With our SQL expertise, we can customise the open-source electronic medical record (EMR) software OpenEMR. With the ability to alter numerous forms to better fit the needs of the user.

Open EMR


A lot of readily accessible options for electronic medical record platforms ( EMR ) are at inflated prices within the medical sector. We discovered OpenEMR which is one of the most popular open-source electronic health records and medical practice management solutions in the world – it has an open framework that is configurable and ready to be set up, but it is predominantly an American system that needs some tailored amendments to cater to the UK’s requirements of the medical sector.

The customisation was achieved with the plethora of helpful online resources and forums, as well as close collaboration with healthcare staff who were able to use their experience in the sector to advise on features that needed to be included in the forms. Exchequer Dynamics’s SQL Expertise was applied with our developers altering the forms for specific types of clients, including:

  • Forms for pre-op questionnaires for patients
  • Forms that utilise formulae to automatically calculate the probability of patients’ risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Forms for hospital staff collating pre-op information for surgeries taking place onsite, along with PDF reports created & sent via secure encrypted mail service

Hosting EMR

Our hosting platform is ready to implement your OpenEMR Virtual Machine in our secure data centre. We can have your OpenEMR Virtual Machine up and running within one business day of your order. For added security with your patient data, we can also implement a dedicated Windows Domain with Remote Desktop Server and VPN access – this ensures that your hosted OpenEMR instance is further locked down and inaccessible over the public internet.

Our data centre is hosted at Node4 on their Northampton site, and much like Exchequer Dynamics’s approach, they take security very seriously having built a trustworthy and award-winning reputation. The need for stringent data security practices is paramount, evident with Node4’s clients such as BMI and Nuffield Health.

They have a growing portfolio of customers in both the Private Healthcare and Public Healthcare sectors. Node4 are NHS Digital Security Toolkit accredited and meet data security standards as deemed by the NHS’s Data Security and Protection Toolkit, so you can rest assured that your patient data in OpenEMR is in secure hands.
