The attractive features of the system is that it was designed by Ob/Gyn's for Ob/GYN's. Initially the system worked well.
Very slow. Every time there is upgrade the system goes out of wack for a long time. It seems like the system administrators are overwhelmed by the government's new rules and regulations.
Have at least 3-4 different systems demonstrations. Don't get fooled because it is OB/GYN specific. I have a feeling that the companies overwhelmed and they cant keep up with all the changes in healthcare rules.

Valdosta Women’s Health Center, PC is a busy two-physician practice that was established in 1993. Management decided to implement an EMR in 2005 and a full time Microsoft Certified technician was hired to research and launch the EMR. A server-based EMR was purchased and installed, and chaos resulted. The EMR (Not digiChart) was immature and template-driven, and it had issues revery day that required contacting the vendor for support. The so-called technical support involved submitting a trouble ticket email that took up to 14 days allowed to correct. It took 24 clicks of the mouse for the physicians to sign off on a normal pap smear. Updates were offered at more cost. Our IT guy quit in despair. Management decided to abandon the old EMR and migrate to digiChart in 2007. The migration was painless and quick. We have never looked back. digiChart was designed by OB-GYNs for OB-GYNs, not by computer geeks. It is intuitive. Support personnel are friendly and quick to respond via a telephone call or email. User meetings attended were very helpful. The physicians love digiChart, and two other local OB-GYNs also moved their EMR to digiChart after seeing digiChart in action at the hospital. The antepartum record is instantly recognized nationwide, and several physicians have called our office to ask which EMR we use to produce the ACOG formatted antepartum record. digiChart is not perfect; nothing is. digiChart has grown and experienced growing pains. One episode involved slowness of operation that was challenging, but it's now corrected. You get what you expect, and the providers at VWHC expect digiChart to run smooth and quick - and digiChart meets or exceeds expectations nearly every time.
Upgrades are tough. But, it appears as though digiChart is following the MU lead, which is a challenge in and of itself
Check around. Use an EMR that was designed by physicians, not computer guys.
