Decent but can be complicated

I overall could deal with the program and its quirks. It is a decent program. But there are probably better ones on the market.

Pros

Was great for the mental health side. Had comprehensive assessments, releases and forms could be built into the system to look how you wanted them. Customer service was fast if ever there was a problem the superusers.

Cons

But the version of the program we had was so old that it did not work for all of the department. Would have preferred something that was behavioral health overall so that substance abuse could be included.

Cerner has simplified the patient admin process, however the program frequently freezes.

Pros

Centralized location for patient documents, it is easy to use, able to see multiple schedules at once.

Cons

The program will frequently freeze if I'm clicking through icons quickly and it causes the entire system to have to reboot.

It has been really helpful to have this program in my practice.

Pros

It is nice to be able to customize it to the specific needs of our practice. It is not hard to make changes either.

Cons

I think the look could be less cluttered, but overall I don't mind it once I got used to the program.

I'm not sure about the front end but I work on the claims and Cerner has proven to be very useful to me and makes life a little easier when it comes to working with several doctors.

Pros

It gives me easy access to work with more than one doctor at a time which makes my life much easier.

Cons

There are some offices I actually have to log out of and sign back on differently to use the program. This can be frustrating.

Providers can easily access all needed applications

Providers have easy access to their info

Pros

The providers enjoy being able to access everything within the application itself. They do not have to jump around to find what they need. If they have multiple locations, still lets them access patients from other areas.

Cons

The application can be difficult to learn on the back end. The end user could notice possible maintenance issues due to this.

Cerner PM is a user-friendly application

Easy to use

Pros

The look - Cerner PM looks very up to date and is fairly easy to navigate around in. The schedule is easy to read.

Cons

I find the charges/payments to be a somewhat confusing screen. Overall no big complaints with EPM. It is easy to catch on to.

Poor support, features and functionality for physicians and therapists

I wrote a review before. Just after trying many times I was told by the IT staff that this software requires you to write controlled substances every time as a new prescription, something that is a basic feature of all programs I use in other places. It's a waste of time, more so when you're busy with patients. It's another reason why I think this program is poor value for your money. That and the fact the support is always lacking and taking forever to fix problems. Just in this last month, the system has broken down an average twice a week. Often we're unable to write prescriptions or write progress notes for many hours while patients are coming to the clinic. I see the IT staff in the clinic trying to resolve the problems but usually takes them often hours or even a day to fix the problem, only to have a different one next week.

Pros

I was told it helps with billing and attendance reports, so I assume it's the main reason somebody buys it. For the rest of the staff is an ongoing disaster.

Cons

Poor features, no intuitive and takes many steps to do basic chores.

Cerner Ambulatory Practice Management

Overall, Cerner is the way to go! Thorough training is provided to get you equipped with how to use the program and customize it to your own personal practice and preference. The software is pretty easy to use and things that may seem difficult are made easy with the great customer service Cerner provides.
