We all know what bundled software is from our home computers that we buy and now it appears that this is making it’s way into the EHR/EMR and Practice Management business. Last year Dell partnered with Sam’s Club and another EHR system.

McKesson states that every system will be tested. From the article here I am guessing that since it states “for easy installation” the software will need to be installed from a CD, but that is just a guess as it is not explicit. At any rate with a bundled system tested there’s a working relationship that the hardware will support the software system and make it more of a one stop shop on the internet. I still see good old Medisoft Practice management is still around and not too long ago they introduced their EHR, so there’s lots of choices it appears.
The bundles are to be pre-configured and available through a distributor such as Tech Data. BD
