Updates don’t seem to change anything for the better.

Pros

Geared toward ob/Gyn, has all the necessary components for proper documentation. Up to date for ICD-10.

Cons

Frequently freezes/kicks user out. Often has prepopulated answers that neither pt or MD has entered and cannot be removed. Often we enter data in one section and it’s all erased when you move on to the next section. Always runs slow. Bad user interface on patient portal. Time stamps are not in local time, makes documentation problematic.

Have used this software for over 10 years, hope it improves so that I can recommend to other OB-GYN's.

Pros

Picture of patient on encounter, and specific OB-GYN focus of the program. Web-based interface accessible at home/work.

Cons

Too slow. Patient interface has many problems. Difficulty changing things when complaints are given. Difficulty complying with government regulations as required by law.

Pros

The advantage of using digi chart in our office is that it is an obstetric and gynecologic specific program.

Cons

A major disadvantage is the continued smart application errors, getting kicked out of the program and overall slowness.

Consistent and effective

Pros

This is an OB/GYN specific program that uses ACOG forms as well. This makes the program one of a kind. The medical records are seamless and ease to follow.

Cons

There’s a learning curve, but that’s with any EHR. The support team is always helpful in assisting when necessary.

Pros

Most tasks are easy to accomplish. The reports for EHR are very helpful. It is, most days, very easy to use and user friendly.

Cons

Our CCDR does not work. I have had 2 work requests that have not been resolved. One was closed without correspondence or fix. Wish the tracking reports were available without additional cost. The patient portal is a chore for most patients and does not seem to work with other browsers (google, Mozilla). Patients would like to see the portal available on phones.

Support is timely and good. They do close at 4 pm Pacific time so if anything happens after that I have to wait until the next day.

Pros

ACOG flowsheet built in, patient information flows easily from one visit to the next, drag and drop MDM is helpful, good task bar.

Cons

Doesn't keep up with current operating systems. We are two generations behind Windows 10 (using Windows 7 Pro) so for providers who like to use tablets, it is difficult to view the patient information. Also, the patient portal is very poor and needs work.

For ease of use, if the patient portal functioned like other local medical practices and their EMR's, we would have a SUPERB system.

Pros

Easy to train. When looking for things, its simple to click and find. Easy to install. User friendly and the Health history portion of the portal works great for patients.

Cons

The patient Portal messaging DOES NOT WORK!!! The server time in Digichart is not actual time and it always makes an issue for us when trying to do Q/A because the time is incorrect. If you order labs from a comm encounter they fail in the interface. We use comm encounter all day!

Don't ever believe anyone who speaks in glowing terms about digiChart. It is cheap and easy to learn, but frequently very annoying to use. I finally got fed up with all the problems with digiChart and switched to Greenway-more expensive and more complicated, but much better. Switching from one EMR to another a real pain, but never regretted. Do not buy digiChart-you will regret it.

Pros

Easy to learn and less expensive that some of the other EMRS. Less input required to finish chart so can work through patients faster

Cons

Frequent crashes; frequently slow to respond, especially mid-afternoon; frequent compatibility issues with updates. Less input means less information available when you recall chart.

Looks good at first but then is awful. No upgrades over years. We have awesome data and it is as slow as Christmas.

Cons

Have had for over seven years and has progressively worsened. Changing to eCW but Digi would not give us a format of our electronic information that we could translate to a new system. They have us over a barrel. Run!

This is the second practice that uses Digichart. They mistakenly believe it to be the only OBGYN directed software. Not so. Expensive to license and keep. Mediocre but easy to learn interface. does print out OB forms in ACOG format. Very slow interface especially in the early pm. Customer support is almost nonexistent. Written only to work on Windows platform but even then only works well with IE version 5. it's 2016. really? Really crappy patient portal with medical questions to hard to understand for the layperson. Nonexistent mobile platform. Cannot use mobile devices such as iPads. When I looked at other competitors, not only were they cheaper but had way more functions and easier to use.

Pros

Easy interface to learn.

Cons

Cost
no fax capability
no patient education
horrible patient portal
no mobile platform

The attractive features of the system is that it was designed by Ob/Gyn's for Ob/GYN's. Initially the system worked well.

Likes Least

Very slow. Every time there is upgrade the system goes out of wack for a long time. It seems like the system administrators are overwhelmed by the government's new rules and regulations.

Recommendations

Have at least 3-4 different systems demonstrations. Don't get fooled because it is OB/GYN specific. I have a feeling that the companies overwhelmed and they cant keep up with all the changes in healthcare rules.

Valdosta Women’s Health Center, PC is a busy two-physician practice that was established in 1993. Management decided to implement an EMR in 2005 and a full time Microsoft Certified technician was hired to research and launch the EMR. A server-based EMR was purchased and installed, and chaos resulted. The EMR (Not digiChart) was immature and template-driven, and it had issues revery day that required contacting the vendor for support. The so-called technical support involved submitting a trouble ticket email that took up to 14 days allowed to correct. It took 24 clicks of the mouse for the physicians to sign off on a normal pap smear. Updates were offered at more cost. Our IT guy quit in despair. Management decided to abandon the old EMR and migrate to digiChart in 2007. The migration was painless and quick. We have never looked back. digiChart was designed by OB-GYNs for OB-GYNs, not by computer geeks. It is intuitive. Support personnel are friendly and quick to respond via a telephone call or email. User meetings attended were very helpful. The physicians love digiChart, and two other local OB-GYNs also moved their EMR to digiChart after seeing digiChart in action at the hospital. The antepartum record is instantly recognized nationwide, and several physicians have called our office to ask which EMR we use to produce the ACOG formatted antepartum record. digiChart is not perfect; nothing is. digiChart has grown and experienced growing pains. One episode involved slowness of operation that was challenging, but it's now corrected. You get what you expect, and the providers at VWHC expect digiChart to run smooth and quick - and digiChart meets or exceeds expectations nearly every time.

Likes Least

Upgrades are tough. But, it appears as though digiChart is following the MU lead, which is a challenge in and of itself

Recommendations

Check around. Use an EMR that was designed by physicians, not computer guys.
