EpicCare is a popular Electronic Health Record (EHR) choice for many practices, but it still does not compare to the Amazing Charts EHR when you stack them up side-by-side.
The journal Family Practice Management (FPM) publishes a biennial survey of EHR user satisfaction among family practice physician members of the AAFP. To determine physician satisfaction the study asked respondents to indicate their level of agreement with thirteen statements, including the key indicators of EHR quality listed below. Physicians were asked to report their level of agreement or disagreement using the scale Strongly Agree, Agree, Neutral, Disagree, Strongly Disagree.
Percentage (1) of respondents who agree or strongly agree with the following statement:
"I am highly satisfied with this EHR system."
"This EHR is worth the expense."
"Overall this EHR is easy and intuitive to use."
"Our EHR vendor provides excellent training and support."
"This EHR enables me to practice higher quality medicine than I could with paper charts."
