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.

Small clinics (less that 10 providers) would benefit from this product

Pros

athenaClinicals

  • 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

PulseEHR

  • The scheduling and template system
  • Reporting
  • Making the system unique to users
Jessica Taddicken | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

athenaClinicals

  • 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
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

PulseEHR

  • Up to date use of the Documentation side of the EHR
  • The patient portal side of the EHR needs to be fully implemented
  • After updates we have issues or errors.

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.
