What our Clients Say

I’ve been practicing for 20 years, and I can tell you most electronic medical record systems are hugely frustrating. They’re really barriers to care, time consuming, and they don’t work in a logical or sequential way that makes interacting with a computer simple. They’re written by a programmer who thinks like a programmer, who doesn’t know how physicians think. That’s one of the things I respect and love about Stratus EMR, they are so open to hearing how do we work through problems, how do we think through patient care and what do we need to do in order to document that.

Meet Us

Stratus EMR was founded in 2010 with the goal of bringing usable and meaningful software to the field of addiction medicine. We’ve worked closely with providers, front-office staff and billing professionals in addiction practices since our start. We like to think this close collaboration contributes to the value of our software.

Stratus EMR is based in Easthampton, MA.

He focuses on developing and seeking out innovative new features that ensure Stratus EMR will excel in its position as an industry leader for addiction clinics. Under Peter’s direction, Stratus EMR was one of the first software products to offer e-prescribing of controlled substances. Stratus EMR is also poised to be one of the first products to incorporate an electronic version of the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s Patient Placement Criteria. Peter is continuing to guide Stratus EMR in its place as a developer and early adopter of technologies beneficial to addiction medicine, and medicine as a whole.
