By adopting the textbook Electronic Health Records by Byron Hamilton, each student is authorized to download the SpringCharts EHR Demo Software for academic use on either a personal or school lab computer. The Demo includes all the functionality of the SpringCharts Single Computer Version with all optional features included, plus an on-screen guide to lead you through common features and functions.
