Highly customizable; powerful reporting features

Pros

Qualifacts is highly responsive to customers' needs. They offer frequent webinars, a customer support website, and a support ticket system. CareLogic customers have also formed user-led groups which meet quarterly to discuss system use, new features, etc.. This helps customers take advantage of massive changes in the healthcare field and Qualifacts' constant efforts at providing more powerful features.

Qualifacts has a yearly conference, which is a great opportunity to learn about features directly from Qualifacts’ staff. I have attended twice and learned a great deal of new information each time.

CareLogic is highly customizable. You can create and modify forms and reports to fit any type of behavioral health program. The program comes with many options already configured, but there are limitless ways to tailor the EHR to you specific needs. Users who are familiar with Structured Query Language (SQL) can create customized reports to meet nearly any business need. In addition to the ability to program reports, CareLogic comes loaded with dozens of reports for a variety of needs.

CareLogic has features to handle every step in the client/patient process, from initial phone call to discharge. It also has many features to track and manage employee data.

Cons

It's not a "pretty" system. I have seen EHRs which look fancier and appear to be more user-friendly. It does not yet support multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). It has to be run only on Internet Explorer.

It can experience varying degrees of system slowness, especially when e-prescribing, throughout the day. I don't believe this is unique to Qualifacts, however - you are at the mercy of your internal network and internet service provider in addition to any speed issues CareLogic may actually have.

Good but just short of great

Pros

CareLogic is at its best when used by a small to medium sized behavioral health agency offering outpatient services. It's user interface is relatively simple, and it offers tools for users to develop their own data entry forms, as well as to incorporate industry standard outcomes measurement tools. Also available are basic "canned" reporting, along with tools the user can use to develop their own reports. There is a large, active, and mutually supportive user community.

Cons

Qualifacts is trying to meet the growing needs of their existing user base, while also trying to expand their customer base into new markets. This has led to uneven quality of some newer features, and has also led to situations where new features are developed to meet very narrow requirements, without taking into consideration how a feature might be built or configured to meet the needs of a larger audience. This leads to a perception amongst some users, that new features are good, but not great, or are close to being usable, but not quite, depending on the needs on the ground.

Large and/or complex organizations with commensurately more complicated reporting and billing requirements may face challenges. This is likely the case with most similar platforms, however.

CareLogic the best of the field

The best thing about Qualifacts is their customer service orientation. While not absolutely perfect over the seven years we've been customers, problems that arose have been addressed vigorously. The management of the company is interactive and engaged with their end users. Their mission is directly to further our work with clients, which I appreciate. EHR software has to live between the worlds of a fragmented healthcare system, the great variety of customer needs and programs, and federal and state regulations that are ever-changing. I have felt supported along the way to achieve the work of our agency by their focus on making that intersection easier. I highly recommend this platform.

Pros

CareLogic is easy for end users. The simple schedule-keep appointment-link to document-bill each day workflow works for clinicians. The billing is accurate, and we've never lost a bit of data. Reliability is very high, and has improved from already high service level reliability. Speed is good, and data is available.

Cons

The interface is dated compared to programs like Microsoft office or web sites like Gmail. There have been strides in the last two years in that the interface is now browser agnostic, running on platforms other than Microsoft IE. It was a tough change to implement, given some built-in data elements that relied on IE. Qualifacts stuck with the project, though, and achieved the goal.

Functional and adequate to meet our needs

Overall I think Carelogic is a good system. You will be hard pressed to find the "perfect" system, but so far this has worked well for us. The support team at Carelogic is helpful as well and their response to problems or questions has improved quite a bit over that last year. I will say that we are satisfied so far with your system.

Pros

1. Our clinical staff find ease of use for booking appointments and using the correct documentation.
2. The reports that come with this system are helpful and provide needed information
3. It is easy to create forms that are needed
4. Setting up of activities and mapping them out is relatively easy after some training.
5. The upload and download of medicaid billing and payments has been hugely successful and increased our revenue.
6. Our psychiatrists have been using Dr. First and this has been huge for us. It took quite a bit of work with Carelogic to get it up and running, but once that happened it has been working very well for us.

