IT IS WONDERFUL SO EASY TO USE VERY FOCUSED ON PEDIATRICS UNLIKE OTHER EHR'S
LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM THERE IS NOTHING I CAN SAY EXCEPT THAT WE NEED TO HAVE MORE PEDIATRICIANS IN MY AREA USING IT SINCE IT IS VERY BIG IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. NUMBER ONE AMONG PEDIATRICIANS.
BEWARE OF BIG EHR'S THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT SMALL PRACTICES.
DO YOU THINK EPIC CARES IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM THEY ARE TAILORING EVERYTHING FOR WHERE THEY WILL MAKE THE MOST MONEY, WITH HOSPITALS.
SO EASY TO CUSTOMIZE I CAN DO MOST CHANGES MYSELF AND HAS ALLOWED ME TO CERTIFY FOR A LEVEL 3 MEDICAL HOME.

The best thing about EncounterPro from Xcite is it's ease of use. The record is very intuitive so the learning curve is very easy. The office view offers a huge advantage over most of the other products because everyone in the office and see and respond to the up to minute status visible on this screen.
There is nothing about this product that I dislike. Meaningful Use requirements have added several things that I don't need, but those would be required of all EMRs.
Ease of Use is a key consideration. If a product is difficult to use, chances are that the physicians and staff will be very unhappy. Fortunately, EncounterPro is very easy to use.
