My practice is located in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. When you walk into my office it’s very quiet. We have soft music playing in the front and you can get a cup of coffee or a bottle of water. There’s usually not much of a wait time unless there’s been an emergency and there might not be anyone else waiting there. If you’re not feeling well, I have you sit in the massage chair, put your head down and turn the light off so you can relax for a little while. We try to make it a calm, peaceful environment. I have been practicing Internal Medicine in the greater Sarasota, Florida area for four and a half years. I care for patients ranging in age from 18 to 103-years-old. It’s a diverse population comprised of a lot of old and young people with very active lifestyles. I enjoy the breadth of Internal Medicine. My practice has transformed into a hybrid practice where I have some patients who are what I call the ‘regular’ patients and some patients who are ‘concierge’ patients. I call it my wellness program, because it really focuses a lot on prevention and time. I used an EMR at a previous practice. I had several ‘must haves’ on my EMR shopping list. I wanted something that was attainable to get information from home. I was looking for a web based program so that I would have 24/7 access. It was quite important to me with my type of practice to be able to do that on the weekends. Previously, I had a very cumbersome EMR that you had to sign in and have a secure citrix to access it. WRS is so much easier because even if I’m at home I can pull it up on the computer. I looked at 10 or 15 different EMRs initially based on price and what they had to offer. And then I looked at doing billing, scheduling, and having everything all-in-one, rather than getting different components of a program. I liked WRS initially mostly because of the web based part. I think it’s nice from the standpoint that I have electronic capability from anywhere and also the patient portal and the billing and that it’s all tied in together. I tend to like to sit at my desk and talk to patients without typing. The nice thing is that at the end of that visit I can put that information in and I feel that I capture the charges and accurately reflect what the visit was much more than previously with paper charts or with other EMRs. When patients come into my practice I made up an instruction sheet on how to use the EMR to its fullest. They like being able to update their medication list, being able to make their clipboard and provide their history because I tell them to do that if they are going to see other physicians. They really like the patient portal for prescription refills, to request appointments, and to update me with information. A lot of e-mails come in though the patient portal. They like to let me know that they got their reminder for their appointment the next day. Any patient can e-mail through WRS. They can get Rx refills and ask questions. Patients in my wellness program can e-mail me 24/7 through my personal e-mail account. I think it’s very important that we stay in touch and that they don’t wait for the annual visit to bring a list of 12 things to discuss. Having that ‘give and take’ cuts down on anxiety and also keeps the patient well informed. Now we’re using the fax queue and it has significantly decreased the amount of ink and paper that I am using and increased efficiency in that we are not grabbing the paper chart, flipping it, scanning it, etc. That’s wonderful and it’s so much easier. It has significantly improved the workflow as well as the accuracy of making sure things are put in the right chart. I checked out WRS with a local biller who uses the WRS Billing Module. I particularly like that I put in the charges at the end of the day as I do my note. I can e-mail her and say, ‘I don’t know which code to use for this’ or ‘please note that this might need to change.’ It’s very flawless and seamless without phone calls and faxes. It works very well. If you send a ticket, WRS gets back to you. A lot of the updates WRS has done over the last couple of years have been very useful. Recently, there have been some updates in the medication queue that have been quite useful. I do appreciate those updates. The updates really do help a lot of the different types of provider.

Good yet could be great

Overall a good program and definitely a good value for the money. The company is responsive and pleasant to deal with. A moderate learning curve. Worth looking at yet as with any software you have to figure out how it may help or hinder your workflow. I give it a 7.5 out of 10. With the improvements the company is working on it may be better in the next few months (or not).

Pros

Easy to see summaries of patient information and to pull down test results. Very nice company to deal with. Company dedicated to improving the software. Patients can see lab results that come into the program in "real time". Often they will beat me to seeing the results. Patient portal. Although we didn't use it, the program will call your patients 2 days before their visit to remind them. (We prefer calling on our own-yet this can be a big labor saver) Likewise we didn't use the practice management tools yet they are available and integrated into the program (this includes billing).

