Cerner Practice Management (PowerWorks)

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

To start, Nextgen PM is NOT well-suited for companies who are looking for a could-based product—you will be required to house this software on your own server (this will force that company to maintain their own infrastructure). The solution is great for a company looking for a PM/EHR combo that communicates well with each other. The two modules are owned by the same company and does not require a costly API/bridge to be built between the two programs.

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!

  • Ability to interface with Question Diagnostics for certain laboratory tests.
  • Ability to send and receive tasks to other user(s) on the system as well as send future tasks and reminders to yourself.

Cons

Cerner Practice Management (PowerWorks)

  • Only seems applicable for small organizations.

NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

  • The software requires annoying/disruptive updates.
  • The software is housed on our own server. We have found that cloud-based solutions are much more convenient.
  • At times, the system is a bit "slow."
  • The canned reporting/BI tool is not as malleable as many of the other solutions we have used and/or trialed.
  • We were able to achieve cost-savings through some other systems.

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

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

NextGen was more scattered and less streamlined than either Allscripts or EPIC

  • Nextgen did a good job of transitioning our practice away from paper health records.
  • I believe that the Return on Investment would have been much higher had we gone straight to a cloud-based tool.
  • By getting our feet wet with Nextgen, we have a pretty good understanding of Practice Management software. In other words, we could plug and play with most systems on the market.
