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.

Pros

I love that OP is for pediatric practices only, so the focus is solely on ways to help our office function better. The program is easy to use and is constantly being updated with new features.

Cons

Occasionally, updates are released too quickly or without being tested and they may contain glitches which cause temporary issues.

software is nice but implementation process, technical support and sales team transparency are very questionable.

Be very clear of what you want and have it penciled into the contract.
Would not use their RCM-they take percentage and your staff still has to do a lot of work.
Prepare to pay, it's not cheap.

Pros

like the immunizations layout.
General flow is nice while you have your templates prepared.
Interfaces are nice when they work.

Cons

Tech support is a total disaster.
Different people are responsible for different parts of the program and have no or minimal knowledge of all of it.
You have to be very specific of what you want and have it put into the contract otherwise they will find a way around it.

OP is a great pediatric EMR!

N/A

The portal is a great way to communicate with parents, save A LOT of paper and allow parents/patients to access their own medical records. It has saved us man-power hours and a ton of hassle. A great feature!

Pros

To have an EMR that specifically is tailored to pediatrics is key. The responsiveness of the OP staff, all the way up to the CEO, to their clients is unprecedented and so appreciated. We don't even use some of the features (yet) and we are so happy. It has made billing more efficient, chart documentation more complete and appropriate and has helped our practice immensely. We would highly recommend it for any peds practice!

Cons

The scan review feature needs tweaking - it takes a few clicks to go through scans. But even that is better than the paper system that we used prior.

It does seem the team at OP has thought of everything I would want in an EHR. Very specific to primary care.

Cons

Like all EHR it still takes longer to chart. I am left to put each detail in its bucket. Brain to EHR connection?

Pros

Extremely robust, functionality includes everything a pediatric office would ever need. Emphasis on pediatric specifics including weight based drug dosing, growth charts, and immunizations.

Cons

We have been using OP for almost 4 years and we are very happy with it. We did a lot of research before we chose OP and we are glad we chose this product. OP is very "user" friendly for pediatricians; whereas, the other products out there were not. This made the transition for paper charts to EMR a much smoother process than we anticipated. No regrets!!!

Pros

Ease of use. Support at OP is fabulous...very quick to respond and solve issues.

Cons

Not happy with the speed of retrieving messages. wish it were quicker. Not sure if this is just our system or a glitch with OP. OP is looking into it.

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.

Pros

Ease of use. Training and implementation. Robust system. RCM

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

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.

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.

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

Not intuitive, cannot create a rules engine without assistance. Visually looks like it was made in the 1990's circa Windows 95/98

Great for small practice, phenomenal support, and they listen to their clients with open ears and empty wallets. They care more about you than they do their paycheck, unlike Wells Fargo

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 vendor is very helpful and quick to respond with solutions to most issues our office has. The product itself is easy to use and has so many useful tools (like PCMH reports).

Likes Least

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.

Peds specific. Ease of use in schedule. Extra tools (MU, PCMH), editable reports.

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 software looks nice but it difficult to use. Lots of set up, constantly changing and no customer support. Reports are difficult to read and don't drill down deep enough to really see what a practice is doing. Not good for practices with multiple locations.

Pros

There is nothing I like about this software.

Cons

Time consuming to use, lacks details, no customer support

Advice to Others

Please think twice before purchasing.
