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!

Pros

Aprima

  • Ease of use. End users adapt quickly to the format and functionality of Aprima.
  • Immunization documentation. This often-time cumbersome process is streamlined in Aprima, utilizing defaults to reduce the time needed to fully document immunizations.
  • Efficient billing tools. Aprima is a powerful billing engine that provides scrubbing tools to ensure clean claims.
  • As a vendor, Aprima listens. They respond quickly to the voice of their clients, providing upgrades that truly enhance the usability of their product. This is the primary reason they have seen such phenomenal growth.
  • Upgrades are free. This is highly unusual among healthcare software vendors!

Centricity EMR

  • One of the best things about Centricity is it is flexible. We are able to add a data point behind a term (CPS calls this an observation term) and track any data needed. These observation terms also allow us to pull information forward and display information needed to make a good decision or used to decrease errors. For example in our history forms given to the patients one of the questions is side of injury. This affected side displays on our EMR forms which helps providers and prevents mistakes.
  • CPS integrates with other programs. We are paperless and use DocuSign to send each patient their history, ROS and all new paperwork. This allows us to import the history into the forms and has saved us from adding extra staff (FTEs) to room and take history. The history form can be completed at home or in the waiting room. Each section has a observation term behind it and allows it to be placed into the note at the correct section. Since we have a fully integrated product we do not have to have another program to enter or transfer our charges from the EMR to the PM side of the program.
  • Our notes look great! We did a lot of customization which gave us the detail and look we wanted. It seems like a lot of work at first, but the outcome has so much efficacy. We increased our providers without having to increase our staffing and it is due to he efficiencies we gained by using the EMR.
  • One other note, Centricity is flexible but that means it is complicated. You can not have flexibility without it be complicated don't let that stop you the end results can be great.
