Taking EHR Software Into High Availability: Pulse Systems, Inc.

Pulse Systems and Stratus Technologies offer a future-proof foundation for electronic health record (EHR) implementations

Pulse has been developing healthcare software for more than 20 years. It offers solutions for small, medium and large health care facilities, from local clinics to major teaching hospitals. When the Stimulus Act provided billions of dollars in incentive aid for healthcare facilities to migrate to electronic health records (EHR), Pulse Systems was ready. The company had been selling EHR systems for years, and its Pulse Complete EHR software already met or exceeded requirements to qualify for Stimulus Act payments in 2011.
