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.

UpToDate

UpToDate is extremely well suited for quick information. I find the software to be extremely helpful for a quick recap on a condition or disease. If I'm interested in discovering if evidence-based research supports a new treatment or a different provider for a better outcome, I can quickly and efficiently find this information.

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

  • List relevant information on various diseases and conditions.
  • Summarize pertinent information.
  • Easy navigation across information and subjects.

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

  • User-interface could be smoother.
  • Include more conditions and diseases.
  • Include more alternative treatment methods.

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

UpToDate provides evidence-based, currently relevant medical information in an easy and clear method. The software has directly helped me stay up to date in medical treatments and new information on etiology of diseases. This information has directly and positively improved my care and treatments for various musculoskeletal conditions and diseases.

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.