Cons

1. The AR part of the system does not provide the best reports. We have learned to live with it and with some tweeking on our part have made it work.
2. The area where you create reports that you want is difficult and not very user friendly - we have struggled in this area.

Clinical interface works great for clinical staff. Ongoinsupport model leaves a lot to be desired.

Maximizing revenue

Pros

Ease of changing clinical forms. Ease of searching for clients and staff. Scheduling and finding availability for appointments. IMPACT library and potential.

Cons

The business model that goes from on site implementation to distance based support primarily through tickets and pushing out or new products. While the price point is low for organizations; Qualifacts should truly consider a regional manager or regional support model. THis would be more than holding regional user group meetings. This would involve an RM making calls to clients to discuss their needs and new products and roll outs and then checking in the system to make sure things are optimized.. At least quarterly visits as well for a day. Please consider this. Customer service and true engagement is where its at. We spoke a lot about patient engagement this conference but the Qualifacts model is not one of continued client engagement. I know many think it is as it has awesome components and community spaces but truly having a go to person for the region who checks in and cares is the way to do it. Anyway, we are working hard to translate all of the awesome features to our practice. Well done conference.

Carelogic is user-friendly for all levels of staff.

we are able to serve our clients better and integrate outcomes within their records, bill electronically, report to funders, collect data for MIPS, state reporting and use reports to educate our managers and staff.

Pros

l like to ease of use for staff to schedule clients and document in records and billing out for services. There are some nice options for face sheet, medications is pretty easy to use. Entry of client information is easy to do. I

Cons

Carelogic has taken a long time to improve the treatment plan and it should be more configurable and report view is not easy to read. Lab functionality does not pull in client informaiton from Carelogic (Insurance, Diagnosis) and staff have to double enter information every time order a lab. Qualifacts needs to have ability to merge clients as we have many duplicate and there is no way to combine them. we are unable to delete test clients. We also need a password reset function, Reporting is complicated for end users and need easier way for managers to pull reports,

Working claims billing through carelogic

Overall it works pretty good. I think there needs to be more people who work at care logic who understand the needs of the billing side better. I have had to figure a lot of stuff out when I could not get answers from care logic people.

Pros

Once it is set up it most functions work good.

Cons

When we set up in 2012 the instructions and training we received from CareLogic were not very thorough. Setting up payer fee schedules we would be instructed how to set those up. Then Carelogic would look at it and say this isn't correct. I had to re map the fee schedules 4 times before getting it correct. There are several functions that do not work as well as stated by trainings. Mass adjustment is one of those functions that needs improvement. Claim rollups work minimally. If you follow instructions for setting them up, you have to be very specific. The instructions don't state that issue. I feel like Carelogic relies too much on the user communities to figure out how to learn and understand the workings of the system.

easy to learn

We are able to monitor client appointments and attendance. We can easily look for errors in billing and make corrections in documentation. The ability for supervisors to "reject" a document allows for errors to be fixed easily. It is quick to learn the minimal basic functions and there is some adaptability and flexibility to be able to fit it to specific program needs. The reports functions could be improved but overall the reports have been useful.

Pros

The program is easy to learn and easy to use. We have a number of interns who work at our office every year and they are able to pick it up quickly and use it on a regular basis to complete their work, even with only basic computer knowledge, it is easy to learn. While initial use is easy, mastering it is more difficult. There are a number of report options that could be useful, but require more practice.

Cons

The reports functions often do not show what we need or are difficult to use. There is more data that we would like to be able to track that is not part of the canned reports.

CareLogic by Qualifacts

Overall our experience has been good, although not without issues. Poor response time in reporting has been an ongoing problem since 2010 and has improved only marginally at best. However, ease of use and flexibility in implementation are big plusses. We have a wide range of programs serving all ages from cradle to grave, so flexibility is important for us.

