BlueEHS by ZH Healthcare is a free electronic health record (EHR) and practice management system for providers of any size or specialty. This Web-based software supports Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems.
This system is highly customizable, down to the design and content of individual forms. For example, users can build their own templates for initial visit paperwork or treatment plans by using an integrated form builder that includes checkbox, radio button and text field designs.
Clients can also choose the order in which forms are completed, ensuring the system adapts to their existing workflows.
BlueEHS’ EHR capabilities include e-prescribing, lab integration, documentation for history of present illness (HPI), current medications and more. Its patient portal allows providers to practice telemedicine, where medical visits are conducted via software on a secure videoconferencing platform.
Scheduling and billing are among the practice management applications of this software.

Specialty: Pain management
I have been using and customizing this product for a few months now. They have a clean fast interface and their support person has been exceptionally responsive.
The printing interface and layout is still not exact but they are working to correct
I have enjoyed working with the program and it's flexibility in terms of laptops, chrome books and tablets. If you have a specialized practice, the software customization options, really allow providers to not get overwhelmed by the process.

BlueEHS is a fairly complete ambulatory EMR package built on an open platform. The cloud-based model of deployment means that the organization doesn't have the overhead and costs associated with running this application in their own data center. The organization can focus their efforts on implementing the software and tuning it to their needs. The software has a high level of configurability and customization, allowing the organization to tailor the system to their specific needs.
BlueEHS includes a patient portal, which allows the patient to review their complete medical record and to make their own entries on their health history, family history, and current issues. The patient can request an appointment and can send a secure message to their care team.
In addition, the organization may develop their own modules to extend the functionality of the product with the provided API's. The database can be replicated from the cloud to a local instance which allows the organization to have complete access to all of their data.
BlueEHS also supports multiple languages (very rare to find in any EMR platform), something that is important in countries where English is not the primary language.
BlueEHS is a very impressive ambulatory EMR solution and with the upcoming addition of inpatient functionality, BlueEHS will be on par with many of the solutions costing many times more.
BlueEHS is a fairly new product that is based on the vendor's extensive experience with OpenEMR. We've found some minor issues in the application, but these have been quickly addressed by the vendor.
Documentation can be spotty, but the support team has been very responsive to questions so far.
Anyone who has started evaluating EMR software knows that they have to be very diligent in understanding their own needs and how those will be met by any particular vendor's product. Having access to the same system that will be implemented in your organization was key to building our confidence in knowing that a product will meet our requirements.
