American Medical Solutions believes the best way to develop EHR and Practice Management Software is to work closely with those in the medical community that would interact with such software. In the 12 years of providing medical solutions AMS built a vast network of doctors, nurse practitioners, office managers, pharmacists and others in the medical community. These business partners where asked to consult with us and offer knowledge, experience and know-how. With the help of many years of sharing ideas, critiquing and feedback, AMS and partner consults designed and developed HeliosMD.
