That’s why Axiom, powered by HiMS, is designed for flexibility. Here are just a few of the reasons why we built Axiom with flexibility in mind, as well as a few of the other considerations that are important to us. 1.

What a perfect patient lifecycle really looks like

The faults of legacy EHR software are so well-known that EHR technology has been heavily criticized by the health care industry for decades.