Pros

The Scheduling aspect of CareLogic works well. Documentation writing is also fairly easy and easy to customize with our own templates based on compliance requirements and quality of care guidelines. The IMPACT tool is very useful given the emphasis on data driven treatment plans and modalities.

Cons

Form design abilities are somewhat limited. Reporting is quite problematic from a performance perspective, both canned and custom reports. Response from Support is somewhat slow and often the first tier analysts have insufficient experience and system knowledge to understand and resolve complex issues.

Carelogic

Like the system very much, problems in last year with stability have been resolved in last several months, ability to customize is good feature, but some of the built-in business rules are limiting.

Pros

Easy to use, all of record in one place (not partially on paper and other parts in EMR). Clinical forms can be customized for different programs as well as sites with specific needs.

Cons

Treatment plans and Treatment plan reviews - very restrictive with timeframes that do not meet all needs. Trainings is extensive and often needs repeating. Dr. First interface is outside of the EMR and does integrate well at times. Getting responses from support can take weeks or months and then there may need to be a back and forth to really fix. System was quite unstable for several months, but has been more reliable in last several month.

CareLogic has been a perfect fit for our behavioral healthcare organization

Improved ability to monitor staff performance and productivity; improved ability to evaluate if clients are receiving appropriate intensity of services; improved ability to navigate the ever-changing BH world / managed care world in Ohio

Pros

CL has been a good fit for a diverse staff with varying degrees of experience and professional maturity. It lends itself well to individualization of forms and processes. It has features that make life in this complex BH world easier to navigate. We have yet to examine the full capabilities! We have a skilled report writer who is able to write reports to pull the exact information we need.

Cons

The treatment plan module is cumbersome. There are some new updates that we will be exploring and hope they address some of the clunkiness!

Some good points, some not so good!

During the vendor selection process, the sales reps gave the impression the software had a lot more flexibility than it does. The reporting/extracting data has been an issue since we began using the software and continues today. There are limitations in the security since you can block access but not down to a singular item. The configurable forms are a plus however extracting the data from them is nearly impossible. The software has some good points, however in the setup, we were not fully informed of some of the limitations.

Pros

Once you are trained in its use, the flow in the ECR comes with ease. Good tracking and reporting of billing.

Cons

Reporting/Extracting data.

Response from Teresa of Qualifacts Systems, Inc.

Replied April 2017

Hi Anne, thank you for your feedback. We hope the Reporting Stabilization project this year has resulted in more predictable reporting and extract of data for your agency. We’re also building on the ease for reporting against data from configurable forms (specifically around multiple instances of a document). And while our privileging in all cases is not available down to every field currently, we’ll certainly review that request with our Product team for future roadmap consideration. We made significant investments in 2016 around customer service and product that we believe will improve your experience. We appreciate you as our customer and are here to help, so we’d love your perspective on any additional areas on which we can focus specific to your agency and/or the entire CareLogic community. As always, you can reach us through the support desk or during the weekly status calls to make sure we’re addressing your needs. Thank you, your Qualifacts team.

Carelogic - outcomes

Pros

I like the recent enhancements to the treatment plan module, making it much easier for staff to collaborate with clients to establish goals and objectives. The ability to integrate the IMPACT assessment module directly into the treatment planning process is fantastic.

Cons

After having the software for a few years, there is no way to 'clean up' unused lists and forms. Additionally, reporting/pulling data out of the system can be complicated since reports are often 'built on' forms and whenever a form is updated, the report needs to be updated. Companies really need to have staff dedicated/knowledgeable about Pentaho/SQL, which is sometimes out of the budget for smaller organizations.

Carelogic Enterprise Software Review

Pros

The setup is very convenient, you can access a lot of data very quickly. You have a great degree of control on how your menus are configured and set up. You also have a great amount of ability to restrict and limit access to specific employees, specific programs or specific employee groups. You have the ability to write very fluid and very powerful reports using ORACLE.

Cons

The reporting platform is very antiquated and unable to give output or support most of our reports, meaning we have to run very large data queries in small batches, and that takes up a lot of analyst time. There is no administrator log to track which employees did which actions in the Carelogic system.

