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.

PointClickCare is more suited for long-term care; less suited for independent or assisted living but they are making great strides. Reporting and dashboards could be more robust but by far this is better than any of the other products out there currently for long-term care. Financial Setup is cumbersome and could be more fluent or intuitive with better programming. UI is changing to a more modern look which is great. Training options could be better as not everyone does well with eLearning

Pros
Nextech Systems
  • Integration with our PM system was done in 2009 and they built the bridge between the two companies.
  • Drawings and testing images are uploaded easily.
  • The ability to keep track of reporting for CMS is very helpful.

  • PCC's census tracking is exceptional, allowing for Medicare's 100 days to be managed on the MDS and billing part.
  • Cash applications are simple to use. Any errors in payments can be investigated immediately to confirm whether the discrepancy is due to inaccurate write-offs, billing, and even census.
  • The month-end closing process is clean and efficient, allowing the billers to ensure all matters for the previous month have been satisfactorily addressed.

I have implemented PCC in over 100 buildings and have used it for almost 5 years. I can count maybe 2 times in 5 years when PCC downtime caused an issue for our facilities. I would say their availability rating exceeds a 10 compared to other software systems.

If by "overall support" you mean "customer service," only once were they unable to provide the assistance I needed--but it wasn't an important element of my job so no matter.

Have already stated. People learn differently and PCC needs to adapt to that model instead of all eLearning. Offer the client different learning packages.

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.

Each software that we had previously was best in KLAS at one time or another. However, they were individual software solutions instead of one solution for all of our business objectives. PCC has made it easier for our financial and clinical staff to have one tool that spans the employee lifecycle and that interacts with the different departments. Our facilities now have a real EMR instead of a parsed out product half on paper and half in the computer.

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.

  • Cannot answer that.
