Every day, we help physicians to increase efficiencies in their medical practices while improving both treatment and business outcomes. We broke away from the crowd in the development of electronic medical record (EMR) systems so that we could stand out with dramatically different technology –
the intelligent EMR technology that thinks like a physician.

Designed for medical specialties, EMA intuitively adapts to each individual doctor’s unique style of practice and remembers preferences. No writing. Typing only when you choose and with drawing capabilities at your fingertip, you’ll have rapid touch-and-swipe technology that works like you do.
