PIMSY EMR Software


 

PIMSY is suitable for midsize mental and behavioral health organizations looking to streamline their entire practice, from clinical documentation to processing collections to scheduling appointments. With PIMSY, going paperless is made simple and time-consuming office tasks are automated, improving workflow efficiency and lowering administrative overhead.

PIMSY includes a fully certified electronic medical record (EMR) as well as practice management. This comprehensive solution offers industry-specific features right out of the box, but also the flexibility to customize the system to match each organization's unique requirements in regards to billing, scheduling, note taking, authorizations and more. There are three different PIMSY plans to meet every budget and upgrading is painless; agencies have access to a solution that can grow and evolve with the business.

PIMSY is best suited to mental and behavioral health service facilities in psychology, counseling and psychiatry. It can also support sub-industries like applied behavioral analysis, substance abuse facilities, sleep therapy, nutrition counseling and more.

PIMSY is both HIPAA compliant and ONC-ACB 2014 Edition/Stage 2 certified for Meaningful Use. In addition to this powerful EHR functionality (which includes ePrescribing), PIMSY offers billing cycle management, as well as HR features such as staff renewal tracking and payroll calculations. The Q&A module allows users to generate forms, questionnaires and other documents to match their specific needs.

Pimsy has been the key to efficiently managing our mental health counseling practice. It has been a huge time saver in that everything from documentation to billing can be completed in a fraction of the time.

Likes Least

The whole experience of transitioning to Pimsy has been a positive one. Of course there is a learning curve as you start to utilize the different features, however the excellent support staff and the extensive training make it all very manageable.

Recommendations

Give it enough time before evaluating because there is always a learning curve to anything new. When using new software that is so comprehensive, it may get worse before it gets better but hang in there because it is worth it.

When speaking with our rep at the start of the process we had 100% confidence that he understood what we needed and how to tailor the product to fit just for us. He was not trying to sell us what we didn't need. His understanding of the Health Care industry and all sides of the office gave us relief to know his guidance and support were a part of the plan. Each interaction we had from there was excellent. From the IT guys helping us understand what we needed in office to how to bill our first client was handled with patience and professionalism.

Likes Least

We are still learning all that PIMSY has to offer and we are looking forward to growing into this program.

Recommendations

We are a small private practice with a range of technical abilities and we would recommend giving yourself time to learn in stages because it can feel overwhelming at the start. Keep practicing and using it in order to learn what works best for your agency. Also, ask for help because the support staff is always willing to assist.

I enjoy the personalized experience when requesting support. The PIMSY team works to support me and the needs of my organization when planning for suture upgrades and in every day support needs. In most areas, the product is easy to use, easy to train staff to use and allows for personalization to specific organizational requirements.

Likes Least

We have struggles with using the product to its fullest within our residential programs, in part, I believe, because the product was initially geared toward outpatient servicees (which we also provide), but PIMSY has made significant progress in helping us meet those needs.

Recommendations

Ask many questions. be sure to educate any vendor about the specific needs of your organization, staff and clients when it comes to keeping a client record, and billing for services.

The support for PIMSY is great (i.e. customer service).

Likes Least

The treatment plan set up, the glitches of it easing my data even after I saved it, the spell check function (especially when you have multiple boxes), the intake/assessment set-up (the way it eases your information on the left side of the field and save it to the right side of the field but then when you go back to complete it, you have to scroll on the right column to see what area on the left column is blank, it's just too much).

Recommendations

Continue to work on the product to make it better.

Not much. The back-end billing function for 3rd party payers is OK - but any other billing process -like product sales, our EAP program services, worker's compensation clients and consulting services are needlessly cumbersome. - and have resulted in us using a different billing system altogether resulting in other inconveniences and inefficiencies. Other people using this for scheduling have a similar experience.

