Well suited in the clinical setting although a little tedious. Not suited in many other places.

I can't imagine who it is appropriate for- unless you could care less if you get prescription refill requests from pharmacies, send portal messages to patients but they have no clue they have a new message to read. It's not ideal for large or small practices. Allow them to overbook your schedule with "new patients" that are on insurance plans you don't even accept for a 15 minute time interval...So if this the flow of your practice- this is the EHR for you. Otherwise, steer clear.

Pros
Oracle
  • Scheduling - I personally enjoy the ease of use with the solution. It also has a great "memory" as to patient rescheduling, no shows, etc. Being able to create multiple schedules to reflect different practitioners is such a major plus in this system.
  • Customization - I am able to create Super-bills, Global Periods, and Insurance Details pertinent to each patient and not have to RECREATE them every time like I had to in past systems.
  • EOB - an added bonus is the ability for the system to check EOB ahead of time. This is a HUGE time saving in an office!

  • Setting up a practice is straightforward and fast..within 24 hours.
  • Reports can be exported to Excel which is particularly helpful for forecasting trends.
  • Customization of billing codes makes Kareo functional for any type practice.

  • It does not auto balance accounts which would be helpful for us when patient's have a credit on one line but then a balance on another line.
  • The reports could be broken down a little more detailed

Everything within the system works smoothly, it’s just time-consuming and could be a bit more simplistic.

I personally would use this system over any other systems currently on the market. Athena has a nice product...however, it can be quite expensive and the colors are draining on the eyes. eClinical Works also has a system that is comparable, but the customization I found wasn't as easy as the Cerner product

Kareo is plain and simple. NextGen always says you get what you pay for, however, NextGen is expensive for anyone and Kareo does the same thing for a fraction of the cost. Kareo gives our time management back to the office personnel. Everything is user-friendly, which NextGen could be if it didn't have so many steps to complete on task.
