Welcome to chugusers.com, your ultimate destination for cutting-edge insights and discussions at the intersection of healthcare and technology.

Membership is restricted to well-behaved licensed Electronic Medical Record users and employees, and a few very polite consultants and vendors of products supporting the users. Spamming, flaming, and other impolite behaviors are not tolerated. This Community Healthcare User Group is not an official organization of athenahealth, Virence Health or any other EHR promoted on our platform. Questions to athenahealth, Virence Health or any specific technology should be made to them directly.
