It fulfills our needs.

Pros:
I was searching for a way to get away from using paper charts, and OpenEMR was exactly what I was looking for. Moreover, I needed something more durable that would help me to maintain proper records.

Cons:
It would have been preferable if it could update patients automatically via email.

New user.

Pros:
The software's simplicity allows you to customize it to your own needs. EMR This program allows me greater leverage over the EMR system, and since the data is saved on my computer, I can work around any database problems.

Cons:
I can't say I dislike anything about the app right now. Learning the app, I agree, requires time. It gets better the longer you use it.

Great Usability.

Pros:
There are a lot of features and personalization, as well as a range of decent documentation and a friendly support team.

Cons:
I would have liked it if the trial time had been longer. It was difficult to configure the device before buying it, but I believe that if I had asked, I might have received some extra time from their team.

Great value for money.

Pros:
It was simple to customize this booking application to meet my own requirements, and I love how you can personalize the look of the sites to make it your own.

Cons:
Almost all can be found here. This program appeals to me greatly.

Powerful system.

Pros:
With a large but well-organized configuration menu, several functions can be allowed to add functionality or disabled to simplify the system. When run on suitable hardware, the user interface and server are extremely smooth. As a hosted framework, it can be deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which is incredibly fast and scalable.

Cons:
Either a difficult or costly third-party application or the use of a separate device is needed for the electronic prescription feature. I tried to use one of the available third-party e-prescribing interfaces, other than that it did not work for me.

User-friendly software.

Pros:
The code is open source, has a wonderful user interface, and is really simple to operate with little guidance.

Cons:
There aren't enough videos and illustrations to help users configure and customize the program.

Good functionality.

Pros:
A lot of people said that one of the benefits of this software is that it is online. I accept, but just secondary to the fact that it is much more customizable than most EMRs. While some understanding of setup and maintenance is needed, I find our customer support representative and his team to be extremely attentive and skilled.

Cons:
The first and only possible disadvantage is the need for either information or IT assistance. The collaboration of OpenEMR experts makes this part even better, as previously said.

Open source EMR.

Pros:
The fact that it is an open-source electronic health record opens up endless possibilities for this business, and if they keep performing, they will be able to consume the market share that is currently available.

Cons:
This software could benefit from significant cybersecurity development, as it faces stiff competition from many other cloud services such as athenahealth.

EMR Review.

Pros:
The software is easy to use and manage. Patients can check-in quickly and easily. Notes are simple to keep track of.

Cons:
When attempting to validate insurance, there are several problems that may cause a patient's check-in to be delayed. Overall, the issue is quickly overcome.
