talkEHR is a revolutionary free EHR software suite designed for modern mobile-centric practices. talkEHR's software is fast and user-friendly with a focus on patient engagement.

talkEHR scales to any size practice and is augmented with AI-powered voice recognition software to speed up patient encounters and record chart notes. The software is specifically designed to mimic the natural flow of a practice with built-in business intelligence modules, task management, quick charting, laboratory integration, and customization for specialty practices.

talkEHR is not a traditionally designed EHR system. The software relies on mobile integration with iOS and Android apps which are used for patient engagement, voice charting, e-prescribing, and other important functions. Practices that have not yet integrated mobile technology will not gain the full benefit of the software. talkEHR also does not include any additional services such as revenue cycle management.
talkEHR was formed in 2017 and is relatively new to the industry. In 2018, Ryan Howard, the founder and former CEO of Practice Fusion, joined the MTBC group to act as as special adviser to the CEO. This has given the company significant clout, with practices signing on every month. Aside from talkEHR's own client testimonials, no user reviews can be found for the fledgling software.
