Office Practicum Software


Office Practicum by Connexin Software was built by physicians to provide an integrated electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solution. The system offers appointment scheduling, clinical documentation management, comprehensive exam room functionality and billing.

It's noteworthy how many aspects of the system are geared towards the treatment of children, including several growth chart options, such as Down’s Syndrome and preemie-specific growth curves. Templates are included for school and camp forms, with over 175 templates for “sick visits.” Vaccine forecasting allows doctors to keep track of when vaccines are due for their patients, with prompts and notifications to schedule appointments in advance.

Office Practicum has been used for more than 20 years in small to large medical practices, as well as integrated health systems. Office Practicum has received several awards, including Complete EHR Certification for 2014 Meaningful Use, 2011 PCMH Prevalidation by NCQA, and the Surescripts White Coat of Quality in 2011 and 2013.

OP review

Overall, my second favorite EMR system in all of my clinics. It's a little dated, but still easy to use.

Pros

I use OP for one of my clinics. It's somewhat dated and not the easiest to use, but it's more tolerable than some of the older software. The patient chart is organized into logical categories, just like Epic - Medications section where you fill out prescriptions, Allergies, etc. Billing is a breeze.

Cons

I would personally have combined the Allergies, PMH, and Problems section together so there's less clicks. Like all EMRs, there's a lot of unnecessary clicking involved, but it's not too bad.

Great for Pediatric Practices

The pre training was great!

Pros

IT is extremely pediatric friendly, There is a lot of good support.There is a support staff that you can reach through telephone, email or chat along with a list serve with a lo of other offices to so how every one does things or is there is an easier way then what you are doing. The software is very user friendly and the report modules are great. We have not even used all that is available such as the MU product and the Portal which I have heard are good too. Yesaly conferences are a great way to meet others on the program and have great classes to pick up new ideas and learn of changes.

Cons

Billing reports were a little harder to get used to. Our billing person has no problem but did take a little training.

The seemless, intuitive solution for medical practitioners

I would highly recommend this to hospitals that handle large number of patients annually.

Pros

The software has a very friendly interface that enables quick entry of information of patients and other records.
The software makes it easy to enter and retrieve health records of large number of patients quickly and easily.

Cons

Well, everything has its downside. There's just a small hitch in that it's abit slow on my computer. Am not sure of its just the speed of my machine or its the software.

Amazing

Pros

Very easy to learn. The learning curve is way better to compare to its competitors. Simple, easy to use, user-friendly, fast and efficient.

Cons

Need more support articles and better tech support. They are doing okay but compared to the actual product it deserves better support system.

I do not recommend it

Pros

All of your medical records and patient information will be in one place, you can also look up charts and graph.

Cons

Technical support is bad, they never know how to solve your issue, they close the tickets without giving a solution to your problem.

Absolutely phenomenal!

Pros

I worked a while back at a small pediatricians office and had the chance to work with this great software! Me, being new, I was a little terrified when It came to this sort of things but this is as simple as it gets. It's very user-friendly program and eventually I caught on pretty fast!

Cons

The only issue I encountered at the beginning was the tech department wasn't as resourceful as I thought it would be. I had a glitch on my user account and had to wait a while for them to get back.

Horrible. You will Loose money!

None. I really like VERY VERY little about this software.

Pros

I do like the fact that you can drag and drop an appointment on the scheduling screen. That is really about it.

Cons

I HATE the call center for your issues. They LITERALLY never know how to fix a thing. They will close a case without an actual answer. You will get a link to a description of what the report is. Not how to fix an issue. The amount of clicks it takes to get anything printed is absurd. The rx writing is absurd. Your nursing staff should be able to send a refill on a chronic med without an issue but this system makes it impossible. They have LOTS of glitches that they NEVER know how it happened or how to fix it. They will say " well we need to see your work flow to recreate the problem". Its a glitch you can't recreate it. The owner is extremely rude and hard to deal with. We have had this system for 6 months and are still not seeing a good number of patients. The billing portion of this system is a complete nightmare. They have sooooo many places to look for charges and so many reports that are all completely different with completely different information on them that should overlap. I can't warn you enough to STAY AWAY!

"This EMR was designed by a pediatrician, and works beautifully for the way pediatricians practice.

