Allscripts Professional EHR

Allscripts is, honestly, the only EHR system that works. The credentialing problem I mentioned earlier truly IS infrequent, and not a deal breaker.

It is great in a hospital setting where we work because everything is at your fingertips and we have hundreds of files that need to be organized so we need a place that can hold all of our information in a secure area. I don't think it would be as helpful if we had a smaller practice or everything was filed by paper.

Cons

  • Allscripts could use improvement with stability. Once in awhile, the software would freeze upon loading images saved from radiology or lab reports. It frequently had trouble with login credentials.
  • Improve the clarity of scanned images in patient's EHR.
  • Conversability with other platforms, like Cerner, Epic, and McKesson.
  • Improve the way InterQual loads review platform as well as emailing hospital case manager feature.

  • Sometimes it can lag and have a slow speed when we have multiple users on it
  • Sometimes when I am trying to use it for nutrition purposes it does not fit all of my needs and there are not areas where I can store information in regards to dietary information
  • It is hard to explain when you do not have the program right in from of you such as when trying to do work over the phone. Which happens on occasion when we have bad weather, people working from home etc.

Alternatives Considered

It was already in use when I was hired. I have mostly figured it out just messing around with it in my earlier spare time.

I have not used anything before this as I am new to the practice, so I am unsure. I would recommend these to my colleagues and anyone who asked for a recommendation. I also think it is good for the older generation who aren't great at computers because it is easy to use.
