eClinicalWorks is an integrated electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solution providing technology through every step of the patient care delivery process. Physician practices can access features include patient engagement, TeleVisits, customizable reminders, population health data, healthcare analytics, and custom messaging campaigns.
eCW software allows for structured data capture, trend analysis, and customizable documentation options to assist clinicians across multiple healthcare specialties. From the Patient Hub, a clinician can access all components of patient records including demographics, billing information, past and upcoming appointments, plus more medical practice details.
With eClinicalWorks EHR software Version 11, clinicians gain access to Eva, a virtual assistant that can help review patient records including information from the Progress Note tool, data flowsheets, and any account balances. V11 also includes features such as the Healow app, Messenger, a self-service patient portal, online appointment booking, plus more.
eCW's Healow app can track patient-recorded data from home monitoring devices that patients can wear/use and sync it directly with the healthcare provider's EHR system, keeping clinicians connected with real-time patient vital signs, activity, and progress.
eClinicalWorks can be used on a PC or Mac using a web browser, smartphone, or iPad.

This is a much less cumbersome software than that used in other offices.
I like the search patient feature - if two patients have the same or similar names, it alerts you. It would be easy to click on the wrong patient in error. All the chart documents are organized intuitively so it is very easy to find a specific document you are looking for. Also, as soon as you pull up the patient, it shows the date of the last visit and date of the next upcoming visit. Also, printing is smooth and no trouble to set up.
The progress notes are semi-prepopulated, which could lead to information getting into the note that you did not intend to.

It gets the job done for us and it probably just like most other EMRs they all have issues but at the end of the day they allow you to record your notes and bill the insurance.
ECW can get most of what you want done. I work mainly on the reporting side and staff support. The ability to pull reports is pretty good with their EBO system. We get almost everything we need reporting wise from that system whether it’s financial or encounter data. Their support is pretty responsive usually calling back the same day in most cases. Their billin service is pretty good and is very reasonable. Our company pays about 8% totally cost with ECW which is pretty much the industry standard.
There are sometimes a lot of clicks with ECW. Anytime you do an upgrade something is not going to work which is very frustrating. If you are a CPC practice you will be frustrated as their reporting dashboard took until the middle of 2018 to start working and then we upgraded and now we are waiting on a patch to get the dashboard back up. Don’t expect to speak to anyone that’s first language is English when you call support. We started with ECW in late 2015 and we had to setup everything from scratch which we thought was really strange as they have so many practices you would think there would already be templates for almost everything.

You have the ability to do most things you need for medical practices. You can schedule patients, upload documents, run reports, bill and make claims, submit claims electronically and through paper printing, fax, e-prescribe, make telephone encounters, keep user logs, etc. It is an overall all-comprehensive product.
There are so many glitches it is pretty ridiculous. We are always playing catch up to fix numerous things that goes down. There is never a 2 week period where everything is running smoothly.
The technical and customer support is also weak. They do a good job of getting back to you most of the times, but it takes them quite a bit of time to figure out what is wrong and fix it. Not only that, but communication is a bit tough as I believe most service technicians are located out of country and have heavy accents.
ECW also charges you for so many add-ons that it gets to get ridiculous. They push their products and interfaces so that you need to pay them more than the monthly base.
Also, ECW is starting to get out-dated and behind. When we first signed up with ECW about 14-15 years ago they were top of the line. But they have quickly fallen behind all the other electronic medical records systems that have started. It has been frustrating trying to keep up, especially because of all the new medical record regulations government has been pushing.
ECW is also not friendly with other databases. If you need to submit certain information and electronic secure messaging, you can only do so by forcing the other party to sign up for ECW's communication system which of course no one wants to do.
Also, if you try to switch out of ECW, all the data in ECW cannot be transferred easily. They purposely make it hard for you to switch out and hard for anyone to work on tech. I'd say skip.

Fine experience, but think there are many other better EHRs out there. As a student of informatics as well, it seems so outdated and user experience is too click heavy, the downfall of EHRs!
The ability to choose and make templates is great, the auto populate features are helpful as well and copying and pasting into and out of charts is easy enough and saves time.
The EHR is not linked with Sorian/ Harvest or other document viewing so requires multiple passwords, multiple sign ins, and is not easy to view within the chart without printing and creating waste. There are also multiple ways to do tasks, which seems like it would be helpful, but is actually confusing when trying to teach or talk someone through using it if they do things differently.

We went from paper medical charts to electronic charting with eCW and it has saved our staff and clinic so much time. In a multi-specialty clinic with over 70 providers this now allows everyone to access the chart at the same time.
eClinicalWorks was very easy to learn and has greatly enhanced production at our clinic. eCW allows multiple physicians to review the information at the same time...no more lost paper charts.
I have not found anything in eCW that I don't like.