Pros

Simply the best and most comprehensive features available anywhere, OP  comes loaded with over 200 pediatric-specific "sick visit' templates, immunization forecasting, electronic school and camp forms along with pediatric developmental assessments, surveys and disease-specific action plans.
I've used OP for 16 years, and can say with confidence that  it is designed specifically for pediatrics , with tools pediatricians need to both keep kids healthy and improve quality of care."

Cons

Hands down the best of the best for pediatric offices. OP is so user friendly and works around your practice.

Great product, however could do with more functionality

Pros

Stable and secure platform. The platform gives you a springboard but needs a bit of tweaking and configuration to get it right. It is the amount of fixing and configuration. But this could be a good thing in the sense it is tailored to needs.

Good for my front office staff

Pros

I like the this is so great for my staff to speak with my clients. Having a streamlined product helps us get people in and out, but most of all, happy.

Cons

Nothing really, just like that it works, as always the price could be lowered, but that's always the case.

I use this software for our pediatricians office.

Pros

I like that our records are all safely in one place. I can look up charts and graphs easily. I can see changes and comments from the staff.

Cons

It is hard to navigate and a little clunky. It is very basic and not pleasing to the eye. Otherwise, it serves its purpose.

Office Practicum is really a user friendly EHR!

Pros

I like that it is user friendly and it is specifically pediatric based. The support has been good however busy at times. I love the great tips and helpfulness from our rep, from the physician listserv and the conference. I feel like the software makes it easy to keep track of what you have outstanding and to follow up on messages, labs, superbills, etc.

Cons

I do think it is hard sometimes to get the support on more involved issues. When I call for something simple (to IT but not to me) the are quick to get it fixed but when I have a long standing issue I feel like I don't hear back for awhile. That being said I can usually get help when needed.

Pediatric Bliss

I have been using OP for about 20 years now and have watched it grow and change like any child from infancy to adulthood, and this program has matured to an invaluable tool for pediatric practices across the country.

Pros

This is one of the easiest programs I have ever used. The point and click on most screens has made a computer dummy like me a genius when it comes to doing my job, or even helping out in areas of the program that are not in my every day job description. Entering payment, doing diagnostic testing in house or sent out to the lab, exam notes and prescriptions have become easier and quicker plus more legible. The program helps track tasks which need to be done when children come in for visits so nothing can be forgotten, vaccines history is available so appointments can be made within the correct time frame to the child to receive them so visits are not lost on early scheduling. This program, if used to it's fullest potential can be a doctors' dream come true.

Cons

There are very few cons to this program, but with all computer generated software, there is the occasional update that doesn't go well. When that happens, support at OP is usually on top of it and a fix is done asap, after all computers are only as good as the programmer and we are all human.

Office Practicum delivers

This overall is a great program.

Pros

This is a pediatric software. The designers have built-in designs that are tailored to meet the demands of many pediatric offices. As times and requirements from multiple agencies change, the designers are quick to meet these new challenges. It is easy to use. We have trained new doctors, nurses, front office with no problems. It also has ways to keep confidentiality matters under control. We are able to do everything that we need to do on the software. The designers are prompt to handle problems and prompt to respond to new requirements including requirements, it seems, from the state level for each of the states. We also use the program for billing purposes, and have had no problems with the billing end of things. You can have your own design features added easily and make your own templates for almost everything. Plus, making templates is very user-friendly

Cons

Some of the things we need to do on the software comes at an additional price. For example, if you want to be storing on the cloud or you want the software to send emails of upcoming appointments to patients. Sometimes there are a lot of clicks that seem could be decreased. Extra clicks is time consuming. There are other things that could improve workflow as well which would also improve time consumption.

Woefully under designed and full of quirks that are not documented. Very poor if you want to do Meaningful Use.

Pros

Simple
Low cost fee for software and installation
Adequate training materials
Friendly staff
Adequate support

Cons

Weak product with many glitches that surprise you at every turn.
Lacks many features that most larger companies provide.
The low cost of the software and install will be offset by large amounts of time to make it work.
We had to add staff when transitioning off a state-of-the-art system
Beware of internet glitches

Review of Office Practicum - Pediatric EMR

Pros

1) OP is designed specifically for outpatient pediatrics and thus is the best pediatric EMR on the market.
2) Best Immunization algorithm and always quickly updated to reflect ACIP recommendations.
3) Have found support very responsive and continued improvements on support response as OP has grown

Cons

Challenges with integration to hospital based systems / clinically integrated networks, but I don't think this is unique to OP and is something that OP is working on.
