We currently switched to DeVero when DeVero was acquired from Netsmart. Netsmart just could not give us what we wanted. I have to say they tried but in the end were unsuccessful and they let us move to DeVero
Ability to create physician orders from certain parts of the patient's chart

This software leads to over a 50% attrition rate for a home health care company I contracted with. The model is simple: give away a free version with an almost intentionally poorly designed interface that is completely counterintuitive and goes against the most basic principals of software interface design. Then charge for "tech support" for implementation. Then sell the data sets that are more valuable than the person's time who put them in.
Not having to use it for more than 2 weeks.
The completely counterintuitive interface.
Don't waste your time.

use every day to order patient tests
You are able to go in and put notes on orders or visits. It is easy to go back and find the history of a patient.
It takes a while for the program to communicate with the lab system. It takes a while to understand all the buttons/tabs
It worked through multiple disciplines so everyone had access to all patient information and billing
It was hard to use, did not recognize basic medical terminology, only allowed one person to access a case at a time.
Julie from Chhc
This software is well organized and easy to use. Has some functionality I wish would work better but mostly positives.
Tina from The Doctor's clinic
This software is easy to learn and easy to use. use. We were on a DOS system and still use paper charts.
