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.

ChartLogic is great for a practice that wants an EMR but doesn't want/need all the bells and whistles of a giant like Epic. It allows each individual doctor to create their own templates, smart fields and ways of seeing their messages, encounters etc so that while you have one EMR system each doctor can make it their own. Little to no computer experience or training needed to make things work easily.

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

  • Simple and elegant interface.
  • Simultaneous past and present records view.

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

  • Seems to usually be one extra unneeded "ok" button you have to click to make things save
  • Wish it had more reporting options

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.

Haven't used many others but out of the ones I have used, it's the best and I definitely recommend it.
