s hard to narrow this list down to just a few. However, that won’t stop us from doing our best to give you a more holistic view of this software category.
|Charting & Documentation||
Charting and documenting medical data is one of the most important components of medical software.
EHR software, a lot like EMR software, records and stores patient data like current medication, patient history and more.
Improving data accuracy is another function of medical software. Often times data can be lost due to inefficiencies in pen-and-paper record keeping. Sometimes, whole visits can be lost simply due to a doctor’s poor handwriting, so ensuring accurate data entry is key.
E-Prescribing is a modern convenience that can significantly improve the quality of service for the patient by putting their information and important notifications back in their hands.
E-Prescribing systems can send out alerts on prescription refills, as well as manage prescriptions and payments — all from a patient’s mobile device.
On the physician’s side of things, doctors can quickly update prescription information and refill dates before sending that information electronically. In the pharmacy itself, clinicians can dispense medication in the appropriate doses and check for any potential interactions based on a patient’s current prescriptions.
You can’t have a practice without any patients, and you can’t have any patients if you don’t schedule any of them.
Medical practice software often comes equipped with a technology known as “smart scheduling,” which efficiently schedules patients into rooms with the correct tools and equipment for the appointment.
Patients also get the benefit of choosing their own dates and times for their appointments by using a mobile application or web-app.
|Billing & Payment||
Billing is one of the cardinal features of, you guessed it, medical billing software.
Almost every EHR system integrates with a billing platform, meaning you can automatically create billing statements based on procedure and visitation, as well as make custom billing templates.
Good billing features should also be able to distinguish between patients who are on government insurance, those who have purchased additional coverage from the government and those who are on private insurance.
With the 2016 rollout of the International Classifications of Diseases, Version 10 (ICD-10), it’s important that your software be able to handle ICD-10 billing codes to make sure that your customers are being properly billed.
One of the most highly-coveted features for an EMR/EHR system is portable records. One department in your clinic can store a patient’s name and medications, and another department can process the prescription and billing.
EMR/EHR can also send that information across clinics, meaning that a customer’s information is secure from prying eyes, yet accessible when need be by doctors, nurses and those with authorization.

Top Features & Functionality
If it wasn’t a priority already, treating more and more patients as well as generating more and more revenue is becoming the standard goal across practices — and medical software can help you meet that goal. Aside from the bevy of standard medical software features, your organization should also consider looking into these advanced features to help your practice stand apart from the competition.
What is a patient portal? It’s a way for your patients to get involved in the software side of their own health. They give patients access to their own health records, appointments, prescriptions and more.
|Population Health Monitoring||
Relatively new on the scene (but touted as being the next advancement in patient care) is population health monitoring. This is a practice management tool that accomplishes quite a lot. It identifies patients to be billed and then schedules them for their routine (and if necessary) follow-up moments of care. One of its cardinal features is its ability to keep people in the system for routine health checks and holistically monitor large populations of clients.
Insurance verification is an advanced feature that helps practices verify insurance coverage for certain procedures. It collects insurance information, validates it and then sends it to payment administrators in the network to assess eligibility.

