Good software for a family practice

2017-06-10

Probably a great product if we had a different kind of practice

Pros

Like the templates and letters, low cost as long as we keep the basic plan, practice management and meaningful use: we don't use them though

Cons

Not appropriate for a college health clinic, scheduler is limited, good price disappears when you start adding necessary features

An EMR that can't be beat

2012-03-21

Most of the negative things you hear about EMR's you do not hear from the great majority of Amazing Charts users.

Pros

Ease of use, superior pricing, excellent support, simplicity, excellent functionality especially for the price, makes achieving Meaningful Use incentives easy (we got ours!)

Cons

Does not have a practice management module.

I very simple

2017-04-18

Amazing Charts is the top rated EHR according to multiple user satisfaction surveys and is affordable, easy to use, and FREE to try.

Pros

We did a 30 day free trial period with Amazing Charts while searching for a new EMR system last year.

Cons

The problem is that any functionality you need to use (Like patient portal, electronic labs requests, e-prescriptions) is an additional cost to your subscription.

Terrible for MIPPS

2018-03-29

Pros

Prescription management overall is good though interactions and warnings based on heath problems that make a med contraindicated are pretty poor.

Cons

With the help of a government contractor, I still wasn't able to get the reporting submitted despite working on it for two months!!!

Worst Software I have ever used or been exposed to...

2017-05-16

Don't even consider using the billing portion, doesn't link to the charting portion.

Cons

Bad support, don't call in the off hours, they have to go home, the are located in Rhode Island, so will schedule calls according to their time.

Almost everything you need on one screen!

2018-01-13

This my 3rd EMR and my favorite. With supervision of Nurse Practitioners in other locations I've seen other EHR's and this one is the best. The worst are the ones with nothing but clicks and drop-down menus or just being able to show one screen at a time (one I use limits the progress note to the whole screen, can't even see the med list). Support is good despite some criticism. I primarily use the online chat. It's rare that I can't get someone on chat who can walk me through it or take control of the PC and fix it. I use a local server and it's fine, can't afford to lose my EMR if the internet goes down. Cloud based is available.

Pros

Make your own templates easily from any screen.

Cons

NewCrops electronic prescribing of controlled substance is cumbersome due to Verizon but they are discontinuing at the end of February and the new vendor Exostar is supposed to be better and reduced clicks.

Response from Amazing Charts


Dr. Nana, we are sorry you feel that costs have increased, but the reality is that Amazing Charts is one the most affordable EHR solutions.

We must correct a few inaccuracies. A few of the costs you describe are for extra functionality, which you chose to add. The Patient Portal required for MU is included; you are paying for a more robust portal from Updox. eRx is included; any costs for EPCS are paid to a third party. All EHR vendors charge fees for interfaces, and our costs are competitive. There is a one-time fee of $750 per interface (often covered by the lab), and annual maintenance of $150 per interface, with discounts for multiple interfaces,

You paid $1,200 once for a lifetime license. You pay $1,195 annually for service, support, and upgrades. An NP is a level-one provider if they sign-off charts and prescribe.

Dr. Nana, we encourage you to shop around and compare prices for everything you get today. Amazing Charts will be your most affordable choice.

Have used Amazing Charts for 7 years in my solo practice. Am now on the cloud which is a much easier format than office based server.

2018-02-07

I dont use this for billing or scheduling , because I am in a collaborative group , sharing front desk services.

Pros

Also like the reminder feature,

Cons

I dont like the graphic format/ font is UGLY, needs an update. Would prefer an integrated fax, not UPDOX.

Took some time to learn the system, but great once established!

2018-07-29

Would definitely recommend this program! Just be prepared for the transition process.

Pros

I imagine the transition to paperless charts would have likely been hard regardless of the program, but amazingcharts made it easy.

Cons

Learning curb was challenging for some employees, but once everyone learned the system, employees reported that it was easier.

Version 9.3.1 has many updates

2017-02-01

I have been very impressed by the ease of use, ease of learning, and functionality of Amazing Charts. I have needed extremely little tech support over the last 2 years, and we can do our own upgrades without their help.

Pros

Ease of use, easy to learn, no training required.

Cons

As with all EHRs, no standardization was in place before the product was designed, so there is the little interface with larger systems.

Overall good experience with a beginning EHR

2017-06-05

We would still be using it if we had not been accepted to do CPC+ which required up to date reporting that AC didn't have right now.

Pros

The ability to get in and out of scheduling to clinical was very helpful.

Cons

For government reporting, so as good as I would like.

Amazing Charts is pretty good..........NO IT'S AMAZING !!!

2016-11-18

I've used every version of Amazing charts since version 3.1 (starting 2008).

Pros

Progress notes that i can actually see all the fields on ONE SCREEN unlike most other products that require tons of tabbing. Reports that print out just like the progress notes we learned in medical school (unlike the 5-7 page reports printed from those other over-priced clunky programs like Centricity).

Cons

Sorry I'm a loyal A.C. user since 2008. I don't have anything negative to say about the software or the company.

It is a very nice program that compacts all information in a chart very easily.

2018-03-23

The ease of scheduling appointments - and it saves time.

Pros

The ability to color code appointments types for scheduling. The verification of appointments is wonderful, also.

Cons

The messages portion. It would be nice if you could switch screens and have the message stay intact until you are finished sending.

The Best EHR for Small Medical Practices

2017-02-26

I installed Amazing Charts on one of the desktop computers over one weekend in 2007 and started using it on Monday without any need for training from anyone.

Pros

Ease of use, excellent customer service, polite and courteous customer service reps, looks and feels like a standard paper chart, simple user intuitive interface.

Cons

Meaningful use data compilation can be time consuming. Medication data entry could be improved.
