Use Updox for e-faxing
Kareo for billing
I do not schedule with Practice Fusion, because I feel I do not like the process (the patient bascially asks if they can have an appointment at a certain time, and you have to respond-from my understanding).
I use Orchestra One for scheduling-approximately $30/month, it also sends text appt reminders two days in advanced, and one hour prior to appointment. There is also an app for your phone (although, there are a few glitches with the app). Patients can schedule online, or you can add them to the schedule. I am pretty happy with this, and my patients love the appoinmtent reminders.

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...
