I'm not sure there are any free EMRs anymore. Amazing Charts used to be very low price but now is essentially $99 a month plus a one-time licensing fee. http://m.amazingcharts.com/?id=708

It seems this will be the standard rate going forward for low-cost EMRs.

This is the first time I am posting but I just found out today that Practice Fusion is no longer going to be free and will start charging a subscription rate of $99 per provider per month starting in May.  Those of us who use Practice Fusion probably got an email a couple of weeks ago notifying members that Allscripts had acquired PF.  I thought to myself that when that happened that PF was no longer going to be free to use.  I wrote an email to the CEO of PF and an account representative called me today to tell me that PF was going to start charging monthly in a subscription model and then he proceeded to try to sell me on it by telling me that they will start offering more perks like ePrescribing of controlled substances (which they have been promising for the past 5 years), etc.  Just thought everyone in this forum would like to know.  The rep told me they will be putting out a post in March to notify all the practices.  I have to think about what to do and if it is worth changing to another EMR.  I haven't looked at prices other EMRs because as a solo practice, it was so economical to use PF.  Any suggestions from the forum on other free or low cost options for EMRs for a small practice would be greatly appreciated.
