Awesome Richard!  This is one of the most salient points made on threads regarding EHR software.  This is the nightmare that most, if not all, providers have often.  And for several reasons.  Patients HATE when the doctor is looking at the screen and not them, and the information they have on screen is only as good as the data entry was.  I've worked both ways, and have stayed with paper.  I know we'll have to eventually start to put all the info into an EHR program, but I will retain the paper backup.

I'm with you guys, and not only for my clients sake but for my own family. I have had two ALMOST majorly critical mistakes with my daughters EHR and to that effect in my state (and in all other states) patients can "OPT OUT" w/out penalties effecting their health care decision making. My family has opted out of any EHR and I don't plan to change that any time soon. I DO not want my doctor looking at his IPAD or laptop when discussing my health. Here's a question to ask your physician " If I opt out, which I am legally allowed to do, will that effect the care I'm given by your facility?"  Love that question, courtesy of my attorney. I did not make that decision based ONLY on the mistakes made in my daughters chart, but also taking into consideration many of my own clients and they seem to have the same opinion. I have some that opted out of govt plans or plan to and I have others who plan to still keep paper. No law exists saying they can't and many many providers in private practice are still old school and don't trust technology.  HEY the CIA and FBI websites along with the white house infrastructure has been compromised on many occasions, you think there is such thing as sure security? The middle east has been the biggest culprit on technology hacking and well I'm not going to rely on my govt to keep my information safe.   PERSONALLY.. I think we'll see more delays with mandatory EHR.. I just know it. The govt has a history of declaring rules/regs and when they see all the loopholes they have to close up delay is inevitable. I'm not saying that if you have to comply, not to comply, I'm simply saying that I listen to my clients on this issue and guarantee them MY own backup and record retention. I've not had a problem.

doctors are not going to hand over their livelihood to someone working out of their suitcases. The doctors are looking for full services, including credentialing, coding advice, meaningful use help, HIPAA compliance etc.  Every time we have been contacted, it is because the doctor needed help with something other than just billing.

I STRONGLY agree with this as well. Today's billing company had better know the in's and out's of all aspects of the industry in order to compete.

My experience billing with Kareo is that it isn't "specialty specific", like some software is. It can be tailored for any specialty so far as I know. I use it for podiatry, and I know it can be used for internal medicine/GP billing also, and I am sure almost any other kind of provider.

If your using a web based PM system you don't need logmein.com   I only use Logmein.com to accommodate clients who are not on a web based system.

The cloud-based Doctor and Clinic Management System Software may prove useful to you. It incorporates a very strongly built medical billing and payments module.

You do not have to pay license fees to use this software. The software is delivered On-Demand. You need to subscribe to its services by paying small monthly fees.

Has anyone been able to get more reasonable pricing for multiple providers from  H big cloud based vendors (Kareo, advance, collaborate, etc...)?

We have not looked into it in several years, but we did an extensive search a couple years back and we were never able to locate a cloud based software that was reasonable for multiple providers.  We worked with a company trying to develop one but they didn't succeed.
