Athena is a well-suited electronic medical record system for those professionals that work in a medical center, hospital, clinic, and/or outpatient clinic that need to provide frequent and accurate documentation for insurance providers and all other members of the care team. It might be less appropriate for a small agency.

I'd highly recommend LigoLab for any lab environment looking to raise the efficiency of their daily workflow processes. A lot of other platforms require a bit of legwork to fit into a given workflow, but LigoLab is robust and adaptable with ample customer support that will allow you to find the most optimal solution to any issues you're facing. I would recommend it to any smaller lab focusing on anatomic pathology/molecular testing.
Read full review Pros 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.

Read full review Cons Statements print only current open accounts, would be nice to print a total statement for patients so they can see if payments are split between open and closed/zeroed out accounts Ability to create custom reports Read full review Further customizability of certain core sections to display more information would be useful. There are some times when my users would like to have certain features or implementations available, but due to the restrictive nature of core functionality, these aren't easily configured or possible at times. Speed of platform. Due to how the program is implemented, booting it up can take some time on the user end though it is fine once someone enters the LIS environment. Ideally, we'd have faster load times for the program as that is the biggest complaint I receive from our doctors who use multiple systems on a daily basis. Read full review Alternatives Considered
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

Read full review Since we've implemented the platform we've been able to provide our services to more clients by presenting them with a highly functional reporting platform that will efficiently distribute finalized reports to them directly. The ease of access on the platform has made our workflows more efficient and allowed us to reduce turnaround time from receipt of a specimen to final report release.
