The Sambav EHR system offers all the benefits of a typical EHR and is completely accessible anytime, anywhere. For example, as we keep our doctor’s clinic open during natural disasters like floods, or during power shutdown, in a windstorm and when there is snow, sleet or hail (just like the post office) and our paper records have never been inaccessible or unusable. Likewise, Sambav EHR is resistant to crashing and have an auxiliary backup to store new notes if glitches arise so as not to impact patient care negatively.

It is essential that rapidly growing technology benefits both patients and doctors, enriching our non-judgmental, empathetic, and long-term relationships.