Cons

Task manager/results review section needs improvement. I could not send comments either to patients or to my staff without going through 3 screens. I found this time consuming and since I like to feed back on results to patients it was just not helpful. In addition, in the task manager you have to go through 2 screens to clear it from the task manager section. Ordering labs and consults and xrays was initially a chore, yet once I spent a Saturday night looking up all the CPT codes and then saving them into different sections my staff and I became pretty proficient at it and actually found ordering easy to do (so actually a PRO as well as a Con, with the con being I had to figure out that shortcut on my own). Prevention section is nonexistent. You must create it yourself which I found difficult. I did not understand why the company did not at least load the US Preventative Services Task Force recommendations based on age and then let you edit from there. It would be much more helpful.

Not an EMR for Pediatrics

Pediatrics (and maybe other specialties) beware that this system is not user friendly for pediatrics/family units and seems to increase the workload for my staff. I feel that lots of system "connections" are not correct and await a fix.

Pros

My practice went from having 2 systems - one for EMR and one for the practice management. I do like that the 2 systems are all into one. However, this is about it. I do regret almost everyday that I went with this system for my pediatric office. I do not take any state insurances so this system seems to have all the bells/whistles to help with state mandated rules but my practice does not use all that info.

Cons

Not very user friendly for pediatrics. There is no creation of family accounts - we have to register each child in the family unit individually along with making sure all financial information gets to the parent for each child. This is the most inefficient way and cause more workload for my staff. The "task" aka messaging system is cumbersome and not user friendly either since it only alerts that have messages and not the patient related tasks - I have to remember throughout the day to check my "tasks" aka messages. There seems to be many systems that do not work properly - the system auto creates prior auths for all my controlled meds even though never needed, I am still waiting (1 month now) for the autoposting of EOBs to happen (still paying for it though of course), some staff have problems signing on and permissions seem to come and go at will of the system - constantly having to take time to fix this. The support is good and responds quickly but lots of answers are overall this is the way it is - I can "turn off" the function if I want. Overall not a great experience with this system and again regret getting it. Unfortunately I am stuck with it since company states that I would have to buy out the contract if I want to switch - small, independent office that can't afford that so we continue to curse the system and see patients.

Reasons for Choosing WRS Health

I did choose WRS Health due to the functionality available and the price was all inclusive (if it works) for our small, independent practice.

November 2012

I opened Delavan Pediatrics in Delavan, Illinois in August 2012 after working at a hospital practice for four years. I draw patients from four or five county areas and I am interested in providing patients with integrative, natural and homeopathic treatment options as well as traditional medications. I did a lot of research and I narrowed my search to a few options--Amazing Charts, Practice Fusion and WRS. Initially I was unfamiliar with web based EMRs. I was looking more at the local server based systems. It made more sense for me to keep my start up expenses down. The web based system became very attractive and it made a lot of sense to me. I have a small office and I don’t have a lot of space to store charts or to have a big server. With a web based system I could login at home. Being the only physician, I am on call 24/7 and having access at home or wherever I am is very important. WRS is a very affordable system, especially when starting out. There’s just a lot of bang for the buck. WRS was not the cheapest, but it was the best and its features made it worth it. It really came down to an easy choice. WRS was more robust, it had more of what I needed, and it had the flexibility to change if I need it to. I work with an R.N. and one office staffer. I needed an EMR that would make my charting easy. I’ve used some of the HPI templates that came with WRS and I’ve modified some of them to my own liking. What I liked about WRS was the ability to customize and build and make those changes while I’m documenting. Ninety-nine percent of my scripts are sent via e-prescribing. My patients like not having to carry a script and knowing that by the time they get to the pharmacy, the pharmacist has already received the script. There are checks within WRS that pop up, such as warnings, Do you want to do this, there is an interaction? Are you sure about this dosing? I am able to look and make sure that I have everything right. I really liked WRS patient portal and being able to communicate with patients electronically and for them to be able to access the system to update medical information or to schedule appointments. With the portal, they can just get on to schedule their own appointment and send a message for us to see in the morning. I was really looking for an EMR with the ability for the charting and the billing to be connected easily—a seamless connection and that’s what WRS offers. I like the integration. With WRS you register the patient and you do your chart and when I go to create a claim it populates the claim form automatically and there are just a few modifications that I have to make. All of the insurance information and codes that I put in the note prepopulate and that saves a lot of time.
