blueEHR by ZH Healthcare is an electronic health record (EHR) and practice management system for providers of any size or specialty. It is a cloud-based system and supports Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems.
blueEHR is customizable, down to the design and content of individual forms. 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.
blueEHR’ 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 video conferencing platform.
Scheduling and billing are among the practice management applications of this software.

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.

I was using this product for free for about a year and they have started a paid package as well. So they contacted me and asked if i needed a paid one. I obviously said yes. They have helped me with setting up and implementing for my practice. Their pricing package is well planned and has been pretty cost effective for me personally. They are actually providing all the features for all their pricing packages and charge only for the number of users of the software. The software is very fast and completely reliable. It has been over 6 months that i am using this software. Also their support is fantastic.
User friendly, completely customizable, Great customer support
None that i know of for now.
Cost effective and a true value for money.
Custom templates, easy to use, great value, responsive management, weekly meetings for data updates, physician preparation for meaningful use and great staff
Connectivity with other vendors is difficult since other vendors have proprietary systems and Blue is open source a benefit

This is an amazing EHR software that i have been using for the last 10 months. The demographics, Reporting and patient portal are the highlights of blueEHR. I would really like to suggest this to my fellow practitioners and also some of the clinics that i am in touch with right now. Maybe they'll benefit from this the way i did.
Easy to understand. Ease of use.
How the note transfers to the letter to other physicians. It does not read well. They have promised to fix this soon. Let us see.

The thing that actually made me happy with this software is its malleability and customizable option. The ability to customize almost everything in the system is something that no other EHR software in the industry can provide. And I think this is the only EHR software in the industry that is completely API integrated and this has helped us in a lot of ways. Also the customer support is fantastic.
Customizability, and Cost effective.
It needs to be able to connect to different locations.
