As a doctor you may not be able to completely avoid burdensome healthcare regulations or government EHR mandates, but you can at least minimize the cost of those mandates by implementing one of the many free Electronic Medical Records software options.

Below are the seven best free EMR products you should be considering.

1. Practice Fusion

This is the gorilla in the room for free EMR products. Practice Fusion has over 17,000 customers and more than 100,000 users, and is pretty much the first name you’ll hear whenever someone mentions “free” and “EMR” in the same sentence. It’s a web-based EMR that targets everyone from individual doctors, to small practices, and up to large medical groups. The software is completely free, and is ad-supported (meaning you will see relevant ads within the software). If you’d like to turn off the ads, you can request an ad-free version starting at $100 per month. Billing is not included in the software and going with one of Practice Fusion’s integrated billing partners can be an additional fee.