Other Key Considerations
In addition to its numerous functionalities, here are a few key considerations to take into account when you’re dealing with medical software as a whole:
When picking out medical software, it’s important to think about which component you’re going to opt for (EMR, EHR, practice management or billing), and how that software will integrate into your practice’s workflow. Here are some questions you can ask yourself:
- Do any of these provide automated features, and will automation integrate into my current workflow?
- Similarly, will automation help ease any pain points in my current workflow?
- How easy is it to enter information into a patient’s medical chart and then transport it to the relevant departments?
- What are you trying to accomplish by installing medical software?
- Will you be able to deploy it on-premise or will you need to use a cloud-based product
- What are your specific needs for your medical software?
- Will billing help minimize denial resubmission and maximize charge accuracy?
- Does the practice management software offer basic smart scheduling and rooming features to put the right clients into the right rooms?
- Are you pivoting from a pen-and-paper system? What sort of vendor support will you need to make the transition easier on your practice?
How customizable is the product? Will it let you design and generate templates (for billing, medical charting and scheduling) and does it come with any pre-installed templates for you to take advantage of?
Is the software going to ensure HIPAA compliance and provide adequate patient privacy? Will the information be kept on a need-to-know basis given the rise of data breaches and malware exploiting privacy?
Scalability is defined by how well the software “grows” with your practice and how well it meets your demands as needs arise. Medical practices aren’t static entities. They’re dynamic, with patients flying in and out of doors often times faster than you can treat them. Scalable medical software is able to meet the needs of a growing (or shrinking) business, your practice included.
Because medical records are designed to be portable, it’s important to consider how the software is able to send and receive important files and other information from different products or practices. When selecting medical software, pay close attention to the integration and compatibility features section.
Where will this software be deployed? Some systems are best suited to a cloud environment and can ease the burden on your own systems. A cloud deployment almost always involves a subscription plan, and plans can vary depending on how many users will be taking advantage of the software.
On-premise deployments need a place to live on-location and will require an installation period (more about that here). Additionally, on-premise deployments usually have an upfront license cost.
Expert recommendations and analysis of the top products
Selecting medical software can be an uphill battle. After all, there seem to be a million different factors to consider. We’ll go over those in detail so you can make an informed decision on what software is right for your type of business.
Identify Key Stakeholders and Solicit Input
You’ll want to get opinions from those who are going to be using the software. This includes nurses, doctors, clinicians and back-office staff. Clinicians will be primarily using EMR/EHR software, while back-office staff will concern themselves with practice management, billing and scheduling.
Assess Billing Needs
Billing is, understandably, a crucial feature of medical software. What you’ll want to do is look at your practice’s patient volume and traffic, as well as its demographic needs and types of insurance that are most common.
It’s helpful to record all of your current expenses and the billing habits of your customers. This way you can better anticipate any costs that might come up in the future, and spend less time navigating difficult financial landscapes.
It’s vital to understand how your practice already performs when it comes to handling patient volume and quality of care.Then you should ask yourself if, based on the features and benefits of your chosen medical software, you can improve on that performance (and how).

Medical Software Comparison
After you’ve narrowed down your software selection to just the top two or three vendors, it’s important at this stage to request a demo. Seeing your potential software in action should help you envision how your practice is going to use it, and if it’ll meet your diverse needs.
However, you don’t rely solely on your vendor’s word for how the software will perform. Ask questions that specifically relate to your needs and wants and gather as much intel from the vendor as possible. See if you can find a practice that uses your chosen software and ask them your questions. Be candid when asking — don’t shy away from asking about positives and negatives. A few good questions to ask are:
- Do you like the medical software you use?
- What do you like about it the most?
- What do you dislike about it the most?
- Has the vendor been helpful in supporting you during implementation and post-implementation?
- What did your system cost you, and how did you implement it?
Questions to Ask Yourself
Sometimes you’ve got to ask the tough questions. Before you make a final software selection, you should talk to your vendor and draft a list of questions to ensure you’re getting everything you need out of a potential solution. Some important questions to consider are:
- What is your budget for your new software and is it priced out to accommodate a subscription-based pricing plan?
- Do you predict significant growth in your practice? If so, will your medical software be able to account for that growth?
- What kinds of metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) are you trying to hit, and will a new application help you hit them?
- What type of deployment will you need? On-premise or cloud? Or maybe you’ll need a hybrid system?
- What IT resources are available to you? This will define the type of implementation you choose, be it cloud-based, on-premise or hybrid.
- What type of customization (if any) will you need for your software?
- Do you have any existing systems that won’t integrate with your medical software?
- Do you expect needing support, and if so, what kind of support options are available to you?
- Is data migration going to be necessary?
Questions to Ask Vendors
You’re going to potentially be investing in a long term software installation, so don’t be shy about asking medical software companies these crucial questions.
- How long have you operated in the medical software space?
- How are you HIPAA compliant?
- What have other customers said about your product?
- What is the typical installation time for your product, and can we expect any downtime?
- What type of reports can this system generate?
- How will I know about any contract issues that arise?
- What kind of customer support do you offer? Is it tiered?
- How customizable is the system, and will customizing it result in additional charges?
