    Works well for family med and peds primary care. Would not be well suited to wound healing/hyperbaric medicine practice in current configuration as the specific documentation requirements of wound management and hyperbaric treatments don't mesh well with the layout and forms that I observed.

    For an organization providing ABA service, there really is nobody else that even provides a remotely comparable service. It does have limitations and areas of the system that take more training or are less intuitive than one might hope, but their customer support representatives are generally really helpful and they are pretty quick to make updates to better serve their clients. They are incredible at finding efficient ways to reduce workflow, and while the product can be quite pricey, we have found that it has saved us at least 2 FT admin positions through the efficiency it has created and further frees up our clinicians so that they can focus in more on client outcomes. It's instrumental in our ability to scale our operations across locations. Even with its limitations, it's proven to be in a class of its own in the ABA world.

    Pros

    athenahealth

    • Quality programs - able to see what measures are outstanding for the patient
    • Reporting - able to report on multiple financial reports as well as clinical information
    • Standardization of clinical information - the system forces users within the same specialty to use the same templates (as a starting point), therefore it is easier to standardize protocols and treatments of care

    • CentralReach is easy to use once you get fully trained.
    • CentralReach helps us schedule our appointments, document our services, and quickly convert those sessions into charges to be billed to payors.
    • CentralReach is always evolving and implementing new features to keep up with client demands and the ever changing healthcare field.

    Cons

    athenahealth

    • The schedule needs to be improved. You should be able to see the schedule in a day, a week , in a month view and be able to schedule directly from the schedule.
    • It's difficult to name items because they are traditionally corrected very quickly

    • Scheduling module has its limitations

        Overall the system is good. Actually, this was supposed to be the universal EMR when it came out during the Bush administration.

        For a surgery center application, it is much better to use a system that is uniquely designed for surgery centers. Using Athena as a less than desirable work around has been a frustrating experience.

        The user functionality is intuitive. The customer service is beyond other products which allows you to be more efficient and effective at using the system. Also, entering programming which is the primary use is very easy and also intuitive. Many parts of the system are connected which auto populate reports for our therapist. On the business side, the scheduling to billing is very effective.

        • CR allows us to streamline across locations, share admin staff across locations and automate multiple processes that previously took administrative and clinical time.
        • CR actively seeks to continue to expand and refine their practices and products, and acquire related specialty services - a critical quality in a field that is evolving as quickly as ours is.
        • Using templates through CR and their scheduling and timesheet features ensures that we have an audit-proof system and that all sessions that we provide are in compliance with regulatory agencies for reimbursement.
