It features cutting-edge technology that help you develop processes and strategies to improve office efficiencies. These “AI assistants” include PRISMA, a health information search engine that brings together patient records from a variety of healthcare systems; Scribe, an automated documentation tool that saves time and enhances accuracy; and Eva, a virtual assistant that gives providers access to patient histories, health records, and scheduling at the point of care. These features streamline workflows and automate administrative tasks so providers can focus more on patient care. eCW RCM and billing services allow healthcare providers to streamline billing processes and improve their bottom line. Whether providers manage their billing in-house or outsource it to eCW, they can be assured of high-quality services and achieve up to a 98% or higher first-pass acceptance rate. The in-office billing solutions provide increased control over the billing process, improved accuracy and efficiency, and reduced costs associated with outsourcing. Providers can also automate their billing solutions using bots, which can help reduce administrative burdens and improve accuracy. For providers who prefer to outsource their billing, eCW services provide experienced billing professionals who use the latest technology and best practices to ensure timely and accurate billing while providing comprehensive reporting and analytics to help providers manage their revenue cycle. eCW offers patient engagement tools that benefit front office staff and healthcare providers. For front office staff, online check-in and online appointment booking tools can significantly reduce administrative burdens and improve patient satisfaction. For healthcare providers, tools such as Patient Portal, Messenger, healow Pay, and telehealth can improve care coordination, enhance the patient experience, and provide virtual care options. With the rise of Value-Based Care, the healthcare industry has shifted its focus from quantity to quality of care. Providers are now incentivized to deliver high-quality care that produces positive patient outcomes rather than focusing on more services. This shift has also created new challenges, particularly in care coordination, coding, and population health management. eCW bridges these gaps by offering tools including HEDIS, Chronic Care Management, Transition Care Management, Care Plan Oversight, and Remote Patient Monitoring, enabling providers to better manage patient populations, and improve care coordination. These tools help providers deliver high-quality care that meets the needs of both patients, providers, and payers, positioning them for success in the Value-Based Care landscape. eCW offers a comprehensive suite of healthcare IT solutions that help providers deliver high-quality care while improving practice efficiency and revenue cycle management.

Great EMR for clinic based settings loaded with features

Overall eClinical Works does a pretty good job as a clinic based EMR. It's fairly comprehensive and once you learn it, it is very easy to fill out notes, auto populate data, code for billing and handle messaging and e-prescriptions.

Pros

I like how comprehensive the EMR is, information is fairly well laid out and it has lots of features including a messaging service where memos from patients, forms from pharmacies etc can all be accessed and responded to without having to give out the providers email address or phone number.

Cons

It can be difficult to learn at first and find all of the information it holds. Sometimes the locations of certain tabs aren't very intuitive. It's also annoying that you can't have more than one tab up at a time to look at multiple patients at once.

Great Difficulties Discontinuing Service

Terrible to disconnect from with misinformation and fraudulent billing despite clear records of trying to cancel services.

Pros

It is a usable EMR that helped productivity and was fairly intuitive

Cons

I delayed writing my review hoping ecw would settle my issue. I’ve been charged even after selling my practice completely last December and after full transitions of ownership am still billed fully! This is considerable ongoing cost and my issues are:1) In December when I sold out we requested services terminate as the new [sensitive content hidden] took over.2) We were given incorrect information we could not cancel due to contract, then we’re told we could have cancelled anytime by clicking a button3) Verified by [sensitive content hidden] our ECW contact he sees we requested cancellation after selling back in December and again every month, HE ALSO did screen sharing and confirmed our software lacks “the button” to cancel ecw,4) we are still being billed and cannot cancel!!!

You can get by with it but it is plagued with unhelpful support, errors, and out-dated

Not satisfied.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

DO NOT EVER BUY THIS SOFTWARE

Eclinical charged me for a nurse practitioner every month for 5 years after she left. They canceled her but they did not cancel the billing. I was unaware as I was not receiving invoices. When I finally got the company to send invoices they were very vague and hard to understand. They are refusing to give me a refund. I canceled another doctor just 2 months ago, and they did the same thing! They charged me for him the very next month after he left. I called them on it, and they said that since the invoice was already paid by direct withdrawal, that I would not get a refund. I immediately stopped their ability to remove money from my account directly

Pros

Nothing. I found out they settled a case with the DOJ for LYING about their product. The entire company is unethical.

Cons

The software has tons of errors. I have to report them individually by opening a ticket via a different web page. Regardless of how obvious the error is, they insist on calling you on the phone and logging into your computer without at least trying to check it out themselves. Then, nothing ever gets fixed.

It gets the job done

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.
