KAREO EHR OVERVIEW
Founded in 2004 mainly as a medical billing company, Kareo EHR has since evolved into a full-service cloud solution for independent medical practices. Practice Management and even Marketing services.
Kareo Clinical EHR was designed by doctors to be intuitive. The main focus while in development was for Kareo to be easy to use. Because it is cloud based, there is no software, and no hardware. After providing a few pieces of information to get started, your EHR is good to go.

- to be easy to use.
