Why Use an Open Source EMR

If Open Source software has resulted in $60 billion dollars in savings to consumers, then isn't it about time the healthcare sector also started to benefit from Open Source software?
 
Just imagine the following:
  • You have access to free, feature-rich EMR software.
  • You have complete control over this EMR software.
  • You have complete control over your patient's data.
  • You can hire (and fire) whomever you want to support your EMR software.
An Open Source EMR provides all of these things!!!
