Hi, Howard. I don’t have a ton of info here, but I did see a screen reader demo of Epic’s MyChart module (patient portal) recently. It seemed pretty usable in the demo, and the individual showing the software indicated that he was pleased with the accessibility of the software.

I also noticed that the NFB had issued a call for comments on accessibility of EHR software in 2014 (http://nfbnet.org/pipermail/humanser_nfbnet.org/2014-August/002988.html) – I didn’t find any summary of the results, however.

Hope this helps,

Subject: [Athen] Accessible Medical Heath Record and Billing Software

This may be a bit out of scope of this list ....

One of the departments on our campus is looking at medical billing/management software such as EPIC, NueMD, iSalus, Point-n-Click, and Counselear. Supposedly, none of these products are accessible. Is anyone familiar with any of this software or know of any medical record/billing software that is accessible.
