ESO Solutions
For most EMS providers, ESO EHR is an ideal solution: It meets 95% of the needs for the typical EMS provider, provides an unparalleled ease of use for field personnel documenting patient care, and is easy to implement and administer. Large EMS systems should carefully consider the limitations of the underdeveloped quality management modules for QA/QI programs. Large or progressive EMS systems with an advanced data analytics/data science capability should be aware of the significant challenges and limitations ESO EHR poses for data use outside of the standard analytics reports.

The best scenario is a small non-profit clinic who needs a great EMR but cannot afford one like EPIC. I might also recommend this to colleagues who are starting a small business because I think PF would be a good, easy, and more affordable to get up and running. I think this EMR makes less sense in the setting of large academic institutions who need lots of easily manipulable data and a huge amount of support.

  • Document storage- You can upload documents and attach them to specific patients. As well as flag documents that need to be signed, and assign them to specific doctors.
  • Charting- Very detailed integration for charting.
  • Reporting- We really enjoy the reports we can pull from within the software.

Cons
ESO Solutions
  • The biggest gap is that doing QA/QI is not scalable or streamlined for a large provider. Managing an effective QA/QI program takes an incredible amount of labor and extra work.
  • The lack of customization and custom fields heavily limits use of ESO EHR to capture new data points for internal quality improvement or research projects.

  • Have Physician Assistant as a provider status.
  • Make the notes section of each patients account displays towards the top of page and not the bottom.

Alternatives Considered
ESO Solutions
ESO EHR won out due to ease of use for providers and for administration. Other vendors had greater ability to do data analysis, quality management, and customization but ultimately were significantly more difficult to learn, use, and administer.

NextGen is hard to use as far as medical records. Practice Fusion is user friendly. There is a great knowledge base for questions asked. Practice Fusion takes all the guess work out of the day.
