Robust but Pricy.

Pros

It integrates seamlessly across different departments. Customer support is great and seems to listen to feedback.

Cons

The software is a little overwhelming. You really have to train and meet regularly in order to use it to its fullest potential. It is very time consuming and costly and is not customizable.

Excellent product; be wary of costs

Pros

Excellent product and services; very responsive to issues and requests for enhancements.

Cons

Can be very pricey, especially for organizations in growth mode. Working on enterprise pricing model; hopefully this would address.

A software that meets all your business and documentation needs

Pros

The product is very reliable and is extremely customizable to your company needs. The support team is very responsive.

Cons

I think that customers aren't always educated to the depth of the power that this software holds and that leads to customer frustrations.

Great comprehensive software

Pros

-Answers has solutions to meet most of our needs as a CCRC.
-The Answers team always listens and explores ideas. I actually feel as though I help to make Answers better when my idea is accepted.
-The Answers team actively seeks interoperability opportunities and works hard to get them up and running.
-The customer service is terrific.

Cons

I don't have many things that I don't like. For me, the biggest problem I have is that there are so many ways to use Answers that getting everything into practice is a continuous process. That is a good problem though.

Please don't purchase this!!!!!

Overall the program has one great feature--being able to chart in mar/tar for a specific time period for a specific group. It's too bad it just doesn't work. It freezes or shuts down constantly. "Sort table" and "Range" boxes flash constantly. If tech support is needed (which is nearly every week upon update), you have to pay. As far as ease of use, the newest update is a mess. Instead of a generic home page where I can see a list of names with different tabs, I have to select a name first, wait 10 to 40 sec for it to load, then all my charting options are listed on the side. Changing from patient to patient at the push of an arrow button is eliminated entirely. Now one must back out of the mar, wait for it to load, then back out of that patient's home page, wait as it loads again, then you may select another client. Not very well thought out.
