EHR Software Development

EHR software development is designing and developing electronic health records software for healthcare organizations like hospitals and clinics. In addition to implementation, an EHR development company would also integrate the electronic health records solution with other medical platforms like practice management, healthcare management systems, and medical informatics to facilitate fast and seamless hospital operations. By acting as a central repository for patients’ health data, EHRs enable doctors to access important medical information with a few clicks and make informed decisions regarding patient care.

Explore EMR/EHR Software Development


Comprehensive health systems at hospitals must facilitate seamless electronic data exchange among constituent medical solutions. This is called healthcare interoperability, enabling all departments to work cohesively to streamline operations. Ensuring this integration with other healthcare software is the cornerstone of EMR software development. OSP can build EHR/EMR solutions with custom APIs to integrate them with existing medical solutions at hospitals and clinics to ensure the speed and efficiency of everyday operations.  

Broad, integrated healthcare solutions at hospitals enable senior administrators, pathologists, radiologists, healthcare providers, and payers to work together better. This means that all departments at a hospital can exchange vital information to carry out their workflows and serve patients better.  

Software solutions installed on devices stored on-premises require a significant investment in hardware and IT infrastructure. But advancements in cloud computing in healthcare have reduced or even eliminated the need for software installed on-premises. EHR development of a cloud-based solution enables all the clinical and administrative staff to access relevant patient information over the internet. OSP can develop HIPAA-compliant solutions for EHRs hosted from the cloud for hospitals with appropriate APIs for integration with other solutions. This facilitates the secure exchange of healthcare information. EHR system development of cloud-based solutions is especially beneficial for medium-sized clinics since they won’t have to invest in IT overhead or a dedicated IT team.   

Data security is one of the primaries focuses of every EMR/EHR development company. Accurate patient data is one of the cornerstones of quality medical care, and EHRs store this data. So, ensuring the privacy and integrity of this data is an integral part of EHR development. OSP has the experience and know-how to develop highly secure electronic medical records software with features like access controls and audit trails to prevent unauthorized access. This is in addition to the secure means of exchange among other providers and payers to prevent data leakage.  

We ensure that our EHR software complies with the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Affordability Act (HIPAA) regulation.    

This is one of the clinicians’ biggest advantages of EMR/EHR development. Healthcare analytics solutions can assess patient data stored in medical records and offer useful insights and predictions to identify high-risk patients. By knowing which patients are at risk, providers can begin treatments when diseases are in their early stages. Doing so is known to result in better clinical outcomes for patients and reduce the cost of care since the disease won’t be as severe. OSP can build EHR platforms with analytics functions to analyze historical and current medical information. In addition to improving the quality of care, analytics will also improve the effectiveness of population health management.   

For telehealth solutions to be effective, the providers seeing patients virtually need to be able to access patient records. EMR development must go hand in hand with integration with telehealth solutions. If a doctor can access a patient’s records during a virtual consultation, he or she can learn more about the patient’s health. This is especially useful as EHRs contain important medical information like immunizations, allergies, medication history, existing diseases, etc. Knowing this enables the doctor to make informed treatment decisions without endangering the patient’s health. OSP can develop EHR solutions that seamlessly integrate with telehealth platforms to help boost the effectiveness of virtual care.  

EHR or EMR is patients’ medical data stored in electronic format. This means that providers can access it during consultations with a few clicks on a screen. Moreover, it also means that the information can be shared with other providers immediately and securely to enable better care coordination. OSP can carry out custom EHR development to enable providers at one or more hospitals to share patient information and collaborate on care for rare or chronic diseases.  

When multiple physicians can share access to patients’ medical records, they can share insights, exchange notes, and deliberate on effective treatments. This improves the quality of care and the efficiency of medical records management since the data can be adequately updated.  


Since electronic health records contain all a patient's medical and demographic information, they are a vital tool for effective treatment. This is especially true in the case of medical emergencies and chronic diseases, where a person's medical history can be the difference between recovery and worsening of the disease. Knowing if a person is allergic to something, has a history of substance abuse, or suffers from certain diseases helps physicians make informed treatment decisions.

