Luminello vs Generic EMRs
- Aim to serve as large a market for physicians as possible, and therefore include features for all medical professions, thereby leading to overwhelming, crowded screens and inefficient workflows (“click click click click…”)
- There are no free versions on the market currently
- Some make money by selling ads to you while you use it, and charging high markups for add-ons, such as insurance claim processing.
- Most require a long-term contract.
- Some limit e-prescribe controlled substances to certain states.
- To reduce costs, most don't invest heavily in customer service – which is why it can take days to weeks to hear back from them when you have a question.
- Some have unclear policies about what they do with non-anonymized patient data.
- Focused on serving the needs of behavioral and allied health providers exclusively – Luminello is designed by and for them, and therefore has just what you need, but no unnecessary features.
- Clean, clear and easy-to-use screens.
- Offers a free lifetime version.
- Does not display advertisements in free or paid versions.
- E-prescribe controlled substances in all 50 states.
- Pricing clearly displayed on our site, with no long-term contract required.

- Will never sell non-anonymized patient data.
- Not funded by venture capital or run by major corporation, so we have 100% control over the features we offer and rates we charge.
- And, our founder uses Luminello every day!
