MatrixCare for Long Term Care

Providers looking for LTC EMRs know that long term care settings are very different from hospitals and physicians’ offices. EMRs developed for acute or ambulatory care settings have very different functionality from those designed for LTC settings. They may not convert to long term care use. This is why you should look for an EMR/EHR that is specifically designed for the clinical and operational needs of LTC settings. And when you do, take a look at MatrixCare.
