A successful healthcare system is based on the relationships and collaboration between several stakeholders including healthcare insurers, medical equipment suppliers, pharmaceuticals, governmental agencies, medical administrators and of course the medical staff of nurses and doctors.
But now, healthcare has been strongly influenced by the technological innovations, and digital healthcare tools are now having great impact on the healthcare sector. Custom healthcare software solutions now enable healthcare organizations and clinicians to offer patient-centric services, cut costs, and run more efficiently by enhancing accessibility, productivity, portability, and scalability.

These records can be shared across different health care systems. EHRs include a different data, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status, laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal statistics like age and weight, and billing information as well.