Likes Least

At purchase we were promised an electronic transfer of existing client base- then after told after it would create so many problems, it would be better to hand enter all existing clients which number in the 1,000s and cost us both time and money. Attempts to fix bugs of which there are many are typically ignored. Some bugs - occasionally the program tries to force scheduling of clients on a weekly basis; when entering more than one diagnostic code, much of the time one or more code does not enter on the first c try, requiring reopening of the function and starting over; the calendar change is slow and inconsistent often jumping over months. The program is very slow - often slower with each upgrade as they add code. Occasionally the changes limit functions requiring us to use work-around practices - for example, we are unable to schedule groups efficiently.

Recommendations

Find another vendor would be what i recommend... once locked in it is very difficult to change

The team members at Pimsy are friendly and make a sincere effort to fix any issues and provide what we need. The issues are not with Pimsy staff, but with the product itself. We are a very large group, and it seems the product is just not as Reception friendly, and is missing key elements that the business office staff could really benefit from.

Likes Least

I work in the business office doing denials, and I need to refile claims to paper for many different reasons all week long. I CAN NOT print a claim-HCFA-form. I have to type them by hand. This means, I have to look up the address for the Insurance company, toggle back and forth for patient info, ect....and one you go back and forth, the system will not allow you to continue typing on that line-you have to skip the line you are on and back to it, before it will allow you to continue typing. There were many things about our old system that automatically populated in....not with Pimsy....drives me nuts!

Recommendations

Personally, I wish we had the ease of use we had with our old system. It was easier to flag accounts, look up Insurance addresses and phone numbers on the actual system, so many items would auto populate, and I could PRINT a claim form. The account information was easier to read. It was easier to tell what someone owed, the true balance on account,ect. I have gotten use to Pimsy so not as hard for me, but I can see where others who are not on accounts everyday might have a more difficult time. Pimsy is very stream-lined, moves quickly, and usually does not freeze up like the old system....which is great!

I think it takes too long when scheduling patients, there needs to be notification of some kind on the calendar side if there are important notes on the account. It doesn't track authorizations well at all. In some aspects it is great, but there are some areas that need work.

Recommendations

Evaluate it according to how it affects your specific job.

The best thing about the product and the vendor is the team that makes up PIMSY. No software is perfect but, PIMSY and its' support staff sure makes great strides towards perfection. I can not say enough of how robust this EMR is and how this software grows as you grow. Our facility probably utilizes probably 10 percent of the software and just that 10 percent alone accommodates a facility of 296 clients, 17 clinicians, and 2 administrative staff members. As small as we are, the staff and the support team always treated us like a large corporation, what more can you say about that except for THANK YOU.

Likes Least

What do we like the least about the software is the speed (ie., page transitions) and that PIMSY is only Windows based (ie., must purchase parallel for in order for PIMSY to work on MACs)

Recommendations

Our recommendations would be:
1) get to know the support staff (ie., how willing are they to assist your needs, the length that it takes to resolve your issue(s)
2) how responsive and accepting is the company regarding implementation suggestions (ie., does the company listen to their users on how to better streamline/ or make updates that are beneficial for its' users)
3) is it cost effective
4) is the company willing to write a special script that you maybe required to implement by your accrediting body/ or a script that you want to implement in the software (ie., facility pays for the work order).

PIMSY is very well integrated bringing together the essential modules & components of a diverse practice into one streamlined interface. Our agency researched our options for over a year. After serious deliberation, we chose PIMSY and are very pleased with our choice. I want to emphasize that not only is the product a superior value, but the staff and customer support have been truly outstanding.

This input is more a function of the limits of older PC's and monitors. PIMSY displays a wealth of information horizontally from left to right so it is helpful to have a widescreen monitor display - particularly when working with invoices. 1600 pixels or wider is my suggestion. We have upgraded a number of our PC's and in doing so were able to really benefit from PIMSY's widescreen display capabilities.

Recommendations

It's critical that each agency think a bit outside the box and try to anticipate what their unique needs may be in converting to a new EHR. Our agency had a number of special needs. Since we had identified those early on, we were able to articulate to the PIMSY staff and programmers what we needed, and they were able to expertly decide on how their system could fit our needs as well as any customizations that may be needed to help us hit the ground running. PIMSY staff really wowed us with their ability to get things done and guide us through the process of adopting a new system.
