Practice Mate Software


 

Office Ally’s Practice Mate is a Web-based medical practice management system for small to midsized practices with multiple offices. It can be customized to fit the needs of any specialty and assists in digitizing many of the activities necessary to running a practice.

This system is HIPAA-compliant and can be combined with Office Ally’s EHR 24/7 software to fulfill Meaningful Use Stage 1 and 2 requirements.

Users can create appointments, manage a calendar and color-code time slots using the appointment scheduling module. Patients can also request appointments via Office Ally’s patient portal, Patient Ally. Health care professionals can log on to approve or deny appointment requests, and view forms that patients have completed before their scheduled appointment.

Practice Mate also includes a reporting module that allows users to search by name, type of insurance, tax ID and other identifying information. Reports generated by the system can also be downloaded by users and exported into Microsoft Excel.

Will continue billing though Practice Mate, we love it for our office...gets claims our fast and payment to us fast

Pros

How everything can be saved for billing and makes it go so much smoother, easy to add patients and easy to submit claims. Claims are processed very quickly!

Cons

Sometimes the billing shows a claim went successfully through, but then the insurance claim will say they never received a claim for a particular date of service. Has happened a lot.

Office Ally really needs to add and upgrade servers to meet the demands of its customers.

Pros

Low cost and intuitive system with features including interfaces with labs and imaging. Easy to use scheduling and EMR.

Cons

Consistently slow, and often completely unresponsive for long periods of time throughout the day. At peak times, the system experiences even more of a slow down.

Love the service and it's helped a lot with the business.

Pros

Easy to track claims. I love how there is a calendar that helps you understand when claims were submitted and when they were rejected.

Cons

A little hard to read rejected or processed claims. There needs to be some sort of portal.I'd like to see a list of all the claims.

Pros

It's cheap. The word cheap here represents all facets -- price, functionality, non-existent customer service. You get what you pay for.

Cons

- You have to sign up for each 'program' individually.
- The programs don't communicate with each other.
- While signing up for each program individually, you have to fax sheets. You will do this multiple times, have someone tell you they never got it, then give up and get another EHR. Then, they magically find your fax after 2 weeks, sign you up and send you a bill.
- While you are trying to sign up for everything, you will work with an awesome person with the payment processing/credit swiper who will sign you up and give you a good deal. However, once you give up on OfficeAlly and go with another EHR, the credit card people are rude and try to charge you a penalty for canceling your contract.
- As for functionality -- it's bare bones, lots of searching for what you want/need.
- Did I mention the down time??
- Ugh - stay away!

Pros

I like the ease of filing insurance, keeping up with client information and the reminder service. It was been a huge help that didn't hurt our bottom line.

Cons

Getting charged for an excess of Claims for a particular insurance provider. The software isn't always smooth to operate. It seems a little dated.

I found it somewhat awkward in design.

Pros

It provides an efficient clearing house for billing. The technical staff does attempt to assist your needs.

Cons

This software is not suited for mental health documentation. It is designed for medical offices. It lacks flexibility.

Functionality

Value for Money

It is so difficult to deal with this program. It seems like the creators just stacked amounts of data creating a horrific, time wasting, not biller friendly program. On many occasions, I've called to get help. Depending on who I get, I'll get just enough of the information to calm me down, and I usually have to call again to suck out more. If I need an "Expert" it's it's usually a wait of 2-5 days. Seriously, who has time to wait? On top of that, the system is always crashing, and extremely slow. Nothing seems to be easy about this program.

Pros

I can send an email message to the doctors.

Cons

Where do I begin.... There's not enough space or time.

Advice to Others

If you like treasure hunts, geography, and have lots and lots of time to locate where things are at, by all means this program is for you.

OfficeAlly takes inordinate time to use. There are not many fast ways to do anything. It is the opposite of the iPhone in that Apple dynamically removes the clutter when they improve features... OfficeAlly just seems to add features that have led to a overburdened, bogged down, convulted practice management software system.

Pros

Cheap monthly fee. They have their own clearing house. Some MU/PQRS features.

Cons

Slow. Much down time. No batch billing. EMR and Practice Mate back and forth activity wastes time.

Advice to Others

Use this if you are a slow practice and looking for a cheap solution to EMR.

Inexpensive, when many EHR systems cost tens of thousands of dollars

Likes Least

Takes about fifteen minutes to simply find a patient on the schedule and sign off on the exam notes.

Recommendations

This company took two software programs... scheduling and EHR... and never integrated them. So much time is wasted because of this.

It's free. Support is readily available. Once you have everything set up, submitting a claim is quick.

Some things are cumbersome to set up correctly, and the site isn't set up to easily find some things.

Recommendations

I don't tend to make recommendations involving software as I am a very low-tech person.
