KeyMedical Software offers Electronic Health Records (EHR), practice management, and optical inventory and dispensing software for ophthalmology practices with one to ten providers. KeyMedical supports over 1,000 users in 28 states. They recently received ONC-ACB 2014 certification for version 5.0 of their KeyChart EHR. ONC-ACB certification is required for any provider wanting to receive Medicare and Medicaid Meaningful Use incentives and avoid Medicare payment adjustments. Start with just a basic exam to meet Meaningful Use if you want.
KeyChart EHR has capabilities developed specifically for ophthalmology practices. It is fully customizable but ready to use immediately. KeyChart can recommend eye codes and E&M codes based on documentation taken during an exam. This helps offices reduce the chance of under-coding a patient visit. KeyChart EHR helps physicians speed-up and automate many of their routine clinical tasks such as prescription refills, referral letters, and medical coding. Meanwhile, KeyMed Practice Management Software helps physicians streamline their administrative and clerical office activities including electronic claims submission and insurance verification. KeyOptical helps your optical shop staff track inventory and orders.
Customers can choose either a cloud solution, if they do not want a server in their office, or an on-premise system, if they prefer to have a server in their office. Both systems can be accessed remotely. The system uses the Microsoft SQL database, OLAP, Word, and Excel.

I originally used an Expensive EHR. I've also tried multiple EHR's and this product is good
Importing patients Demographics to Electronic Health Record is less frustrating and less time-consuming. Scheduling is easy and the appointment reminders reduce No-shows Drastically. Very User-Friendly. Allows easy intra-office communication.
Not Podiatry friendly
Good Software, however, not Podiatry oriented.

Their customer service is the best ever!!! The product is user friendly.
Size of font it is too small....they are working on it. Other than that I have nothing.
Get a DEMO.....you will love it. It is so user friendly and the reporting is great.

We have been working with management of KeyChart since 1989, back in the days of PRISM Data Systems! They are wonderful reliable people. We have been using KeyMedical software since 2006 and added KeyChart several months ago. The software delivers what it promises. We had a failed installation of another software company for EHR earlier this year when we tried making a change for EHR.
We have no complaints, but will add one for context. That is that we are presently doing paper redundancy at the request of our doctors.
KeyChart delivers what it promises. We have used KeyMedical software remotely hosted and are now using in office servers since we purchased servers for our failed install of another product. Both in office and remotely hosted use of the software are reliable and fast. The interface with the practice management KeyMedical Software is smooth and we have had no problems.

The vendor staff is very helpful and will quickly resolve issues.
Some reports are hard to obtain. I have difficulty using Data Mining.
Visit an office with this system and compare to another practice.
Anthony from Cirino Eye Center
KeyMed is an ophthalmology specific EMR that has exam templates that are easy to tailor to your specific needs. It flows very nicely through the exam and the screen never looks "too busy". Once you are used to it, the exams are pretty quick and easy to document. I've used them since 2006 and have been very pleased with it.
Sometimes when there is a software update, I don't know what the updates were.
Like any EMR you may be looking at, take a look and see how you like it.
Erin from Florida Vision Institute
This is the best software that can be changed to your needs. If you need any type of support or modifications, they are there 24/7. The support team and training are the best! This is the most user-friendly software I have ever had the opportunity to use.
The font is rather small and not adjustable. Other than that, it is amazing.
Always get feedback from your front desk, billing, and technical staff before making a decision; they are the ones using it every day.
Todd from Gavin Eye Consulting, PLLC
The software is ophthalmology-specific. A smaller vendor seems to give better service and more personal service, when it is needed.
One needs to find a billing vendor that can function with KeyChart. At times, the program functions slower than I would like. This may be a function of the age of my computer system and not the program, though.
What is promised by the sales department for many of the large software companies frequently can not be delivered by the IT department. Ask many questions and get the specifics in writing.
James from James S. Linder, MD, PC
Billing module is user-friendly.
EMR is not as robust as others. Not so user-friendly with PQRS.
Need to spend time navigating around to see if fits needs.
