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

To date, TotalMD EHR is being used in many specialties, including chiropractic, general surgery, home healthcare, mental health, internal medicine, family practice, plastic surgery, OB/GYN and alternative medicine. Because the system is available as both server-based (in-house system) or cloud-based, each practice may choose which option may better suit the way they care for patients, based on portability needs.

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!

  • Since TotalMD EHR is a completely integrated system with its TotalMD Practice Management and Patient Billing counterpart, the chance of data entry error across systems is minimized. Provider assessments translate directly to billing data, thus decreasing claim rejections, dramatically.
  • Templates are quickly and easily customized by the provider, for any and all specialties, based on the way the provider works as opposed to the way programmers decide.
  • Powerful tracking system allows providers to follow lab orders, medications, referral information and more, which enhances the ability to provide better care.

Cons

  • Only seems applicable for small organizations.

  • Although third-party applications are available for smartphone access to certain information, we are hoping to see such applications developed directly by TotalMD, to continue with their all-in-one approach, which minimizes any chance of data error.
  • Third-party biometric devices (fingerprint, retinal scan, etc.) can be utilized with the HL7 import capabilities of TotalMD. However, we would like to see such scanning devices created specifically for TotalMD. By doing so, the installation, configuration and support would be handled by one company, rather than a third party.

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

[We assessed] bringing on another product to our lineup (previously we were top national resellers of Medisoft and AltaPoint). However, TotalMD quickly became our flagship product, as it has proven to have the lowest maintenance/support requirements, the easiest to learn for both practitioners as well as support personnel and is the most affordable (most bang-for-the-buck) for our clients. Supporting over a thousand clients throughout the US, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico for the past 23 years, we always hold our clients' best interests in mind.

  • Since TotalMD is one of the few EHR systems on the market today, that does not have a required annual (and usually very pricey) support agreement, its fast user implementation time requirement and the many error cross-checking systems, the ROI for most practices, can be seen in a few months.
  • Data conversion from several software systems (Medisoft, AltaPoint, Lytec and Visionary) are typically included at no cost, saving many practices thousands of dollars when they switch from a lesser product. The technical team at TotalMD can convert data from most any other product at very reasonable rates.
