I think [eMDs Plus (formerly McKesson)] would do better with people who are familiar with computers. It isn't terribly intuitive so there's that but also these products don't provide the kind of training that would assist novice computer users. But, other than that, it's a good, solid product that provides everything a practice would need.

  • Answering drug information questions (MDs questions that may need further review and response)
  • Updating lecture material (ensuring upToDate data)
  • Patient education utility (ensuring appropriate and up to date patient information)
  • Not useful for a comprehensive clinical review e.g. writing a paper, but it is not designed for that function

UpToDate provides evidence-based, currently relevant medical information in an easy and clear method. The software has directly helped me stay up to date in medical treatments and new information on etiology of diseases. This information has directly and positively improved my care and treatments for various musculoskeletal conditions and diseases.

Aprima is a much newer application with features the 1st generation of EHRs did not have. But, I do not necessarily find it easier to use. It has a lot of "moving parts" so to speak and isn't really intuitive. I've used others than I found easier to learn and use.

UpToDate offers a much more comprehensive tool when compared with Epocrates. Although both provide good drug references UpToDate goes far beyond the Epocrates tool in terms of clinical disease diagnostic data.
