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.

Practice Fusion

I think this is a great tool for a smaller practice, and I really like that it is not practice-specific. It seems like any type of doctor could use the site. I also think this is really great for remote workers because you are able to log on via the internet. I think that this tool would not be good for those looking to have a specific practice software. I've worked for other doctors alongside the one I used practice fusion for, and the other doctors used specialty specific software because of the customization to their job and charting.

Pros

  • Imaging and laboratory results were found in Allscripts Professional EHR.
  • Allscripts Professional EHR also provided emergency room history and physicals created by the emergency room physician.
  • Allscripts Professional EHR also provided a conduit to discuss review results with hospital nurse case managers.

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.

  • When uploading documents, I wish you could assign multiple documents to the "same settings"- for example, 5 documents uploaded to the same patient and the same doctor.
  • We honestly don't use Practice Fusion to its fullest functionality- we could use the communication and scheduling tools more often.
  • The "view" feature for documents doesn't always work and I'm unsure if this has to do with the document or their side of things- but this would be a great feature if it functioned properly.

Alternatives Considered

We selected Allscripts primarily for its exceptional reviews and affordability in the EHR marketplace. While Allscripts may not be the best EHR overall, it definitely meets the demands of the seting I practice in. Allscripts is an innovative software and we are pleased to have chosen this EHR for our group

It wasn't really a choice for me- I used the chiropractic specific when working for chiropractors and then used Practice Fusion while I was working for an alternative healthcare doctor. The doctors all had chosen the software before signing me on, there wasn't really an option for change. But for reasons I've stated before, I really enjoy Practice Fusion because of the online capabilities; it works for my function.
