New customer

Pros:
This software is open source, which gives me a lot of control to code it my way and I can easily customize it according to my requirements. I have the system stored on my servers, so whenever I face a database issue, I can easily work through it my own self. The best part is the ability to code and customize according to what you need.

Cons:
There isn’t anything that I can yet say about this software, and I also believe that the more you learn and use the software, the easier it becomes for you.

Easy to use

Pros:
This system is freely available as it is an open source software. The interface of this system is quite beautiful, and anyone would love it. The system is very easy to use, but if you are new to it you can use some orientation and then you’re good to go. This system is the way to go. It is amazing.

Cons:
The need to give out more videos or guides to the users so that they have a better idea of configuring the system and customizing as well.

Pros:
This system is pretty great and is easy to use as well. The system being open source is big plus point for the company and it brings a lot of opportunities. If they keep on working hard like this, they can easily take hold of the entire EMR market.

Cons:
They need to improve their security as it is an open source product, so I think they should invest more in cybersecurity.

Great system.

Pros:
This system is a keeper. Amazing system and you would definitely love it. You can easily verify the insurances through this system, which I know is something that everyone needs. Manoeuvring through the system is so easy, that you can never get lost in it. The representatives of this system are pretty good as they always come through whenever you need their help.

Cons:
There are a few times that we were unable to verify the insurances, and the reason for that has yet to be identified. Sometimes the system also goes down and you cannot do anything about it. The patient demographics have some unnecessary categories, which I would suggest that they remove.

OpenEMR

Pros:
The system had some really great features that it offered, and they are as follows: Demographics, Code Diagnostics, ICD9, ICD10, Billing, Import/Export, HIPPA Compliant, ONC certification. The EMR was pretty simple to use, and it wasn’t hard to understand it. Billing patients, making notes, scheduling, uploading charts and x-rays, keeping track of conditions and prescriptions, insurance tracking etc, was the main plus points of this system. It is simple and easy to use. The system is very convenient as well.

Cons:
All that I mentioned above feels like ancient history now, as things have stopped working the way it used to work. The product is open sourced so that’s a con for me. It’s calendar appointments and vitals aren’t that great either. They need to improve to get back in the game.
