Best Practices Benchmarking
Role-based security controls oversee HIPPA-compliant access to records. AdvancedMD is ONC-ATCB-certified.
Unfortunately, there isn't a single mention of pricing anywhere on the website.
There are quite a few reviews of AdvancedMD on the Internet from users - they paint a picture that is less than perfect.
As with some other web-based solutions, reviews highlight the slowness of the system's performance and the poor quality of technical support provided. One review of the billing side of the system noted how easy it is to wipe out entire trails of patient history by accident without any apparent recourse to correct.
