Cerner Practice Management (PowerWorks)

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

NextGen Healthcare EHR

NextGen Healthcare Clinical Care Solutions works to get your practice or hospital EMR compliant. It is very difficult to get anything done quickly-- there are so many clicks required to perform simple tasks and when you are patient-facing it makes you look a little silly. It is difficult to input information quickly into the system and patient information does not always upload from their portal. Patients do like that they are able to look up their own records and send messages through this system. It is well suited for a practice that only wants one program to do it all-- billing, scheduling, and the actual practicing. It is, however, very difficult to learn as you need to learn how to trick the system in many cases.

Pros

Cerner Practice Management (PowerWorks)

  • 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!

  • User-friendly graphical user interface and ease of user enrollment.

Cons

  • Only seems applicable for small organizations.

NextGen Healthcare EHR

  • I think there's still room for fuller integration of the multiple suites that they offer.
  • Optimizing certain templates to provide a more automated feel

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

Pages load quickly and reports are uploaded quickly. It just takes far too many clicks to get anything complete in this program. If a patient wants to pay for something after we have checked them out of their appointment, or wants to make an appointment it is not efficient. In a busy practice like ours efficiency is key and we need to keep the flow going

Alternatives Considered

Cerner Practice Management (PowerWorks)

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

I feel like with NextGen we have a well-rounded amount of things that we can do. When we train new hires on how to use this system, it helps that the system is very user-friendly and simple enough to for those to catch on without extensive amounts of training.
