Cons

  • Upgrades
  • Support
  • Timely Responses to support requests.

  • Some of the features have not yet been implemented and they are listed in the forum as "coming soon" but dated over a year ago. We have been suggesting an alert or message feature that does not become part of the chart for over a year. This would be a way for staff to communicate important information to each other.
  • Update 2017: Almost 3 years later, this is still listed as "coming soon". Other EHR's that I have used have a feature such as an exclamation mark that alert every provider working with a patient that there is important information pertinent to their care.
  • It gets "hung up" in the afternoons at times and becomes very slow.

We always get a return call within the time stated. There are many available topics on the forum and it is often easy to find the issue you are seeking more information on.When we have tried the live chat feature we have been satisfied with the timeliness and response.

Alternatives Considered

Centricity is much more difficult to get support for in my experience.
Stephen Adams profile photo
Practice fusion is much more user friendly than the other programs that we have used. The more costly EMR's were definitely no better and the ones we have used were not nearly as easy to use. I would highly recommend practice fusion over Athena or Allscripts.
