The healthcare industry has gone through major changes over the past few decades. The new digital era has made it a requirement for most major healthcare providers to use digital record-keeping that replaces many of the old paper files that were previously used to store patient data. Digital systems save space and make accessing patient information faster and easier thanks to the new technology in medical record keeping. Tech companies are cashing in on the demand for digital products aimed at serving the healthcare profession and there are plenty of startups that are finding new and innovative systems for streamlining the process. Here are five companies that are currently leading the way in electronic health records products and solutions.
