Commenting on Telstra Health’s EMR, customers interviewed by KLAS stated Kyra Clinical has had “significant improvements to product stability and the user interface”. In particular highlighting, “One thing that I really like about the solution is that it has a mobile app that can function on iPads. We have a lot of clinicians who do community-based, home-visit work, so the system’s app is very useful for them. That is really positive.”
Kyra Clinical customers also noted a number of developments, including “better relationships and numerous product enhancements, and the latter has resulted in expanded functionality, enhanced stability and upgrade quality, and improved usability.”
