OpenEMR, not Dead Yet...

    A commercial EMR's blog trying to discredit an open source alternative? Seems like wishful thinking to me. OpenEMR does everying we need and then some. And although our practice has no interest in the MU2 Certification, we'll be happy to help fund the effort. OpenEMR isn't going anywhere.

    Awesome responses by Tony and Brady. OpenEMR-bashing by competitors just demonstrates the traction that the project has gathered in recent years and that it's a force to be reckoned with.

    So whenever one refuses to practice the spirit/concept of open source and collaboration; let them pout, take there ball and go home...........

    A perfect and fitting blog post from Fred Trotter

    I was concerned to see that only two medical practices attested using openEMR last year. Can someone tell me I'm wrong or tell me why so few people attested?

    I'm just curious and worried...

    Thanks,

      That's incorrect for a couple of reasons. Last report I saw for 2012 was
      more like 25 OpenEMR users, I had 5 of my customers attest and get $, and
      there are at least 10 versions of OpenEMR under other brand names that have
      MU cert status either as "white label" rebranding or under their own test
      certification.

    Ed,
    Instead of worrying, consider reading these articles and help your clients attest. The last article is geared for Ophthalmology, but 95% of it applies to other specialties as well. The deadline for 2013 attestation is March 31, 2014.

    Also consider financial support of Meaningful Use Stage II Certification. Can't attest for 2014 if the software is not certified. The Donate button is found here.

    The idea that the healthcare incentive improves patient care is absolutely ludicrous. It requires many hours of the doctor's time which would otherwise go to patient care. Not to mention staff resources. The monetary compensation is negligible in light of the true costs. We decided that it isn't worth the hassle.

    I know of quite a few physicians who have attested, or will be attesting in the first quarter of 2014 using OpenEMR.
    That being said, David's post above is 100% correct, the $$ the federal government gives out, are not enough to cover the cost of any proprietary EHR system, but they will more than cover the costs for a very nice installation of OpenEMR customized to the practice's needs.

      Would you consider phoning those physicians, asking them to support Meaningful Use Certification Stage II and directing them to the home page?

    The quote below is Tweetable... may we?
