Hello guys.

I'm really thankful for Craig who showed me practice fusion when we went to Colorado. I started my practice last year in October. when I came back  from Colorado I sat down for 5 minutes and I had emr!!! so far It has been working really good for me. I don't use specific practice mgt. I send superbills to my biller, who has access to emr and who charges me 6% has worked really good also. I am not a "techy" , I can not type without looking at the keyboard  and I hate templates!! but it has been very user friendly for me. I am sure I need to learn to use the system better. So far I can see 8-12 patients / day and finish my notes within 24 hrs. Greetings from COLD Florida ! !

Hello all,

I have been using Athena for over 4 years. It is quite expensive but very comprehensive.  They do my billing and posting as well as patient portal, etc. However I have issues with customer support lately so in the market to switch vendors. Two questions,  anyone love their emr/pm program?  Second, anyone switch after several years, how hard is it? That is one of the issues with this whole thing, we almost get stuck to keep the same one due to inertia...