Carelogic Review

Pros

We have been live with Carelogic now for a little over 4 years. Once you get an understanding of the system, it is fairly easy to use. The scheduler is a great feature that allows us to track all appointment, per clinician on a daily basis. It allows for us to easily send clean claims out the door. It also has the nice feature of alerts to help remind the staff of appointments not marked kept or documents that need to be signed.

Cons

Carelogic has a lot of downtime or latency issues. They are also not the most up to date software product out there. There is no options to merge a client, which is very time consuming when you have to fix a clients file.

Fits our needs and highly configurable.

Pros

We get to create our own forms that fit the needs of our agency. Most things tie together pretty well. Relatively easy to train new staff to use the system. The staff are all very nice and willing to help.

Cons

Promised features take a long time (years) to come in to operation. There are a lot of clicks to go through to get where you need to go, and there is no breadcrumb trail to take you back to where you were if you click something accidentally. The additional features all have additional costs instead of being all inclusive. It seems like the newest staff people (who have the least experience with the system) are the ones assigned to the help center.

Fair - 3rd EHR I've used since 2005 as clinician and Medical Director

Pros

There are some fairly simple and straightforward templates for psychiatric and specialty mental health services in the software.

Cons

Even with a great internet connection, users can be typing for a period of time and lose notes, because the system crashes on the Qualifacts/CareLogic end. This happens more than occasionally, so we have to hit Submit to save our partially written notes quite often.

I'm both a clinician and administrator, with a 12 year history of being a medical director and experience implementing three different EHRs in different clinics. I also see patients, work out in the field on an ACT Team with the homeless, and have done everything from that on up to training staff. This EHR is very clunky. The interface is not user-friendly, and it takes an unnecessary number of clicks to get even very simple documents into writing.

Also, it is only accessible by using PCs with Internet Explorer. In my experience, IE is widely considered inferior and slower than Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and other products.

The way the EHR is set up is not like a medical record, which should read from beginning to end in a clear, chronological order with reference from one chart section to another quickly. This feature can and will save lives. But the setup in this system is more like different clinicians, each having their own records. It takes too long to reference others' notes and then get back into the body of your own note.

There are glaring omissions in the psychiatric assessment - things that would fail a typical medical student write up, let alone resident or post graduate. For example, there is no field in the ACT Team psychiatric assessment for past medical history, past family history, allergies, alcohol and substance use history, or social history. It might work okay for poorly trained psychiatrists that do not document these minimum fields in their initial assessments. But if you want to provide good, quality, evidence-based care using the recovery model, bio-psycho-social model and collaborative documentation, it is not possible with this software. It does not have customizable fields for certain treatment teams or specialized services. I recently finished an initial evaluation and tried ordering labs with the software. I soon realized that each specific lab I ordered would require a lot of clicks and diagnostic codes, all of which could be handled by the simple v58.69 code - metabolic or other medication related side effects. There are other examples as well.

First in Texas

Training in the Qualifacts Nashville office is GREAT and highly recommended. The software works if you set it up with the end game in mind.

Pros

It is comparable to other EHR systems of its size in most cases. We need the medical billing component and it can process claims.The support issue has gotten much better over the past year or two.

Cons

If you set it up incorrectly, you are in worlds of trouble. Implementation follow-thru was inconsistent and support was extremely delated for our first two years of use. It is hard to find the right person to talk to when you have a major software issue. The medical chart component needs more development.

We have been customers for a long time and I would say that CareLogic meets about 80% of our needs.

Data accessibility and ease of implementation/technological access.

Pros

It is easy to learn and has high dependability. We make good use of the reporting tools provided with the system. I appreciate the mobility of the system in that you only need internet access to run the application. We are also happy that the system is available on multiple browsers now.

Cons

Some of the billing workflows can be difficult or not optimized. We frequently find data issues that we have to have reported to support to be corrected. We have also experienced problems related to signature pads and the software drivers with cross browser.
