With a strong reputation for providing quality care, the client is now looking to expand its services into the psychiatric specialty. To achieve this goal, the client requires an EMR system with advanced features tailored to the specific needs of psychiatric care. Despite its success, the current EMR lacks specialty-specific features, prompting clients to seek the expertise of a software development company for comprehensive solution development.
