Likelihood to Recommend

Allscripts Professional EHR

Some of the key questions include functionality of the EHR in today's electronic marketplace. Also customer support ratings are important due to many ongoing difficulties previously experienced with older EHRs. Allscripts is well suited to the outpatient setting where many preformed templates provide a comprehensive overview of patients. Additionally, Allscripts' link with the imaging portal PACS is second to none.

Aprima

Aprima is particularly well suited for the primary care provider, however, Aprima has developed excellent content for most specialty care offices as well. Specifically, OB/GYN, Orthopedics and Internal Medicine and its sub-specialties such as Gastroenterology and Cardiology can be easily managed with Aprima.Perhaps Aprima's greatest strength is its organization's commitment to content development. Look for greater and greater things from Aprima!
