Allscripts Professional EHR Software


Allscripts Professional EHR is a solution for small to midsize physician practices. Professional works in accountable care organizations (ACO), patient-centered medical homes and federally-qualified health centers. 

Professional EHR tracks the history of what care providers have given in previous treatments and can repeat when applicable. Users will receive patient care suggestions based on patient specifics like age and symptoms. Caregivers can then filter their lists for diagnosis and plans based on their individual preference. SIGs for smart list medications will also be auto-populated based on patient specifics like age.

Professional EHR can sort views on the face sheet based on user preference. These views include a duplicate diagnosis view that groups identical diagnosis codes in one view, a problem category view that groups diagnosis codes into like categories and a specialty-specific problem view that groups diagnosis codes into categories relating to specialties identified in caregiver options.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Windows 2000

    We have gotten used to it, however the only reason we continue to use it is because we have payed so much for it.

    Pros

    by the book (but not very user friendly because of it), MIPS portal is nice(though very buggy), FMH is helpful and there are new features we are looking forward to.

    Cons

    Crashes all the time. Expensive. Hard to use if you don't have an IT guy. Support is hit or miss.

    Pros

    It works for what my company uses it for, but I have to say there aren't any pros to it. It's just not easy to use.

    Cons

    The interface is what needs work. I'm just not a fan of the product as it's not easy to navigate. There are way too many options.

    Cons

    support is in India and there is no accountability for bad advise, the management is hard to deal with unless you email the CEO

    Look elsewhere, there are open source options I would choose before this.

    Pros

    It was easy to use and to find what you needed, it is a fairly simple software. The ability to send electronic prescriptions is also a plus.

    Cons

    Very slow and takes forever to load! Integrations with other systems is also nearly impossible. The software UI is very poorly designed and the coding is obviously messy. Downtime seemed to be a given each week as the system would go down randomly and seemingly every week.

    I used this product less than 6 months in our search for an EMR system

    Pros

    After doing my work on learning they system I had a full understanding. The staff was great as far as training goes.

    Cons

    The raise of use for the doctor wasn’t there in the event he had to use it himself. And the GUI could have been better

    Pros

    Easy to use; users point and click; can see previous assessments used by previous users; can save and return to complete.

    Cons

    The system updates pretty often. They are usually scheduled, but users are unable access during a period of time which is inconvenient; sometimes crashes.

    Product generally works pretty well, but basic not critical bugs are rarely if ever corrected (even crossing major versions). Despite expensive maintenance contracts. I have been told that despite calling their period in version updates as "Cumulative Updates", they do not recommend applying these unless you have specific issues addressed. This would make them a hotfix rather than a cumulative update.

    Pros

    Extremely versatile and customizable product.
    User interface is fairly clean and easy to use.
    Vast number of features and options specific to your practice.

    Cons

    Company is slow to correct usability and bug issues.
    Support is slow and often does not seem very skilled.
    Extremely expensive to implement, upgrade and patch.

    I love that it has ePrescribe and eFax. It makes it very convenient. I also find the system very easy to use.

    Cons

    The Eprescribe and Efax don’t always go through and you do not receive an alert if it doesn’t. This software requires 2 computer screens to be able to work in the system properly.

    Pros

    Open platform allows customization for most all specialties. Once built, platform stability seems to be fine.

    Cons

    Requires a lot of table-design and system build-out prior to use. Clinical workflows full of glitches and tens of clicks to access and chart within patient accounts. Support available mostly via international call center until you push to escalate. Most "fixes" are just workarounds that do not fix the issue, only require additional work for the users and physicians.

    We used to use all scripts at our nursing homes. This is an excellent platform for staying in contact with the hospitals and not missing potential referrals.

    Cons

    I really don't have any negative issues with this platform. At one point it became difficult to manage as a person had to stay at the desk, they later upgraded the mobile version and resolved the issue.

    Does not always integrate with other health systems. The obstetrical componet sometimes locks and does not allow editing.

    Using something different and better than the last is always a plus. I got a chance to learn that every EHR software isn't the same so you learn to adapt and take what you learned to turn it into something greater for the next.

    Pros

    What I like most about this EHR software is the layout of the schedule, charts, messages and task bars.

    Cons

    The thing I least like about this software is how the scheduling is done. There's no way to schedule patients from their chart instead of having to have to go from the scheduling page.

    It's thorough and can be customized, but building the functions out requires a lot of time and effort.

    Pros

    I like that we can ePrescribe and eFax. It shows the patient's insurance carrier at the top, but it doesn't show their ID number, and to do anything with the insurance company, you need the ID number, and the only place to find it is in their SCANNED in insurance docs - chart viewer. That's pretty bad.

    Cons

    The interface is not attractive, the software itself is really big, so it's slow, and worst of all it requires A LOT of clicks to do anything!

    it seems like every other week, the software goes down or is "fluctuating" as they describe it, some of the practioners and their MA's can get on, some can't. No matter what, when it does start working again allscripts always forgets that there is a LIS that depends on their input. It cost us thousands in LIS troubleshooting when the system was down for 4-5 days.

    Pros

    I guess it must have been the cheapest option for the providers at the time, while it works, it isn't very user-friendly

    Cons

    it seems like every other week, the software goes down. They are always expeiencing problems with the "cloud". Every doctor can make their own "short list" but the shortlist items don't update when changes have to made to testing, so requisitions go to "hold" mode

    Pros

    When it works correctly, it does just about everything we need it to.

    Cons

    It is hardly ever fully functioning. The referral and insurance verification has not worked since I got here in 2016. We have outages at least once a week. Our Allscripts PM and EHR do not always transmit information back and forth. Saving EKG function malfunctions constantly. IF it was fixed in a timely manner it would be A LITTLE different, but still ridiculous for the amount of money we spend on Allscripts. Our office would not recommend Allscripts to any office.

    DON'T BUY THIS!!

    Pros

    Lots of downtime. At my institution, that meant we could return to paper charting which was more accurate & efficient.

    Cons

    Lots of clicks to do anything. Requires several screens to do almost anything, with slow transition time between screens. Used this 68 months, seemed slower the longer we used it. Certain parts could not be edited. Requested changes re: typos & inaccurate descriptions which could not be edited, and still were not fixed after years and multiple Updates. Frequent freezes and crashes. Anytime an Update was implemented, several days of freezes and crashes. Many Updates worthless (e.g., changes in screen colors, fonts, design of screens, etc.). Template outputs too wordy.

    Allscripts Professional does everything an EMR should do. Navigation is easy, orders are straightforward, and scheduling is non complicated. I've been very pleased.
