These are a few of the highlights in our webinar: Top Free and Low-Cost Software For Healthcare Providers featuring free or low-cost software options for small to mid-sized healthcare providers.

  • Open Office: OpenOffice is a traditional open-source office productivity suite that is completely free.  The suite consists of word processing, spreadsheet, and slide presentation features (familiar equivalents to this suite would be Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, which are editable and readable in OpenOffice).  Open Office also includes drawing tools for working with images (familiar equivalent to the Windows Paint accessory).  OpenOffice is downloaded and runs on local computers.
