WHY KAREO

We believe in independent practices

We’ve chosen to focus on independent practices because we believe in what you do. We share the vision that independent practices are the best place for building relationships with patients and providing the most meaningful care. In fact, we believe that this is why people become health care providers in the first place.

Practice better when everything works together

Kareo is the only cloud-based, clinical and business management platform designed specifically for the independent practice. Our integrated modules work together as part of a seamless platform, so you have helpful tools to tackle your toughest administrative challenges. These tools include electronic health records, practice management, marketing, patient engagement and billing software. Plus, you’ll find proven, integrated third-party apps and services in Kareo Marketplace to make your life even easier.
