BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- gloStream, maker of gloEMR, gloPM and gloSuite – the only electronic medical record and practice management software with Microsoft® Office built right in – today announced the "glo For It!" electronic medical record ("EMR") replacement program.  Under the program, any Practice that upgrades to gloEMR from a competitive EMR will receive a gloPM practice management license, a $7,500 value, for free.

With an increasing number of EMR companies discontinuing medical software products, or products not living up to expectations, many Doctors are frustrated, concerned and feeling stranded.

"Doctors spend months, even years, evaluating EMR software and they deserve a solution that is flexible, customizable and reliable not just when they buy it – but into the future," said Mike Sappington, gloStream's CEO.  "Building our medical practice software on the Microsoft Office platform ensures that the Doctor's most significant investment – patient information – won't get trapped in a proprietary platform."

gloStream's gloDNA process ensures that gloStream solutions fit the unique needs and preferences of each Doctor and Practice.  gloStream enjoys a 100 percent implementation success rate.  Every single gloStream client that has purchased the organization's EMR software continues using it successfully today.

"The switch that we made from a competitive product to gloEMR was one of the best decisions our Practice has ever made," said Dr. John Samani, President of the Institute for Athletic Medicine in Auburn Hills, Michigan.  "I've found gloStream software to be powerful, easy to use, and because it's built on Microsoft Office, I'm confident that it will be supported years from now."

Thanks to $20 billion in economic stimulus funding set aside in the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act, a growing number of Doctors are choosing EMR applications.  gloStream offers a host of resources and tools to help Doctors learn more about the economic stimulus.  The gloStream Website contains an economic stimulus section and Doctors can also sign up for a gloStream sponsored economic stimulus Webinar at
