This is well suited for small business needs where are only a handful of users need an EHR to perform their usual tasks such as patient charting etc. Allscripts Sunrise EHR can be challenging to use sometimes because of the slow processing speed, which may test your patience and can lead to frustration.

PrimeSuite is great for a practice that has knowledgeable billing staff and a hands-on approach to billing; it is not ideal for those who need something more automated. You can customize PrimeSuite to prevent posting errors at charge entry and to catch some common mistakes. However, these must be set up by someone who knows what those errors are, and as payers change their requirements, they must be updated.

Cons
Altera Digital Health
  • Speed can be improved as I face lagging and freezing issues with it.
  • Reviewing notes from older visits is a little tricky as it requires a lot of clicks.
  • The size of the EHR screen is not well optimized with your computer screen, and hence the fonts look very small.

  • Speed, it continues getting slower and slower with each new upgrade.
  • Prime Suite does not use the screen space very effectively. On larger monitors with higher resolution, there is a LOT of wasted space.
  • Strange errors pop up that give little to no useful information about what the issue is, and the typical response from support is to uninstall and reinstall the programs on the workstation.

I liked PracticeAdmin for the way it showed key metrics and the simplicity of the software. However, you get what you pay for, and PrimeSuite has so much more functionality than PracticeAdmin ever did. I prefer the reporting, the options available in setup, just the overall customization you can do with PrimeSuite to that of other platforms.
