Pros: Great off-the-shelf solution for meeting the great majority of an organization's occupational health/safety needs with dashboards, filtering capabilities, and reports.

Cons: As is the case with any off-the-shelf solution, it has constraints in meeting "specific" wants/desires of an organization - customizing the system to meet a specific customer need without jeopardizing the overall strategy of OHM.

Overall: Excellent tool for maintaining electronic medical records for occupational health items, restrictions, medical surveillance, and OSHA 300 log (and related items).

Comments: The incident management side of the software is lacking and very non customizable. You get three of four templates and do not have the ability to add or subtract to the forms to customize the incident management to your specific needs and wants (other than a few items that nobody uses anyways). Questions raised to customer service on the issue are replied back with "nobody is addressing the safety management side of the software". The medical and case management side of the software works very well however, if the safety side was better, or at least somebody was working on an improvement for it I would recommend the program but at this time I cannot.

Hello Reed, thanks for your feedback. UL has made many upgrades to OHM over the course of 2016. UL has updated the software to incorporate additional features for safety users. One example is the Industrial Hygiene Module. It appears you are on 7.2.9 and the latest is 7.7. If you would like to see a demo of this feature, please feel free to reach out to us: ULEHSS@UL.com

I have used OHM in many settings. It does a great job of tracking surveillance in industry.

Comments: In the world of Health Care OHM has an opportunity to develop more Health Care functionality.

My Health Care Workers would really like to see an app for TB and emerging infectious diseases.

Additionally Work comp reporting functionality needs to reflect the events most commonly seen in Health Care Settings.

Comments: Overall relatively easy to use and is customizable to a decent extent, plus overall good customer service/support. However, it has some clunky, non-intuitive interfaces and ways of handling data (surveillances, etc.) that are frustrating as are some modules that require redundant data entry and multiple clicks when easier ways should be possible. But as I said, for an EMR it's not terrible and in fact relatively powerful and customizable and relatively easy to learn and use day-to-day.

Hi Juan, thank you for taking a moment to provide some feedback on your experience with OHM. Good news! We are working to add more user-friendly options that require less `clicking¿ in our next release. You will receive updates regarding dates for that release as it approaches. In addition, our product team feels that issues with `clunkiness¿ can often be overcome with familiarity of the product. We will reach out to you directly and explain the various training we have that could help eliminate this frustration and improve your experience with OHM. In regards to redundant data entry; it might be a good idea to review workflows and available functionality to see if some of this can be eliminated. We hope this was helpful.

Comments: I like the way we can access most of the necessary health information all on the compliance page of the vaccinations section! A quick look and I have about 99% of the info that I need for an employee.
One con that I can speak to is having to enter a TST and the reading in two different encounters. I would like to be able to enter both in the same encounter. Overall I am pleased with our OHM software!

Great product that makes my job easier.

Comments: I like how within one health system we can pull up any employee. We have multiple hospitals throughout the area and when we cover for each other or have employees that come to a different employee health nurse. We are able to pull up there chart in OHM even if they are not our employee. I like how we can get awaya from paper charts (slowly but surely). It is easy to run reports and keep track of compliance. All around a great tool to have with all of the requirements we have to meet. Makes life much easier :)

I am an Employee Health nurse and I use it everyday.

Comments: Love the batch data entry. Reports are so very detailed that they are hard to get.
Probably need more training. :)
Otherwise, I think that this is tedious and time consuming work.
I would let each employee have access to their part of the site and let them enter everything themselves. Then, their supervisor, or Employee Health nurse can make comments/corrections.
I am almost finished with giving flu shots. The batch entry is great for getting them in and counted for reports. Now, I have tons of forms to scan in. It is a waste of my time, my brain, and it hurts my back and neck to sit here all day and do this. Please help. Thanks.

Thank you for the valuable feedback, Elisabeth. We would love to take a minute and respond to all of the things you addressed. First, have you considered using the mobile vaccination app for flu vaccinations? This allows employees to fill out a consent form directly on the iPad and eliminates the need to scan things after the fact. There are over 1,000 reports in OHM, so we understand that sometimes it is hard to find the perfect report. However, our customer support experts are more than happy to answer any questions that you have on any report, and they can usually help find a report that will do what you need. Second, we do have an employee portal that allows employees to retrieve some data such as vaccination records and self-schedule appointments, etc. but it does not allow them to enter all their own data. Finally, in regards to scanning we will be following up with you directly to get some additional information and see if we can help make this easier for you. We hope this helps

OHM has been great, easy to enter encounters and upload documents.

