I have been training staff on Netsmart/Allscripts for going about 5-6 years- was part of implementation team at one agency. Would NOT recommend.

Pros

Can document in home without internet connection-like the scales feature in clinical monitoring-but hard to get staff to use b/c so many tabs

Cons

Synch time excessive -not intuitive-upgrade information comes at last minute and labor intensive- NOT easy to train new staff on.

We currently switched to DeVero when DeVero was acquired from Netsmart. Netsmart just could not give us what we wanted. I have to say they tried but in the end were unsuccessful and they let us move to DeVero

Pros

Customer Service
Sally Borel
Ability to create physician orders from certain parts of the patient's chart
do not need to be connected to wifi to use, only to synch

Cons

Must synch- not live or web based
Expensive! Must have a license for each user
alot of updates which are costly to us as we need to have our IT company facilitate these downloads
not user friendly
can not fax from the software- need to print and send

This software leads to over a 50% attrition rate for a home health care company I contracted with. The model is simple: give away a free version with an almost intentionally poorly designed interface that is completely counterintuitive and goes against the most basic principals of software interface design. Then charge for "tech support" for implementation. Then sell the data sets that are more valuable than the person's time who put them in.

Pros

Not having to use it for more than 2 weeks.

Cons

The completely counterintuitive interface.

Advice to Others

Don't waste your time.

Pros

The feature I liked most in using Allscripts was the ability to switch back and forth from one division to another of the company without having to log into another site.

Cons

The worst part of Allscripts was having to sync the data at least twice daily and nothing being real time. Often during the syncing process something would go wrong and often documentation would be lost.

I find the software to be very poorly written and not user free.

Pros

There is nothing I like about this software

Cons

It is very clunky. Poorly organized and you have to do way too many clicks to do your charting. There is no way to see what time previous visits occurred, you have go to through too many steps to get the correct visit template to come up, you have to go to two separate screens just to start a visit.

Pros

The great pro about Allscripts is that the software is HIPPA safe. This software is trustworthy in that aspect and alleviates daily pressures for doctors and nurses who use it. This aspect also benefits the patients in the same way. The overall functionality of the program works very well and takes the space and time out of large file systems.

Cons

The biggest con of this software is the "status board" and its' lack of ability to automatically refresh. I may miss a critical piece of information due to forgetting to refresh the app. Another con presents itself in the software updates of the product. Frequent glitches usually always occurs in the event of a software update.

use every day to order patient tests

Pros

You are able to go in and put notes on orders or visits. It is easy to go back and find the history of a patient.

Cons

It takes a while for the program to communicate with the lab system. It takes a while to understand all the buttons/tabs
