About OpenEMR

OpenEMR is an enterprise-level software package that can handle the most demanding workflows for any private practice. It can accommodate 42 different languages and has been the preferred EMR of the Peace Corp for over last five years. OpenEMR includes just about every major features a practice would need (scheduling, patient intake, patient lab requisition, bidirectional order integration) right out of the box. The system has a very comprehensive patient dashboard that will allow a physician to see all pertinent patient data at a glance — from the vitals checked during triage to the review of system performed by the nurse.

A full billing and accounting package is also included in the software, so no data has to be sent to a third party software system and then imported back. The system can generate an x12 file that can be sent to clearinghouses or directly to a payer. Import ERAs and distribute them to patients accounts. The system tracks A&R as well.

OpenEMR is customizable to your office needs on the fly, and OpenEMR is open to user requests for new form or a process features.

What do you like best about this product?

The user interface is easy to navigate. It was easy to get started once it was installed. I do not know how to program in the latest languages. So I had Once I learned how to use layout based forms properly, I found creating areas for unique data entry very easy and had fun adding to functionality and validity to the form (with help from Sherwin Gaddis, OpenEMR Developer).

What could be improved about this product?

Updating the Wiki pages. I believe if they were more up to date, it would be easier to learn how to customize. Having said that the community and administrators is responsive and supportive in answering questions and directing users to updated information.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

My biggest concern was being able to customize without having a strong technical background and experience in PHP, HTML, SQL, or database design. The Wiki directions are easy to follow for someone with a low technical background and if you can’t get something to work, there is help from the community. Having a good OpenEMR developer to help you out with technical support for features not readily available is helpful as well. This will save a lot of time and frustration and is a great investment.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

Customizing OpenEMR for a safety net clinic is my Doctor of Nursing Practice project. It allowed me to demonstrate the flexibility, reliability and usefulness of open-source systems to faculty and students at George Mason University. Due to OpenEMR’s ease of use, we will also use it as a platform to train nursing students in our Sim Lab. In the clinic, we will be able to capture and control patient data for improved clinical decisions and future research. Since most of the clinic’s funding is from research, we need access to unique data to answer research questions. The forms and structured field’s customization will allow capture of the data and having access to the database allows extraction and reporting as necessary. Another great feature is that OpenEMR is customizable and will be a great platform for our Health Administration & Policy students to practice data management and health informatics.

What do you like best about this product?

I was very satisfied with the product’s functionality and the ability of Mr. Sherwin Gaddis of Open Med Practice to design an electronic blood pressure alert and reminder with notification capabilities within the vital sign flowsheet for the clinicians. The EHR will now alert the clinicians and providers of elevated blood pressures when relevant. The EHR allows individual user specific customization which help to minimize data input, thus increasing ease of use and flexibility. The product provided reminders for screening tests and guideline-based interventions.

What could be improved about this product?

I think providing more recent updated videos on how the product works and the different fuctions might be helpful.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

My main concern was whether the software would be easy to customize to the specific patient population we serve and how easy it would be to train the providers and clinical staff to use it. Although these were some of my concerns, they were easily dashed when I started to work with Mr. Gaddis. He provided excellent support to me and was quite diligent in taking my vision and creating the tools and interventions I needed within the EHR.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

One business problem that OpenEMR will assist in solving is the ease at which the clinic will be able to view and query data on quality of care and implement necessary interventions and changes. Another problem that we are solving is ensuring that providers consistently utilize evidence-based guidelines when providing care to patients. The ability to be able to link to the guideline-based protocol interventions will benefit the end-users of OpenEMR. Mr. Gaddis has helped me solve this problem for the clinic.
