Elation is a cloud-based EHR solution designed primarily for doctors and medical professionals to manage their daily activities. The solution is suitable for small & midsized hospitals, primary care units and independent practice centers that are in control of their own EMR decisions. In addition to its core EHR capabilities, the solution offers billing and practice management features. The web-based solution helps medical professionals to schedule appointments, record patients' medical histories, organize calendars, set reminders and manage billing & insurance reimbursement.
With Elation, clinics can manage the entire appointment organization and patient communication process, from pre-visit communication; during-visit coordination, and post-visit follow-up. The chart layout feature displays the keynotes of patients scheduled for the day. Doctors can prepare a clinical profile for each patient and complete this with information such their medical history, upcoming appointments, last prescription and more. The integrated solution also allows patients to book appointments online, check-in at the clinic, communicate with doctors securely, receive bills and make payments.
ElationHealth's comprehensive search feature enables doctors to quickly view patient medical data (regular symptoms, vitals, cholesterol values, etc.). Doctors can generate prescriptions by automatically refilling existing scripts and sharing these electronically with either in-house or external pharmacy stores depending on patient preference. With inbuilt messaging capabilities, medical professionals can securely communicate patient clinical data with both colleagues and patients themselves.
Elation is HIPAA compliant and Drummond and ICD-10 certified. As a web-based application, the software can be accessed from multiple devices including laptops, smartphones and tablets.
I would pick this over any other software with multiple offices. There is a very common software that is very costly and very popular and also very aggressive but I did not like it. This software has a very cumbersome way to do things.
I want to elaborate Elation in more detail.
One screen has all features.
Summary on l side- a must
Note on r side.
History in middle and all the tabs on the top.
Passport function works great for patient communication.
L top- has passport , Name, age etc.
Pharmacy selection is great- easy. All ready to pick.
ERx function is fast.
It shows you date of next visit.
All summary available to see at visit.
Best and unique feature: All MIPs needs are at the begining of each visit particular to the age and sex. You click and satisfy from the same screen. Clicking is one click only and very fast. There are softwares that will do this but will take you to many screens.
It is great for diagnostics that you work from same screen. More screens makes you forget when you are very busy.
Interface with hospital and Quest work great and they are free!
Even all hospital radiology reports are here as soon as they are signed off by radiologist. This interface was custom made for me at no cost.
I can tell you- Elation staff is super smart.
Customer service is not needed much as everything works great!
Reports look great. Bulk refills are a breeze.
Very pleasant and professional colors.
It has been a 8 months since I have started using this software. I used to have Soapware EMR for 18 years. Soapware had to shut down as the owner was getting to that age and older softwares are not easy to upgrade. I looked at 15 softwares before I picked Elation. I knew what I need as a busy primary care Internist. My staff and I are extremely happy that we ended up with Elationhealth. Everyone loves Amazon as the website is very robust and user friendly. I now can say that Elation is of that category. I am not getting paid to update my review. Some of the most popular EMRs are very cumbersome and so at the end of the day it is exhausting to finish the work. Elation is so easy that you can see your full load of patients and complete every note, even the most complicated patient's notes within 2 minutes. This includes visit note, all 10 rx local and mail, 3 referral with faxing all records to each, all orders for 5 different problems with ICD codes and all MIPs requirements. No software does all these. The best thing I see is that there are not any glitches. There are softwares that will do all these but at the end of the visit you will feel exhausted. This software works from one screen and with just one hour of use and not even much training you feel comfortable.
There are softwares that will make you work a ton for every new visit. I have saved all rx I use and all Orders I give so I can reuse them forever now for all future patients. Very fast now!
There is not much to dislike. I was little nervous about interface with billing software but it has worked great. I picked MD connection for billing and that is another robust software. As soon as patient leaves and I send the bill to MD connection- it reaches real-time. Most complete softwares have many glitches or may have one side powerful and other side weak. This combination is great and my billing staff loves billing software also.
I am able to work faster without errors.
I recently had to change from Soapware to Elation EHR. Soapware has shut down. I did demonstrations for about 15 software companies like some of the old ones but very popular ones. The biggest mistake a doctor can make is to go for an older software, that is clunky and slow. Never pick a software that has remote desktop connection needs. Those will be old and slow . I am glad I picked Elation. This is a cloud based software and is a pleasure to use. My staff and I had hardly a day of learning curve. It is a very smart software and very user-friendly. There are many software companies but many of them are cumbersome and slow. Elation is great and we love it.
Customization is very easy and once you do it you can work at a super speed. The only way a doctor can survive is to work fast at computer and pay enough attention to the patient before that. There are no phone calls from pharmacies. In a short time I have made many rx and orders templates that are reusable for future common complaints.
Just from one screen you are able to mix, match and patch to finish a complex note in two minutes including all 10 rx, 5 diff orders, 3 referrals, send the bill and close a note.
My staff and I both are excited and very satisfied with the performance. You will not go wrong with this software. Interface with the billing software is working great. It is not always necessary to use a complete software if that software is old and clunky.
It’s a great software, initially had issues and were not very responsive but since then has been quite smooth and overall satisfied- and I’m hard to please.
Unhappy only with mostly provider service when ongoing issues and cannot speak to live person. And lack of follow through on options such as online booking they had explicitly stated upon signing up.
Overall cost justifies the ease of use and time saved for physician.
Ease of use, easily accessible Pt info on one screen, few bugs/glitches, user friendly- very good compared to multiple other EHR I’ve used
Have to pay for billing software in addition to elation fee, ZERO discount for mid level prescribing practitioners, Absolutely no way to co tact them except via email re: issues which is very frustrating and have maybe 1 times out of 10 actually gotten back to me within their designated timeframe to rectify an issue/problem. When signed up 4/2017 salesman told me would be rolling out online booking for established patients over the summer. 12/17 still haven’t heard anything about offering that option
Affordable and fits basic charting needs
Easy setup/migration. Sales and support are very helpful. It fits most of our needs for medical charting.
Patient portal is not "family friendly" (parents with multiple children need to create and remember unique email addresses/logins for all). Minor updates are needed, like ability to add Handouts to visit note templates, attaching files to Passport message replies, etc - not major things, but requires our staff to repeatedly take extra steps/time to chart without these features.
Ability to transfer in my prior EHR documentation with only minimal to moderate pain
1. Scrolling "timeline" of notes and events
2. L-hand panel with patient summary
3. Logical charting format
4. Some nice "template-like" features
5. The next best thing to InLightEHR (but that EHR lost funding :()
6. Can view other documents while charting
7. Finds local/regional pharmacies/consultants with somewhat accurate demographics
8. Has almost every standard EHR feature
9. Fairly decent health maintenance module and nice (unobtrusive) reminders at beginning of each note
1. It could be more intuitive
2. Too many font and window colors- looks cluttered
3. Very rudimentary patient engagement tool (new update coming but adds another.
4. No medication dispensing/inventory management built in
5. No membership management built in
6. Poor order tracking as of now (hopefully this will change). You can't find a list of all uncompleted orders.
7. Poor in-office procedure documenting
