Comments: Overall a great system, with great reps!

Pros: You can verify insurance through the system. Easy to navigate. Good representatives when help is needed.

Cons: Sometimes we are not able to verify insurances or the system goes completely down. Has several unnecessary categories on patient demographics.

Excellent product. Should have done this years ago.

Comments: I like to be self-sufficient. I have used OpenEMR for over two years and find that it suits my needs perfectly. That having been said, I am a specialist and have had to develop many of my own forms and other customizations before the product was directly useful to me. I have tended to view that more as a hobby than an impediment but for those who are not so inclined it appears that there are vendors about who would be happy to do this work for you, presumably for a price. Alternatively, the help forums are active and helpful, although one must know how to define and ask the question before the answer will be of benefit.

Pros: The price is wonderful! The product works, although not necessarily right out of the box if you have special needs. Flexibility is great. Freedom from support costs is gratifying (although it does require one to become proficient to the desired level if you wish to avoid all support costs). Fancy equipment not required. Works on multiple platforms.

Cons: There is a learning curve, especially if customizations are in order. My suspicion is that this would be relatively quick for primary care practices. Specialists might require additional customization that will either need to be done in-house or contracted out. This is not as much a con as simply a fact. I'd much rather have an open source product that I can customize myself than a proprietary one-size-fits-all product for which I can't access the code and have to keep running back to the mother company every time I want to make a minor (or major) change.

Pros: It is easy to navigate and that's about the only good thing about it

Cons: Super slow and it doesn't check insurance eligibility

Recommendations to other buyers: Be more organized. They have everything all over the place and updates sucked even more than what they already had.

A little difficult to use from a medication stand point.

Pros: Software's strength is in the medical record. Medical records are detailed and organized.

Cons: Vendor is weak in account management, such as insurance follow up, posting payments and adjustments to correct dates of service. Not much reviewing and reporting outliers such as underpaymentsand producing Receivables aging reports,

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out the accounting side of software. Medical records are important and knowing your financials is as important.
