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

  • 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!

  • Front-Desk - Easy at a glance daily payment postings to front desk staff can see their production quickly. Able to take payments easily. Add new patients quickly. See and organize the provider schedule easily. Automated phone call appointment reminders was valuable.
  • Clinic - Access of old notes was easy and template structure was good
  • Billing - Easily add notes to claims to track what billings was doing. All aspects of patient receivables were fairly simple and easy.
  • Administration/Analytics - Not much good to say here.

I think it can be intimidating at first but once you begin navigating and learning the modules, it becomes less difficult to perform charting and operational processes.

It's very important to limit your schedule during the weeks after go live but it is equally important to have a resource that is the lead at the practice that ensures that milestones are met leading up to the go-live date. Someone must be the point person at the practice otherwise milestones will be missed and the implementation will run into problems.

Had limited experience with Cerner but found it harder to navigate as an ambulatory medicine EMR.

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic
  • I will just share one area that our organization saw the ROI in a very short time period. That is the elimination of a dictation service for most of our specialty group doctors when we introducec Dragon Medical. This functionality brought a tangible benefit and a significant ROI in a short time period.
