Long time OPENVPMS user
Although, we did provide some seed funding initially for the development of this PMS, I resisted for ages actually changing over to OPENVPMS because I was concerned about the changeover; new program, different system, how would the staff manage? etc etc. Also, Vertical Connect had managed to make our old program run so much better and more stable. I did not see the point is changing too soon.
However, once we made the change, I loved it! Wondered why I had resisted for so long.
Vorteile: Having been exposed to most of the programs out there, having been an accredited hospitals inspector for many years, I can honestly say that from a clinicians point of view OPENVPMS is the best. I like the presentation of the clinical record; the ease with which one can attach Lab results, photos, photomicrographs, etc in a chronological order. It is easy to follow the progression of a case. With the alerts and notes it is easy to see what previous major issues the patient has had. I like the open sourced nature of the program. There are no exorbitant program fees. Vertical Connect were fantastic at setting us up initially and the program is very stable. There are no license fees like other programs available out there. New staff have had no problems adapting to this PMS - within a few days
Nachteile: I am a veterinarian and do not even try to understand the IT in the background that makes this program work so well. It is not a program one can download and start using with out having a reasonable amount of knowledge about the various opensource programs that makes this work. There are some aspects that are annoying - like most programs. in particular sometimes the number of mouse clicks required, or not being able to load several images at once. One needs to repeat the process for each image.

Adopted and started using for small Canadian start-up veterinary practice in 2014.
Kommentare: Virtually error-free practice management software. Couldn't run without it or something exactly like it. Perfect combination of standard features but with full-customization abilities for a dedicated user/administrator. Open-source nature has allowed for adaptation to the Canadian tax system and small tweaks that we prefer in our practice. Once running, the software has been maintenance free except for standard upgrades or customizations as desired. Have never had any software-caused downtime in 3+ years of running. Superb.
Vorteile: The ability to run in our fully Linux-powered practice and to customize to our needs were absolutely essential elements in our selection of practice management software. The owner/vets had nearly 40 years experience with standard commercially-available products and had been singularly unimpressed. As IT/Bookkeeper, I was tasked with finding something else. OpenVPMS has proven to be an excellent choice in that it has allowed us to develop a system that is not only easy for new staff to learn but has allowed development of a system that serves us perfectly. The vets are pleased, the staff are pleased and so I am too! Standard reporting and documents are comprehensive in their scope. Online help for any screen is available through Alt-F1. From an IT perspective, the open-source nature of the code and the use of free software such as MySQL for database handling, OpenOffice and JasperSoft Studio for document and report customization, makes for a very flexible package. As a server-based webapp, OpenVPMS was relatively easy to deploy on the practice's server (see CONS) and requires no special software on the workstations other than a standard web browser. Support for both use and implementation has been nothing short of absolutely outstanding. The community and core personnel have been incredibly helpful in answering any questions and providing guidance where necessary. This is truly an excellent project, well worth consideration. Highly recommended.
Nachteile: Getting OpenVPMS up and running is not a not a simple matter of installing a single package and firing it up. It requires at least a good working knowledge of server set up, deployment, basic networking, etc. Tricky in places, but not outside the realm for a committed enthusiast. While we don't find that new staff have any difficulty learning the application itself, any more than basic customization is beyond the capabilities of most users. That said, there has been considerable progress in the latest versions for simple customization of the wide variety of standard reports and documents provided. This can now all be done within OpenVPMS itself at the initial practice configuration stage (adding practice logos, contact info, etc.) without the need to fire up any outside software. This has greatly simplified the setup process for new adopters. But for anything beyond that, the learning curve is very steep. OpenVPMS uses an entity-relationship style MySQL database. While the power and flexibility of such a database really requires this to be a PRO and not a CON, I find the syntax for addressing the data base directly to be mind-numbingly cryptic. Prior experience with a relational database and/or a shelf full of MySQL textbooks is of limited help. Any attempts on my part to customize the standard reports' SQL queries have generally left me admitting defeat and asking for help from the community. Such help has always been provided, however. Thanks!
