Ultracharts is a practice management software from American Medical Software that contains features needed to manage operations of solo practices with a single workstation and the enterprise-level clinics with multiple sites and specialties.
The integrated Practice Management system is comprised of a certified EMR with e-prescribing, billing, financial management, appointment scheduling, and patient portal. Each of these modules can be purchased separately or together, allowing practices to build a solution that meets their unique needs.
The electronic medical records module offers a vast library of customizable templates to help improve documentation speed and accuracy while also reducing costs and improving patient care. The EMR module reduces scanning by providing laboratory integration and digital image management. The appointment-scheduling module includes open encounter tracking throughout the practice for streamlined office workflow, and batch and real time eligibility verification. The billing and financial management module provides the tools necessary for speedy claim filing/tracking, practice analysis, revenue reporting, and is ICD-10 ready with ICD-9 to ICD-10 transitioning features.

I want to update my review which was admittedly written during a very stressful morning. After a long discussion with AMS my gripes were addressed. To give credit where credit is due - the software gets the job done for sure. My biller likes it very much and it is easy to learn. I am more than happy to endorse AMS and can even be reached if necessary. Lexington Medical Associates, NYC, NY.

This type of software system was merely brought into the play for a Physician on our Board of Directors who is gradually getting ready to retire from active practice. Trying to properly communicate and execute his administrative duties in rural Virginia from his diverse travel agenda--for both leisure and Board of Director engagements was distracting on all fronts. Our IT team took the initiative to recommend this software after we had to rearrange Board Meeting Agendas again due to his need to trouble shoot missed appointments and needed prescriptions. Our Chief Information Officer took the lead and directly focused on the e-prescribing. It has been a good eight months now and only minor glitches. Going paperless is a hinderance and naturally causes anxiety for certain mindsets. Seeing and utilizing active patient portals on the other hand, sold him on keeping the system mainstream as he finds suitable recommendations for his remaining patients. Now that his secretary has inputted all billing maters into the system she can now seamlessly work from home. As time draws to an end, billing will not be a mystery left for collections to figure out. All outstanding matters are clear. The secretary has also started to take advantage of the integrate office work flow scheduler and has dedicated her open time to the administrative needs of a new doctor.
The main complaint back to us was the cut off only 5 computers under the small business plan. Now that the founding doctor is going into full retirement but will be still acting as a mentorship or emergency needed basis, the office has a need to included 7 full-time PCs. The other draw back issue was desire for using in a iOS device for with a current imaging system. Unfortunately, the two cannot run on the same device.
When testing the effectiveness of patient management software programs, create full complete history's from actual examples the doctors and administrators will recall. This ensures the data and codes translate correctly, the user and system align with billing matters and most importantly the user will trust the system to hold all patient information if a concrete historical sample can be shared. Do not waste time testing the WebBased version errors will occur that the user will never encounter. When you go paperless the system needs to live in a secure PC.

I like their accessibility and knowledge of their product. They are very helpful if you're having a problem making calls and getting answers to your situation.
The only problem is the wait time on answering phones. However, it's worth it, because they spend the time to fix your problem when it's your turn.
Try it and experience the ease of billing and coding. It's very simple and works for our practice.

AMS has amazing customer service. Not only is their product great, but the support they provide us is outstanding. They are always available to walk us through something in the system or troubleshoot an issue. We love the reports that can be created.
Some of our providers feel that the e-scribe module is down frequently. It would also be extremely helpful to be able to track RVU and WRVUs in the system.
If you are looking for software, you can stop! AMS is it! They have appointment scheduling, EMR, and an outstanding Billing Module. If you can think of a report, AMS can create it.
Tara from Ahmad & Rana Pediatrics Ltd
I have been using AMS in our pediatric private group practice for almost 4 years now. AMS is a great EMR, it is pediatric friendly which is very hard to find in an EMR. The templates are customizable which was a great plus for our practice needs. AMS has everything we need from scheduling to the EMR to the billing and practice management system. The IT help is great, the people who answer the phones are very friendly and personable which makes dealing with issues fairly easy. As with any EMR we have had issues; however, AMS is always willing to listen and do what they can to fix any problems we might run across. I have sucessfully attested and received payment for Meaningful Use for the past 3 years using this software. We love it and would highly recommend it to anyone searching for EMR software.

AMS is hands down the best software you can buy. We love the reports that it gives us. AMS allows you to see your practice at all angles and the billing module one of the best in industry. As a billing agency we have worked with many softwares. We have had many of our practices switch to AMS and they increased their revenue by being able to better manage their receivables. If you have a question, the customer service support is phenomenal. You never have to worry when you call as you know AMS will work to answer your questions. I can not say enough good things about them!

Moving from a previous software that was not very friendly with no support, over to AMS, was like night and day. Easy to use and the customer service, or tech support is friendly and very helpful. AMS MEDICAL MANAGMENT SYSTEM (BILLING MODULE) has made my life a whole lot easier.
