arrow
By Jennifer Bresnick | May 7, 2013

EHR vendors with low numbers of attestations for eligible ambulatory providers generally have a higher average satisfaction score than the large corporations we’ve all come to know such as Centricity, eClinicalWorks, and Epic. Rated on a scale of 1 to 5, relatively low-use products such as ChartMaker, Praxis EMR, and ABELMed scored 3.82 and above, while Allscripts hovered between 2.9 and 3.2, and Cerner clocked in at 2.94.

arrow

George Eleftheriades - Oct. 13, 2010
