Computers can raise our heads above water and empower us in a world overrun by information and awash in paper. CottageMed is one of many open-source EMR solutions to your problems. CottageMed is the easiest to use and customize. It comes free with donations welcome. We give you a solid dependable tool more capable than any paper chart. Documentation, paper billing, and patient care can be fun again. CottageMed is easy to learn and saves time unlike more complicated for-profit EMR's. It is designed by physicians to improve the health care of your patients. It is used worldwide.
All versions are free, but software of this quality normally costs $1200 or more per physician. Your donations are welcomed and vitally needed to help us continue development. Every person should donate something, and any amount is greatly appreciated. There are no draining long-term maintenance and upgrade fees, no risk of 'vendor lock,' and few new equipment costs. Cost in staff training time amounts to 1 hour for front office and 2 hours for clinical staff when we provide the training ourselves.
