athenaCollector would be well suited for smaller practices. It is well suited for larger practices, however some turn around time/system maintenance becomes more challenging. The product is well suited for a fast paced work environment. Ease of use of the system makes it easy to navigate and not get lost.

The best scenario [is] that it has [a] particular object which can directly store the records of the client [who] has purchased the policy and practitioner details with [their] expertise. The users can directly book the appointment using LWC or Aura components which can be exposed on websites. The object will be linked with each other [using] a lookup relation which creates a complete framework to handle the cases and details of the clients, [their] policies, and other details as well. Booking or finding a practitioner can be done with the [Salesforce] Health Cloud app where it can use [your] current location and provide details of [available] nearby doctors. Health Cloud supports live agent as well where a user can get the details on his insurance policy and get other help if he need from the chat option with live agent.

  • [There] are particular objects such as person accounts which [are] linked with [health care company accounts if they have a policy].
  • We have flows and pages where a user or client can book [their] appointment with a practitioner and get instant help by raising a case or request for [an] appointment.
  • [Salesforce] Health Cloud keeps all the records of clients and practitioners and can link them when and where ever needed.
  • Objects in the managed package have [a] standard field which gives a perfect solution with out-of-the-box functionality without creating such a model or structure.
  • We can raise cases or requests and [use] automation tools like flows [so] the case will be assigned to [a] practitioner or the queue of the user.

Cons
athenahealth
  • Reporting for payer contract variances is weak for an organization as large as ours.
  • Custom report development can get pricey and take some time to develop.
  • A few of the spin-off products, such as the Dashboards, are not as customizable as our organization had hoped they would be.

  • They can have standard pages or components which can directly be used to book or record the appointment with the practitioner.
  • [I believe] there is nothing more that [Salesforce] Health Cloud can improve as already everything comes under automation, from [booking] to service issues, everything is automated.

The ease of use is far superior than any other similar billing systems product I have used. Navigation throughout the system is very self explanatory. Training time on this system is 1-3 days depending on users role (prior to additional on the job training within the system specific to the users role). Other systems have had software training for a week or more.

When it comes to Health Cloud in other CRM we have to create the related object and fields and we have to set [up] a complete architecture for the healthcare business to run over the CRM. But here Salesforce is proving a managed package, which is Health Cloud, has the framework already built we just [have to] use the standard functionality and get our task with automation done. This has definitely reduced the effort of developers as well as the agents who are working on the Health Cloud. [Even] a person with very little coding skill can use this CRM and get [their] task cases, etc. automated and [the] perfect solution can be built with low efforts.

  • [The] best part is that it is cloud-based technology where data and records will always be ready for use and there is minimal chance of losing the data.
  • It has reduced the efforts of the agents to book appointments or find the right practitioner which saves time [for] both the agent as well as the client.
  • There are automation tools [that] are used to send emails for reminders of policies.
  • Issues of people can be handled when a case is created and it gets assigned to a user or queue of users to get the issue resolved asap.
