I have and will continue to recommend MDI (a Nextech EMR system) to other ophthalmology/retina practices through the AAOE etalk. MDI was developed by an ophthalmologist specific for ophthalmologists and the specific needs they have which makes it very easy to use. Uploading the images is easy. We are also able to share information with other practices on the system.

Smaller doctor or dental offices would be fine using Office Ally for patient visits and appointments; it's easy to use and learn, and I'm able to handle most needs with it. For a larger practice, there are better, more technologically advanced software products that would offer more streamlined and professional statements, schedules, and accounting needs.

Office Ally
  • There needs to be a way to print patient visit summaries for a date range vs printing one summary for each appointment, one at a time.
  • It would be helpful if the top row of the calendar, showing doctors/practitioners names, would remain on the screen when scrolling to the end of the day. Appointments get scheduled under the wrong doctor at times because the names disappear and columns get confused.
  • There should be a way to view/print/download what has been paid, per patient, to the office in one place vs searching for payments under the Accounting Tab and payments tracked under Patient visits.

I haven't had to call too many times to get help with Office Ally but when I have had to call, I haven't always had the best customer service. It seems that I am bugging the person I reach when I call for technical support because I'm usually reminded that there are videos to watch for technical support help. On the flip side, there have been times that I called for help and was treated how you assume you'll be treated when you call for help - with grace, dignity, professionalism, and respect.

CUSTOMER SERVICE is above par where NexGen had what we called no-customer service. Ease of use without having the make our own templates constantly. Upgrades are seamless and no added cost.

I used to use Best Notes. Best Notes was difficult to navigate and very inflexible. We used it in the early time of EHR/EMR, so that the software was not very useful. When I changed to Office Ally, we are so delighted to change it because again it is easily to navigate the software. There is minimum of learning curve than other software.

Return on Investment
Nextech Systems
  • Being able to fax notes immediately to referring doctors and PCPs is very important. It saves on time and paper/toner not having to print out and then fax.
  • Not having to develop and/or print out the pictures/FAs and having them upload immediately so doctor can treat at the same visit.
