Likelihood to Recommend

AdvancedPM (formerly ADP AdvancedMD)

  • I would make sure that the medical practice has a strong IT support team.
  • You must have a trainer that can stay on top of changes and train new personnel how to use the software as it is complex and offers a lot of features.
  • A critical question is: Are you ready for digital records stored in the cloud and do you have the proper equipment for moving to cloud storage, i.e. Internet bandwidth, redundancy of service, reliable equipment, business continuity planning in place, and adequate support? A power outage, for example, can quickly turn a normal situation into chaos.
  • Is browser based software responsive enough for your needs? Often the move from client-server to cloud based is not adequately understood and technical needs are underestimated.
  • This solution is excellent for the smaller practice with a limited budget and limited time to focus on the technical details.

athenaCollector would be well suited for smaller practices. It is well suited for larger practices, however some turn around time/system maintenance becomes more challenging. The product is well suited for a fast paced work environment. Ease of use of the system makes it easy to navigate and not get lost.

Cons

  • Unapplied credits could be handled better within the software. It would be very beneficial to have the option to automatically apply unapplied credits to patients accounts across the board with a click of a button.
  • Facilities need to be able to be tied directly to Provider Profiles to make reporting easier.
  • You must use Internet Explorer with ADP AdvancedMD. It would be better if you could use it with Chrome, Firefox, etc.
  • Needs the ability to use the product on a MAC.

  • Reporting for payer contract variances is weak for an organization as large as ours.
  • Custom report development can get pricey and take some time to develop.
  • A few of the spin-off products, such as the Dashboards, are not as customizable as our organization had hoped they would be.

Alternatives Considered

I love that ADP AdvancedMD is web-based and you can use it from anywhere you have internet access. Support is available 8am-8pm EST, so someone is always there to help if needed. I'm excited about the ICD-10 tools they are giving clients to assist with that process. They do regular software updates and listen to client feedback when deciding what updates to perform and the updates are no cost to the clients

The ease of use is far superior than any other similar billing systems product I have used. Navigation throughout the system is very self explanatory. Training time on this system is 1-3 days depending on users role (prior to additional on the job training within the system specific to the users role). Other systems have had software training for a week or more.
