WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

As a small internal medicine practice, we are deeply indebted to HuTech for their support in applying for meaningful use and receiving payment!  Without HuTech’s assistance, the medical home submission process would have been even more laborsome.  HuTech's education to our clinical and support staff on Allscripts' EHR has developed efficiency and improvement in documentation.  We thank them for their knowledge, dependability, and experience.
