Try Our EHR Cost Comparison Calculator

We know how important cost is when purchasing a practice management and EHR software for your eyecare practice. Most optical practices set a general budget when shopping for new EHR software, but it can be easy to exceed that budget if you're not careful.

On top of your upfront or monthly bill, there could be a host of hidden costs associated with your system that you aren't accounting for. These hidden costs are something you should be aware of before talking to possible EHR vendors. That's why we created a tool to help you calculate how much your EHR platform actually costs you in the short-term and the long-term. Check it out below!

EHR Cost Comparison

We've created a free online tool that allows you to plug in all of the extraneous expenses you are incurring for items outside of just your software license or subscription fees. Although some fees may be small, they add up over time and can increase exponentially if you scale your practice. These costs include things like:

  • Training fees
  • Data conversion
  • Support fees
  • Hardware purchases
  • Maintenance costs
  • Third party add ons
  • Overhead fees

There could be so many lurking expenses that you aren't including as part of your system's total cost that could make or break your decision to switch to a specific EHR software. Use our tool to determine what you're currently paying and what a new system will actually cost you.

The online tool does all the math for you so that you receive an overview of the 5 year costs associated with an optometry platform. Try it out for yourself below, it's free!
