Allscripts Practice Management

Although the EHR software industry is still developing, Allscripts has proven to be better than most.

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

  • Patient Mangement
  • Appointment management
  • EHR
Stephen Adams profile photo
  • 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

  • Upgrades
  • Support
  • Timely Responses to support requests.
Stephen Adams profile photo
  • 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

Centricity is much more difficult to get support for in my experience.
Stephen Adams profile photo
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

  • Good EHR compared to alternatives.
  • Good PM compared to alternatives.
  • Compliant.
Stephen Adams profile photo
  • 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.
