Converting to electronic medical records with Epitomax worked really well for our non-profit.

Timely and all needed staff access to client information and treatment documentation electronically and in a online system that can be accessed at any time and any location. Ability to run reports for data enriched analysis of our programs and services, staff productivity, quality assurance, etc.

Pros

The feature in Epitomax I appreciate the most is the ability to customize clinical forms and treatment plans. At any time, our clinical team can add or delete individualized treatment plan goals and objectives. The system is not static, but set up as dynamic to change and evolve with our changing needs. We are highly pleased with the individual therapy progress note that was developed for us personally by the Epitomax forms team during our set up time. It is an elegant, use to ease form that meets all documentation requirements and serves us well!

Cons

On occasion, functionality in the system is compromised. If the software fails, it is most likely to send a user back to the log in screen when the user hits the update button on a form to save information written. Even though it doesn't happen too often, losing data and having to type what was lost back in is a great staff frustration and loses us time.

Hi Jeanne, We value your feedback, thank you! Any time you have an issue, please contact your account manager and/or support so that we can assist. There are adjustments we can make to your configuration, such as making your auto-save interval smaller, that could resolve the issue depending on what is causing it. We can help your network team debug any local network issues you may be experiencing as well. Best Regards, Jennifer

Function over form - does what you need but doesn't look super sexy

I work at a counseling center. Previous to using this program we had two separate databases - one for writing required paperwork and the other for scheduling. We also had tons of excel documents and various tracking mechanisms that we had to do by hand because we had two separate systems that didn't communicate with each other. Epitomax made it so that we could do everything in one place - scheduling, paperwork, generating billing, ect. It also created checks and balances - we know if paperwork isn't getting done, we don't bill unless prwrk is complete, we have functions to make sure we don't schedule clients with someone who can't take their insurance, ect. We also aren't responsible for the server maintenance. Overall, it was a great move for our business! It was a lot of work to get things set up but it was worth the investment and made us able to grow and expand. We have opened up several new site locations since starting this program and it makes it so much easier to do that because we already have a system in place. It's web based so it goes wherever we go!

Pros

It does everything you need! You can schedule appointments, do paperwork electronically, creating billing from within the system. There are tracking mechanisms and a query tool so you can get stats and information you need to track different aspects of your business. It can also be customized to what you need.

Cons

The system is not very intuitive and it has some quirks. It does so many things, which is awesome, but that makes it somewhat tedious to get where you need to go and to get things set up in ways that accomplish what you need. The program doesn't do anything unless you "tell" it to (aka set up the programming or have Epitomax staff set it up). Some of those things Epitomax staff will do in the set up process for you, but if you're an expanding business you will need to continue to make adjustments as you grow and as needs expand. Once you grasp how the program works and have the basic set up in place, you should be fine, but it's a process and takes time and money to get it going.

Customer friendly and ready to help. Excellent uptime and very few issues with the EHR.

It has made life easier, especially during audits and medical record reviews. It has also automated a lot of systems we previously did manually.

Pros

Epitomax integrates with Dr. First which is very nice and saves our prescribers a lot of time. We were able to meet meaningful use stage 1 with some effort and it has always been a great system to run reports in for these types of endeavours. If we do not know what report to run we just ask the support team and they will either find the one that works or create a new one for us to use. I love that we can scan everything into the patient record and no longer having paper charts. It saves us time, money, and is cleaner when going to find old files instead of searching through them by hand. The people that work there are great we have never had any issues and would gladly recommend (and have) psytech solutions as a company to friends and colleagues of ours.

Cons

It could be more intuitive but I could say that about most software I use. Once you learn how the tabs and code tables work things are pretty easy to set up and change at will but in the beginning it can be a bit overwhelming how much you can do. For someone that came from paper it was a tough but worthwhile transition.

Thank you for the review Adam! Yes, the system is highly configurable, but I think you agree that it is well worth the effort. We will continue to work on streamlining the setup and training processes to make them more intuitive and efficient. Please let us know if you have any specific recommendations or anything you need!

Don't spend your money on this system

My overall experience with Epitomax has been nothing but negative. Work orders aren't done in a timely manner. We're still waiting for fixes that we've asked to be taken care of since day one of go live. Something simple like making sure we're in the correct time zone shouldn't be put on the back burner for four months. This system has caused so much anxiety for the people working in it. I'm convinced we've lost clients because of it. We had NO training from Epitomax on how to use the system to navigate it efficiently. Which in turn causes trouble for the people using it, which in turn reflects on us as an organization and turns people off from wanting to get services here.

Pros

The ease of having the record electronically versus needing to dig out a paper file.

Cons

There are so many things to dislike about this software it's hard to narrow it down. Printing out a document is a joke, there are about 10 pages to an assessment and most of that space is blank white paper. It's hard to find anything you're looking for except maybe an address. The scheduler is too hard to use. Information doesn't scrape over from one document to the next like it should. Information is way too scattered throughout the record. Basic information should be at your fingertips not hidden 10 clicks away. I've worked in many electronic medical records and this is by far the worst record I've ever had to use.

Hello Jackie, I would highly recommend you contact the Primary Contacts in your organization to further explore the issues you encounter in Epitomax when they occur. The Primary Contacts enter support tickets which drive our support of your organization and set priorities. Though Epitomax can be highly customized, unfortunately, we are not able to make every change that is requested of us. Forms issues and form re-design can also be requested via a ticket. It is often the case that the recognition of inefficiencies occurs after you are live, so please don't hesitate to make the suggestions to your Primary Contacts. Finally, I will be reaching out to your Primary Contacts to further explore your concerns regarding lack of training and loss of clients. This is the first I have heard this, so I would like to explore the situation further and make any necessary adjustments to ensure this isn't the reality. Thank you, Jennifer Geiman, Director of Customer Success

Best EHR

Epitomax has helped us become fully electronic and no longer need paper records to support our electronic record. Epitomax has improved our reporting capabilities to help with agency management. It has reduced the number of billing systems we have to use from 2 to 1 and the number of support staff we need to complete the billing process to just 1.

Pros

I like that Epitomax is customizable. We are able to update features and work processes to fit our agency instead of changing our agency operations to fit the software. We were able to make all of our paper forms, electronic forms easing the transition from paper to electronic. Form development is quick and painless with the customer service team. The customization options on the billing end makes it easy to meet the billing requirements of all of our payers. The customization of user roles and access is also nice. If there is not a report built to return information you need, the customer service team can usually build you a query to return the needed information in 1-2 days.

Cons

User friendliness for end-point users is not the best. There is not a way to filter electronic forms to help find all of the ones that need completion.