The only problem I would say we have, is trying to update consent forms with app.
We wanted to use ipad with consent form for flu vaccines this season but had difficulty trying to understand , apply app and form etc thus we were not successful this season.

Using since 2012. Overall it's a good system. Web based makes it accessable to everyone.

Comments: Now that I'm used to OHM I like it a bit better. I do think it's a bit "clicky" and doesn't flow as easily,or intuitive as other systems I've used. I don't like having to enter the same information in different modules. I think it should save whatever is entered under all modules and be able to access information from whatever module you in, not having to go into the one where the info was uploaded.
I like it's web based. Scanning is great. Was a bit frustrating learning all the nifty little things the system could do then getting back to the office to find out we couldn't do the nifty little things we learned about in trainging due to some technical issue. But it works good for what basic things I need it to do.

Hi Audra, thank you for your feedback. In response to your comment about information being available in various modules, many of the screens do flow to the other modules if they are configured correctly. We would recommend contacting support if you have specific examples of screens that you enter in one place that don¿t save to the same screen in another place, they should be able to help you. Our support experts are happy to help with any technical issue that do not allow you to do things demonstrated in training as well.

Comments: The pros of this software is that is comprehensive in covering all aspects of employee health. I do not know of any other area that could be added to it to survey our employees.

There is ease of use and full documentation with this software for each individual employee for all the employee health aspects of employment.

I have used this software for over a year now and looking forward to learning more of its capabilites.

The issue comes when there is a problem. We struggle with customer service and getting help with simple problems. We also struggled with our upgrade. Too much time goes by without resolution.

We will be reaching out to you directly to be sure that all of your needs are being met and to ensure that we are doing everything we can to improve your experience with OHM.

I think the only con is that there are too many reports so find it difficult to find the one I need.

Comments: I have been using OHM 2 years, since coming to my company. There are many good things about it such as the ability to document injuries and follow work comp cases along, a place to store employee information, but many inefficient things as well. There are many areas that we most likely aren't utililizing correctly but trying to get the resources (other than the manual which is 100's and 100's of pages long) to help seem next too impossible without a significant cost to the company. My personal opinion was when OHM was initially set up within our company it probably wasn't set up in the most efficient and comprehensive way in order to promote a concise and complete electronic documentation system. So if you are starting from the ground up try to think of every aspect of what you are collecting and how you want to collect it in order to create the most streamlined work flow possible.

Hi Deb, thanks so much for taking a moment to write to us about your experience with OHM. It does sound like a BPA and/or configuration engagement might be helpful, but we definitely understand that the budget won¿t always allow for this kind of major expense. Our experts in technical support can definitely assist with setup questions; but unfortunately without the BPA won¿t be able to perform a full business process analysis. However, if you have questions on how to get something streamlined a bit easier, we can assist in that area. We hope this has been helpful and will reach out directly to see if there is anything else we can do to enhance your experience. Thank you for being a loyal customer!

The system is very easy to navigate to run reports, look up compliance information for employees and keep current with documentation. Our clinic staff is responsible for 7800 employees and OHM is very valuable in keeping track of annual requirements for these employees.

Dawn, good news! There is actually an option to remember the last person accessed when adding an encounter or also an option to keep the employee listing results in the list, so when you search for someone, that search will stick and allow you to pick the same person multiple times. Please contact support for help turning on either of those options. We hope this is helpful.

Comments: We have 17k+ employees over 14 subsidiaries and this software helps us manage compliance and track OSHA injuries. We have been "live" on the product for a little over a year and still finding features that help us. I really like the import feature. Our support has been very patient and responsive during this time with all of the many different requests and needs. I appreciate the quick turnaround time on support tickets! The support team is courteous, professional and knowledgeable. The only cons I can think of are that our "go-live" was not the best and wish we could have had more support at that time. There appeared to be a revolving door on our project team from OHM side. A wish for future enhancement would be a robust ad-hoc report writer.

Hi David, thank you for the feedback. We¿d love to get a bit more information about the ¿departure of functionality¿. We believe you are speaking of the portal which is only available on SaaS. If we are on the same page, there are plans in the future, dates which are yet to be released, to make the portal something that can run on self-hosted installations. When we have more information on the release for this functionality we will contact you directly. We hope this provided some insight.

Comments: We have been using OHM at CMH since 2012. Our beginning was rocky, but with perseverance and great support from OHM, we have overcome many obstacles and to date have a robust system that captures all the data that we need and produces reports that we need to present to upper management.

Really need annual user conferences so that knowledge can be shared.
