Getting started with EHR Studio

To start using Better EHR Studio, you will need to:

  1. Register an account and log in to Better EHR studio.
  2. Connect to an EHR server.

Connecting to an EHR Server

Better EHR Studio lets you connect to multiple EHR servers. While working on a project, you will be connected to only one EHR server. For each server that you add, you will have to create a new project.

When you log in to Better EHR Studio for the first time, you will be redirected to Administration > Projects, where you will need to add a project. To learn more, please view the Add Project documentation.

You are able to switch between projects by clicking the profile icon in the bottom left corner of Better EHR Studio. There, you can also see user information, the current version of the Better EHR Studio, and the version of the EHR server.
