Should Your EHR be in the Cloud?

The hype says yes but it’s not that simple 


CONWAY, NH — You’ve heard about “The Cloud.” And if you believe the hype, it’s where we all should be hosting enterprise software applications. But, the reality is that there are compelling reasons for both Software as a Service (SaaS) or Self-Hosted approaches for behavioral health organizations when deploying electronic health records.

The key lies in being able to evaluate which works best for you. At The Echo Group, we offer both on-premise and SaaS enterprise EHR and billing solutions.

We’ve created a cost comparison calculator to help your organization determine which direction you should move in.