Having an EHR platform also incentivizes the use of e-prescription software. This software enables patients to receive their prescriptions in digital format and avoid medication mistakes due to illegible handwriting. Pharmacists can directly obtain the prescription from the providers and cross-check the same with patient records. OSP can design and develop E-prescription solutions for providers, which patients can access for clarifications. In effect, this acts as a type of patient engagement system.

As mentioned earlier, electronic medical records contain patients' entire medical history. This means that a person's EHR would have his age, weight, medication history, previous treatments, history of substance abuse (if any), and so on. Having all this information in one place paints a complete picture of a person's health situation. As a result, doctors can know the right medication and determine which drugs to avoid.

  • Ensuring seamless and secure data exchange from integrated solutions  
  • Facilitating compatibility with legacy systems  

Electronic health records provide patients’ medical information in digital format. As a result, the clinical staff at hospitals and clinics don’t need to handle paper-based files or charts. Being a software platform, EHR can restrict patient information access for all the staff so that every member can only see what their job role requires. For example, a person carrying out medical coding can only view what he or she needs for medical coding and not the entire patient data.  

Access controls prevent unauthorized viewing of patient information. Additionally, features like audit logs can also act as a deterrent against unauthorized access. Some EHRs allow people to view their medical records through a secure portal. These features ensure the security and confidentiality of patient information.  

EHR software development includes features that support interoperability with other medical systems. This is achieved using a bridging software called Application Programming Interface (API).  

An API allows medical software platforms made by different companies and have varying data formats and standards for exchanging data. This is done by translating the formats and adjusting for the standard variation. So, the API translates the data received from the EHR into a format readable by the recipient software. This happens both ways and also across the entire integrated system. As a result, there is smooth data exchange between different systems.  

EHR system development enables providers and other non-clinical hospital staff to access patient data in seconds with a few clicks on a screen. As a result, small practices, medium-sized clinics, and large hospitals don’t need to handle physical paperwork or paper-based charts. EHR platforms enable providers to share patient data across the organization and beyond securely to engender cohesion and speed up workflows.  

The non-clinical staff involved in patient registration, insurance verification, medical billing, coding, and claims management can access the data they need with a few clicks. This enables them to work faster and be more productive.   

The UI/UX of the EHR platform is highly important when it comes to user-friendliness. It determines the navigability of the software and how easy it is to access the functions. Unsurprisingly, this also affects how easily the staff at the medical center can adopt it into their workflows. Needless to explain, the ease of use of any software is a major factor in how well its users receive it.  

In addition to the user interface, interoperability is also a major factor. It determines how easily the EHR solution can integrate with existing systems. This is a vital consideration as most healthcare facilities operate integrated systems with multiple software for billing, prescriptions, patient registration, and insurance verification with the EHR.  

EHR provides the complete picture of a patient’s health and medical condition to providers at their fingertips. This lets them know if a patient has had previous treatments, is under medication, or has allergies, and other important facts. This information lets doctors make informed decisions about treatments and prescriptions to avoid adverse reactions or unfavorable clinical outcomes.   

The presence of an EHR removes or minimizes unknowns that may have adverse side effects on patient health. Moreover, using a data analytics solution with EHR provides further insights into patient health, further improving decision-making accuracy.

The development of an EHR system happens in a series of sequential steps –  

       1. Validation of an Idea  

This is where the idea for the platform gets confirmed. It is based on the client’s needs, and that is where all the pain points, problems, and solutions are discussed. The EHR platform is conceptualized here.  

       2. Discovery and Prototype  

This stage is where the basic structure of the EHR platform is finalized, along with all its features. Developers also finalize the technology stack to be used and the cost and time estimations. This allows them to build a prototype to get a better picture.  

       3. Design and Development  

This is when the company begins to code the software and add all the features.   

       4. Testing and Debugging  

As the name indicates, this is when the software is tested to know if it functions as intended. Any problems are addressed in this stage.   

       5. Implementation and Maintenance  

This is when the EHR platform is implemented at the client’s location. Subsequently, the company also provides periodic support and maintenance services during downtimes.
