There are three types of medical document management solutions namely, Paper Charts, Spreadsheet files and OpenMRS EMR applications. The paper and spreadsheet files have certain limitations when it comes to their performance and availability of storage space. Spreadsheets, created in Excel with a VBA backbone, for instance may lose data, and can only keep not more than 100 patient records efficiently. There are citations from various users implying that Microsoft Office Excel 2003 can perform a better job when it comes to analysis using the Pivot Tables than a spreadsheet which merges several spreadsheets. Thus, complex data takes a lot of time to analyze. Although, a paper chart does not limit the number of patient records it can hold and have organized data, it does not have the flexibility to manage complex disease treatment like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Tuberculosis (TB) properly.
Angel Investors are typically much better investors for a long-term business plan that Venture Capitalists, although they do not come usually with the incredible network to help you succeed. Venture Capitalists are more interested in themselves and making money on their investment then what you get out of it or the future of the business with you in it. An angel investor is interested in you, the future of the business and the possibility of making a whole lot of money on their investment. Please consider all this when presenting your business plan to an Angel Investor.
