I think it is great in any case where you need it for scheduling but especially for medical scheduling. It allows for commenting and enough room to type in specific diagnosis etc. It also allows for different appointment types and lengths depending on the appointment that the client needs. It allows for a lot of leeway and a lot of room for movement within the own company.

I think [eMDs Plus (formerly McKesson)] would do better with people who are familiar with computers. It isn't terribly intuitive so there's that but also these products don't provide the kind of training that would assist novice computer users. But, other than that, it's a good, solid product that provides everything a practice would need.

Pros

athenaIDX (formerly Centricity Practice Solution from GE Healthcare)

  • One of the best things about Centricity is it is flexible. We are able to add a data point behind a term (CPS calls this an observation term) and track any data needed. These observation terms also allow us to pull information forward and display information needed to make a good decision or used to decrease errors. For example in our history forms given to the patients one of the questions is side of injury. This affected side displays on our EMR forms which helps providers and prevents mistakes.
  • CPS integrates with other programs. We are paperless and use DocuSign to send each patient their history, ROS and all new paperwork. This allows us to import the history into the forms and has saved us from adding extra staff (FTEs) to room and take history. The history form can be completed at home or in the waiting room. Each section has a observation term behind it and allows it to be placed into the note at the correct section. Since we have a fully integrated product we do not have to have another program to enter or transfer our charges from the EMR to the PM side of the program.
  • Our notes look great! We did a lot of customization which gave us the detail and look we wanted. It seems like a lot of work at first, but the outcome has so much efficacy. We increased our providers without having to increase our staffing and it is due to he efficiencies we gained by using the EMR.
  • One other note, Centricity is flexible but that means it is complicated. You can not have flexibility without it be complicated don't let that stop you the end results can be great.

During my medical rotations I have used multiple products similar to Centricity, but I found Centricity to be one of the easiest to use and one of the easiest systems to learn

I have not used anything before this as I am new to the practice, so I am unsure. I would recommend these to my colleagues and anyone who asked for a recommendation. I also think it is good for the older generation who aren't great at computers because it is easy to use.

  • We receive penalty fees for multiple missed appointments tracked by the system.
