Version 3.1 is now available!
06/01/2016

Please note: our current customers are familiar with this software platform under the name Convergence Platform or CP, and for continuity we have referred to the software in this release statement by its original name, Convergence Platform.  To better reflect the software's capabilities and offerings, we have recently re-branded this software platform, and have changed the name to Momentum EHR. If you wish to explore our website further, please keep in mind that Convergence Platform is now referred to as Momentum EHR. This re-branding will not in any way effect our existing "Convergence Platform" customer base or the functionality of the software platform - you can expect to see future updates and access to our support/resources for years to come.
