CIS Configurator

I like it when we are looking to see which patient is on which prescriptions and when a note is needed to be sent to the doctor we can mark it urgent. Sometimes this backfires and the note can be overlooked and an urgent message can be sitting in a file for a while.

VT is fabulous to proposal writing as it created for that. It can also be used for ANY type of persuasive or technical writing. If you can write it, VT can help to make the writing better. BUT!!! if you are writing news articles or descriptive writing, this is NOT the software for you. VT works to eliminate fluff, ambiguous words, exaggerations, run-on sentences, improper grammar, misspelled words, sentence fragments, etc. VT also works to eliminate passive writing. As with any software, use it for what it was created - and find something else for the rest.

Pros

CIS Configurator

  • Confidentiality with health records
  • Communications between work and the doctors
  • Areas to send prescriptions

  • Acronym finder - the best acronym finder I have used! This creates an Excel spreadsheet with the acronyms and their definitions in an alphabetically sorted worksheet ... AND this worksheet includes actual sentences from the document showing how and where the acronym was used.
  • Compare documents - WOW! what a wonderful update! You get an Excel worksheet with the 2 compared documents side-by-side showing differences in red and statements with no changes in blue.
  • Starter compliance matrix (SCM) - again, one of the best SCM-creators I have used. This choice is quick, concise, and the resulting Excel worksheet is easy to manipulate and change.

Cons

CIS Configurator

  • Sometimes the site is down for a period of time and this disrupts the workflow
  • Pulling up multiple patients can sometimes get confusing

  • Dictionaries - I would like to see more "canned" dictionaries. We create our own, but I know that VT has more that they can supply, giving us more quick turnaround changes (versus always having to start from scratch).

I have not used many products but I am very fond of CIS

We reviewed many other products but found all of them did not have the extent of tasks that VT had. These searches were over 5 years ago and many of the products reviewed are no longer available. In addition, some software still in existence have merit, just not to the extent we need. I do not want to give anyone a bad rating just because we did not choose them. Again, choose the right software for the right job!

Return on Investment

CIS Configurator

  • We are able to work faster and bring in more clients with an electronic system

  • We reduced proposal writing time and output. By reducing time, we gained time for work in other areas of proposal handling. I used to need 3-5 DAYS to create an acronym list. Now, with VT, I do the same work in 1-2 hours!
  • VT is for proposal WRITING and not for proposal HANDLING. Our proposal managers and coordinators do the handling part.
