About the Vendor
Starting in 2002, working with a medical advisory group from 7 Specialist clinics and the CHI Roadmap, Accuro® EMR was developed in Java with MS SQL database as a fully integrated System. In 2004 Accuro® was acquired by a public company, QHR Technologies Inc., who created Optimed Software Corporation as a wholly owned subsidiary to take Accuro® to market. Optimed has grown through 6 acquisitions, and has redeveloped the acquired best of breed features into Accuro®. Acquired companies NMS and CLINICARE had mainly GP clients; with lots of GP enhancements from their IP, GP/FP is now Optimed's largest Specialty.
