I started using Medisoft in 1999 when I first started but I personally think it has really tanked over the years as the company has changed hands.  The direction they are going just scares me, but it certainly still has some redeeming qualities.  I have never used CollaborateMD with an actual client but I did try the demo and it was one of the least user friendly programs I have ever used.  I hated the extra steps necessary just to search for patients.  Maybe the actual program is different from the demo but the demo was enough to scare me away.  Right now my favorite is TotalMD but I'm continually trying new programs since I use so many different ones for my clients.

TotalMD is similar to Medisoft. The product is not as mature as Medisoft, yet it has many strengths including strong technical support and interconnectivity to other products and electronic services. For users that prefer a web-based solution, TotalMD also offers a very reasonably priced ASP model.

I always go back to Kareo and Collaborate MD, two things I look for in a software vendor is support and their ability to STAY on top in such an ever changing industry. CollaborateMD and Kareo BOTH engage their users using social media and some of their articles are awesome. Recently CollaborateMD announced a new version and It def has me looking. http://www.ereleases.com/pr/collaboratemd-introduce-central-business-intelligence-feature-cloud-software-january-14-96622  Because I do MORE consulting than billing reports are absolutely essential and this looks very interesting indeed.

We have members that use both of these softwares and I've yet to hear any negative feedback. Not that I'm negating any of the others we discussed (aside from Medisoft <wink> ) Just these two always stay on my top list to watch.

That looks like it will be awesome.  One of my biggest complaints with TotalMD is their custom report writer is not easy to use.  It is awesome in that you can make any report you want but it is not easy for the normal person like me to do it.  Although there are tons of reports in the system, if I need anything really custom then it has to be done by TotalMD directly and that is kind of a bummer but the advantage is they can do anything.  I would love to have something that would allow me to easily do my own custom reports.  Now if only the rest of the CollaborateMD software was any good.  In my opinion CollaborateMD is one of the least fast/user friendly programs I have tried.
