Providers often want a custom experience to help smooth workflow, productivity and protocol compliance. Medplum provides a great starter kit and examples for those who want a custom experience, but don't want to invest a lot of resources into infrastructure.
The Medplum custom EHR sample application is called Foo Medical provider. You can request access to view the application, or view the source code.
Foo Medical Provider is intended as a sample, and the experience is truly up to the developer to determine. It is built off of the Medplum API, and is HIPAA compliant and SOC 2 Type 2 certified. Detailed compliance information can be found on our compliance portal.

Specialties, patient education and more
Medplum data model is based on FHIR and has data structures and ontologies that support specialties like pediatrics, oncology, immunology and more. Create a custom EHR that is purpose built for a specialty.
All applications built on Medplum will inherit FHIR API access, which can be given to partners as needed. Control what data partners can see with access controls.
Certification and Scope
There is a wide range of functionality that could be included in an EHR. Organizations building a custom EHR often want to go deep in one area, while maintaining a base of functionality that's common in EHRs. It can be useful to read the ONC certification guide to learn what features are commonly found in an EHR.
In general, HIPAA compliance is a must for EHRs, SOC2 Type 2 audit is recommended, and ONC Certification is not required, except in some scenarios.
