AdvancedPM (formerly ADP AdvancedMD)

If you want peace of mind knowing the reliability of the product and helpfulness of those behind the scenes in troubleshooting and tech support, this is a product worth having. The system processes fast. The vast amount of reports available meets every financial need in my book. Easy to learn

PowerWorks Practice Management

It is great for a practice up to 15-20 physicians. It might be slightly expensivee for a small rural 1 doc practice, but the money accumulated through EOB checking is worth the expense in my eyes

Pros

  • Detailed Aging reports very easy to follow and helpful in our business.
  • Navigation around appointment scheduler is excellent.
  • Creating custom templates with AMD convenient.
  • Best part--when system is slow, I can instantly send feedback on it, and see results soon!

  • Scheduling - I personally enjoy the ease of use with the solution. It also has a great "memory" as to patient rescheduling, no shows, etc. Being able to create multiple schedules to reflect different practitioners is such a major plus in this system.
  • Customization - I am able to create Super-bills, Global Periods, and Insurance Details pertinent to each patient and not have to RECREATE them every time like I had to in past systems.
  • EOB - an added bonus is the ability for the system to check EOB ahead of time. This is a HUGE time saving in an office!

Cons

  • Just recently we had an incident in which none of our employees could access the training.advancemd.com training materials. After extensive trouble shooting it was determined the issue was not with the local network, PC configuration, or firewalling. The AdvanceMD support personnel were not empowered to escalate this case as it should have been. Ultimately a correction in the server configuration for the training materials cleared up the issue, but not with assistance from Tier 1 support personnel.
  • Integration with the scanners can be problematic and has been a headache. Even with the Fujitsu scanners, the best in the business, we had challenges and found that some of the Tier 1 support staff were not trained or did not have access to the necessary documentation to fix the issue. The issues were eventually resolved but not without time lost in the process.

  • The interface with the EMR. The two are not connected and you have to toggle between the two screens...very frustrating.
  • Sometimes the system can be a tad slow...when running a speed test, it shows our speed is UTD.

Alternatives Considered

ADP AMD is much easier to learn and navigate than most all of the systems I have worked with, including Greenway and Centricity. The only thing I liked better in Centricity was the ability to run more customized reports, but overall, I would choose AMD any day over those two.

I personally would use this system over any other systems currently on the market. Athena has a nice product...however, it can be quite expensive and the colors are draining on the eyes. eClinical Works also has a system that is comparable, but the customization I found wasn't as easy as the Cerner product

Return on Investment

  • Increased clean claims processing
  • Faster revenue received back first round filing
  • Easier to manage no-show and cancellations to streamline scheduling

  • PowerWorks Practice Manangement has improved my practice by capturing/checking claims that once might have slipped through the cracks.
  • At first, it can be an adjustment, as with any new system and users that were familiar with other systems.
