1. HOMECARE: PROVIDERS TRUST THORNBERRY FOR FUTURE SUCCESS

Catering to small-to-midsize organizations, Thornberry offers strong technology and integration and proactive relationships that garner provider trust and help drive tangible outcomes. Kinnser and Delta customers receive a high level of vendor guidance and report strong technology. Kinnser users express the need for more reporting and accounting functionality. Delta clients would like improvements in usability. While generally trusted, Epic’s financial functionality needs improvement. Early adopters of MEDITECH 6.x feel strong vendor-client relationships, trust, integration, and functionality are strengths.

2. HOMECARE: NEARLY HALF OF CERNER CUSTOMERS LEAVING DUE TO FAILURE TO DELIVER ON INTEGRATION AND FUNCTIONALITY PROMISES

Cerner is the only vendor in this report to offer homecare and long-term care solutions along with an inpatient EMR. Providers say that Cerner Homecare has failed to deliver on full integration with Millennium and improvements in functionality. Around a third of McKesson and Netsmart customers have plans to leave. McKesson users say that bugs and product instability complicate system usability. Netsmart clients have trouble with missing features, integration difficulties, and a lack of provider trust. Delta has begun sunsetting Encore but has seen little adoption of Crescendo due to a lack of product maturity.

3. LONG-TERM CARE: PROVIDERS SEE MATRIXCARE AND POINTCLICKCARE AS INNOVATIVE PARTNERS

MatrixCare and PointClickCare customers say these vendors frequently update their web-based systems and deliver new technology, combining great usability with strong integration. PointClickCare customers say that their vendor excels in proactively reaching out to them and maintaining a strong working relationship. Providers using MatrixCare enjoy quick resolutions to support issues and strong technology that helps them deliver tangible results. All clients of MatrixCare and PointClickCare plan on staying with their vendor in the long run.

4. LONG-TERM CARE: ALL VENDORS FALL SHORT OF PROVIDERS’ INTEGRATION EXPECTATIONS

Users say NTT DATA does not deliver on overall integration or functionality, nor do they provide the expected guidance. American HealthTech and HealthMEDX struggle with integration, product functionality, and unanticipated costs. MatrixCare and PointClickCare providers are generally satisfied with clinical and financial integration; more work is needed to meet inpatient integration needs. Today, there is no vendor that fully meets providers’ external integration needs with the inpatient EMR.
