Altera Digital Health
10 years ago the product was a good product, owned by McKesson and built on newer code. Over the years it has failed to keep up with the rapidly changing healthcare changes and struggled to fix those problems it created with new code. We had to recently move to Epic as a Community Connect client to keep up with all the changes as Paragon couldn't.

Alternatives Considered
Altera Digital Health
We have recently moved to Epic as our EMR. Paragon isn't as user-friendly nor does it keep up with HealthCare standards. Paragon upgrades were very long and caused downtime, while Epic upgrades are a lot faster.
