    Pros

    The concept of an open source electronic health records brings a world of opportunities to this company and if they continue executing they may able to chip away at the available market share.

    Cons

    this product could use a considerable investment in cybersecurity and has considerable competition from other cloud providers such as athenahealth.

    Overall, it can do a lot and has a high amount customization potential. It's in the best price range. It takes a lot of time and know-how to get it to work... in the end it just wasn't for me.

    Pros

    Well the biggest pro is it's free, which is why spent extra nights and weekends trying to set it up and make it work. It is very vast and has the potential to do just about anything.

    Cons

    It is geared more towards a standard medical model and not alternative options. Customer support isn't that great but you can pay for a better one. I felt as if I needed an IT/computer background in order understand and get the most out of it. I was using the latest which I think was a downgrade from an older version a colleague of mine has.

    Overall a great system, with great reps!

    Pros

    You can verify insurance through the system. Easy to navigate. Good representatives when help is needed.

    Cons

    Sometimes we are not able to verify insurances or the system goes completely down. Has several unnecessary categories on patient demographics.

    I like to be self-sufficient. I have used OpenEMR for over two years and find that it suits my needs perfectly. That having been said, I am a specialist and have had to develop many of my own forms and other customizations before the product was directly useful to me. I have tended to view that more as a hobby than an impediment but for those who are not so inclined it appears that there are vendors about who would be happy to do this work for you, presumably for a price. Alternatively, the help forums are active and helpful, although one must know how to define and ask the question before the answer will be of benefit.

    Pros

    The price is wonderful! The product works, although not necessarily right out of the box if you have special needs. Flexibility is great. Freedom from support costs is gratifying (although it does require one to become proficient to the desired level if you wish to avoid all support costs). Fancy equipment not required. Works on multiple platforms.

    Cons

    There is a learning curve, especially if customizations are in order. My suspicion is that this would be relatively quick for primary care practices. Specialists might require additional customization that will either need to be done in-house or contracted out. This is not as much a con as simply a fact. I'd much rather have an open source product that I can customize myself than a proprietary one-size-fits-all product for which I can't access the code and have to keep running back to the mother company every time I want to make a minor (or major) change.
