Chose AdvancedPM, by AdvancedMD
AdvancedMD is a much more user-friendly interface and can be customized much easier without the need for in-house developers. I do think NextGen is more targeted to enterprise level clients as the standard reporting is more in tune with accrual accounting and allows for …
Chose AdvancedPM, by AdvancedMD
AdvancedMD is cloud-based. Kareo PM was cloud-based, but NextGen was not. The ability to reduce in-house infrastructure has been great. When we were using NextGen, it was much easier to reconcile our bank account to the payments posted in the PM software. AdvancedMD's access to …

Chose NextGen® Practice Management Solutions
We feel that Nextgen does not stack up very well against the cloud-based software on the market. Housing the underlying tables on your own hardware requires COSTLY man hours. We are in the business of providing health care services to patients, not database administration. …

AdvancedMD
It would be well suited for an initial user. If you are starting a practice and have nothing in place, it might be great. However, if you are a current EMR user of a different platform and have more than a hundred patients; don’t waste your time. This is a hands-off company that, in my opinion, will do nothing to support your efforts. We have a practice of 11,000 patients and would have had to hire 2 FTE’s to print all the patient data and upload it individually.

To start, Nextgen PM is NOT well-suited for companies who are looking for a could-based product—you will be required to house this software on your own server (this will force that company to maintain their own infrastructure). The solution is great for a company looking for a PM/EHR combo that communicates well with each other. The two modules are owned by the same company and does not require a costly API/bridge to be built between the two programs.

Pros
AdvancedMD
  • They provide access to their underlying tables via Open Database Connection (ODBC). This streamlines business intelligence processes greatly.
  • The "canned"/"stock" business intelligence tool (Advanced Insight) is very useful.
  • Our dedicated customer support representative (Breah Teed) has exceeded our expectations.

NextGen Healthcare
  • Ability to save favorite phrases and templates to make charting more efficient for providers.
  • Ability to interface with Question Diagnostics for certain laboratory tests.
  • Ability to send and receive tasks to other user(s) on the system as well as send future tasks and reminders to yourself.

Cons
AdvancedMD
  • Adding and Deleting provider columns complicated.
  • Would have loved to have one point of contact at all times and have that person answer on the third ring (see, this is me really reaching--because as far as my job functions were concerned, the product was absolutely fantastic. I have no complaints).
  • Working electronic insurance error reports in the system was a nightmare.

NextGen Healthcare
  • The software requires annoying/disruptive updates.
  • The software is housed on our own server. We have found that cloud-based solutions are much more convenient.
  • At times, the system is a bit "slow."
  • The canned reporting/BI tool is not as malleable as many of the other solutions we have used and/or trialed.
  • We were able to achieve cost-savings through some other systems.

I've only reached out a couple of times and after being bounced around a few times I simply asked for our internal team to look into the particular question I had. I believe they had some turnover at the time but my experience wasn't great.

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.

Return on Investment
AdvancedMD
  • We are paying over 5K for absolutely nothing.
  • We believe this company does not concern itself with the end-user.
  • We identified a large lack of ethics in the organization.

  • Nextgen did a good job of transitioning our practice away from paper health records.
  • I believe that the Return on Investment would have been much higher had we gone straight to a cloud-based tool.
  • By getting our feet wet with Nextgen, we have a pretty good understanding of Practice Management software. In other words, we could plug and play with most systems on the market.
