Podiatry Advantage™ offers a single solution for office workflow, including EHR, practice
management, e-prescribing and patient engagement, according to the manufacturer Compulink.
The company says the system also features adaptive learning technology, meaning it has the flexibility to cater to
individual practice styles.
