Office Practicum Software


 

Office Practicum by Connexin Software was built by physicians to provide an integrated electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solution. The system offers appointment scheduling, clinical documentation management, comprehensive exam room functionality and billing.

It's noteworthy how many aspects of the system are geared towards the treatment of children, including several growth chart options, such as Down’s Syndrome and preemie-specific growth curves. Templates are included for school and camp forms, with over 175 templates for “sick visits.” Vaccine forecasting allows doctors to keep track of when vaccines are due for their patients, with prompts and notifications to schedule appointments in advance.

Office Practicum has been used for more than 20 years in small to large medical practices, as well as integrated health systems. Office Practicum has received several awards, including Complete EHR Certification for 2014 Meaningful Use, 2011 PCMH Prevalidation by NCQA, and the Surescripts White Coat of Quality in 2011 and 2013.

I feel the overall use of OP is easy and usually has more than one option to get where you need to get. They have a wonderful support team!

Advice to Others

If you have a problem, again use their support staff.

Being a small (solo) pediatric clinic and doing many months of looking for the 'perfect' EMR, we are so happy to have found Office Practicum. We had 7 demos of other products as well as being told we were 'too small' of a practice for some of the large EMR's to sell to, we are very thankful to have found OP. The training and implementation was wonderful! We have now been on the cloud based system for 6 months and our transition has been fantastic. Our decision to change EMR systems was based on that our previous EMR was not keeping up with the current technologies, MU and immunization reporting. OP has been great with all of these! We also use their RCM component which has been invaluable for our practice.

Hands down the best of the best for pediatric offices. OP is so user friendly and works around your practice. Love the ability to personalize it to us.

Pros

User friendly, Finding information takes no time. The screen is not overly busy so easy to get around.

Cons

Nothing right now

Advice to Others

Pay for the onsite training. It's worth it when you start that first day and the rare things happen.

I have nothing bad to say only good. My experience with OP and the maneuverability throughout the EMR is very easy to understand. The reports that can be easily pulled are a tremendous help to the daily job I perform.

Pros

The reports function

Cons

Sometimes slow, but I realize that at times that issue may be linked to internet activity. Sometimes there are issues with the interfacing activity with Healthbridge.

Advice to Others

You won't find a better EMR system especially for a pediatric group.

From day one I have loved the user friendly EMR. The fact that it is built just for us and tailored around our needs in pediatrics is what I love most!

Pros

Ease of use and ability to customize OP for our offices.

Cons

Would like to see the Wcc date in the register field.

Advice to Others

Spend the extra for OP's trainer to come to your office at start up. You might feel confident from the electronic learning but when the rate or weird things happen it's great to be able to maneuver the hurdles with them by your side .

Having used Office Practicum for 16 years, I can say with confidence that this is an outstanding software product developed and supported by an outstanding company. Designed specifically for pediatrics, it has tools pediatricians need to both keep kids healthy and improve quality of care.

Pros

Pediatric-specific, customizable, frequently updated and improved, data-driven, well-supported

Cons

Honestly, nothing. I've used it for years and still think it's the coolest thing ever.

Advice to Others

Just do it.

The product itself is incredible. I have been using it for over 11 years and am still thrilled with it! The updates are quick and the support is extremely helpful. As it is a Pediatric specific EHR, it is ALWAYS up to date with all the latest recommendations. I absolutely LOVE it!

Likes Least

Not really a criticism of Connexin software specifically, but I was used to the way things were when I first purchased it, You pay for the software, and get everything. Not a huge fan of now having to pay extra for all the additional "modules" but this is the way ALL software companies seem to be now.

Recommendations

No other software is consistently rated high in pediatrics as this one. One might be rated higher in a particular year because they just overhauled their pediatric features, but will then ignore it again for five years. OP is consistently tops.

The thing I like the least is the updates. Usually there are great new features, but there is also the occasional glitch that disrupt the workflow until it is resolved.

Recommendations

This software is definitely one to consider because its focus is solely on pediatrics. You won't be able to find another software that will be as in line with what the needs of your practice are.

very little, except sometimes we bring issues to support and they don't take care of it or get back to us with a resolution, or are unable to resolve.

Recommendations

Review all preset templates to make sure they are what you want in a template. Make sure you have someone who is knowledgeable with computers and tech as there are some great features to OP, but you really need some tech background to truly utilize.

This EMR was designed by a pediatrician, and works beautifully for the way pediatricians practice. It incorporates Bright Future guidelines, is very easy to customize and allows for each practitioner to make templates for the way they practice. The company is very responsive to users, and is constantly trying to improve. Highly recommend.

The politeness and help from the employees for hardware and software.
Once you get into the swing of OP it does a lot of streamlining your work.

Likes Least

I would like the rejections on bills to be more clearly telling a story about what happened. Each rejection should be clearly stated in each claim.
I would like to add on procedures to an existing bill when necessary.
I would like to not have a hard time tracing back credits and applying credits to accounts

Recommendations

It is a very well run company. Make sure you push to learn everything you can during your training.
As with everything some people go the extra mile and some assume you should know.

As a seasoned pediatrician with very little tech savvy, it was important to get an EHR with the most support for pediatric primary care.

Likes Least

Unfortunately, even OP still requires the user to divide visit notes into each of the buckets of an encounter.....still takes longer than writing the note would take.

Recommendations

Be sure that the software helps implement care coordination, Bright Futures, interfaces with the state immunization registry, and helps prepare practice metrics that are the most important in pediatrics.

pediatric specific templates and vaccine inventory.

Likes Least

The fact that OP is uni-directional with Florida shots vaccine registry dis-allowing exporting vaccines from florida shots . The general layout of the system has a very small font size making it hard to read, get your self a pair of glasses if you are planning to use OP . The system keeps freezing when I am using it from home and I was told its due to the speed of my wireless internet which means additional cost to upgrade both home and business internet. The schedule for implementation is based upon the availability and the convenience of the trainers, it took me more than 5 months to go live with them and its not because of the intensity of the training its just because they don't have enough trainers. The customer service is of limited help and is mainly for technical support, if you have an EHR question then you have to get in touch with the trainer.

Recommendations

The system is complicated and not user friendly with continuous of clicks and exiting multiple screens to get to the old one..The system needs a lot of upgrades to be up to date with the current technology.The system is not truly paperless since they dedicate a scanner just for OP which means endless scanning affecting the front desk jobs and the work flow. The system doesn't have the capability of faxing referrals to specialists which means using a manual fax at the office which is again consuming more front desk time. Just be careful before you sign with them, look at other EMR's and most importantly look at the system live and have a long list of questions about every single feature otherwise you may end up losing money, time and effort.
