For many organizations, modern software needs extend beyond the traditional EHR and Practice Management solutions. Features like contact management, engagement, and mobility have all become core components in how providers deliver excellent care. In these scenarios, enterprise software solutions like AURA provide end-to-end solutions that add value and drive systems consolidation. Enterprise solutions save time, reduce/eliminate errors, provide clinical decision support, improve revenue cycle processes as well as provide new technologies to engage patients/contacts.
With all the power and functionality that are packed into modern EHR systems, they typically cost more than simple, smaller, incomplete systems. However, we’ve found that when an organization understands their precise requirements, enterprise platforms offer significantly more value.
We believe that every provider deserves a powerful EHR platform because every patient deserves excellent care. As a result, AURA was designed and developed to be scalable, so that organizations can tailor their individual solution to meet their precise needs without paying for any functionality they won’t need.
EHR Software Solutions: See How We Stack Up Against the Competition
We offer providers two different EHR software solutions: AURA and AURA Elevate.
AURA is Sigmund Software’s enterprise solution, designed for large organizations and their varied, diverse needs. AURA Elevate was developed with the small practice in mind, a precise solution tailored for the small practice environment. Though there are a few core differences, both solutions are powered by AURA’s leading workflow engine.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Our enterprise solution utilizes a Named User Pricing Model. That means each person that needs access to the software gets their own user license. This model allows organizations to grow their client base without incurring heavy fees incurred by a “pay per patient” model.
Our small practice pricing is based on the number of rendering providers, e-prescribing, e-labs and the software modules you require. This approach enables the practice to only implement features they require at competitive market pricing.
We just need to know your Number of Named Users (that’s everyone who needs to access the software), and your answer to the following questions:
Do you need a Financial Solution in addition to your Clinical Solution?
If so, would you prefer to implement both solutions simultaneously? Or would you prefer to implement your Clinical solution first?
Are there any prescribers on your staff? If so, how many?
Individualized pricing proposals are provided on the same day, or within 24 hours.
Our sales team takes the time to understand your organization’s requirements and factors such as number of users, administrative access, customization requirements, and the scalability of your EHR platform.
Generally, the enterprise solution is more suitable for organizations that require the ability to manage their own system configuration via internal Admin users. Typically, these are larger businesses. The small practice solution was created to meet the more modest needs of smaller organizations, both comprehensively and economically.
