I'm trying to gather some information on the various EMRs out there. My facility is unhappy with our current EMR and are looking to switch. I'm wondering what everyone else out there is using and what they like/hate about it. 

We're too small to use something like Cerner or Epic. We've looked at Cerner's small facility application, and it will not work for us. 

We are a small, specialized facility. Most of our patients are under 5 years old though we do have some adults. We are not a long term care facility, though it is possible that an EMR designed for LTC facilities would work for us if it can be customized for pediatrics. Our LOS generally ranges from weeks to months. 

We must have an electronic MAR with the ability to scan the armband/meds, flowcharts, forms, and some type of provider documentation with templates. We have to be able to customize our charting ourselves. I make small tweaks to our EMR on a regular basis and we can't move to a system where we have to request a change and then wait for someone else to implement it. 

We do not have an in-house lab, in-house radiology, an OR, an ER, or clinics.

Matrix Care. 

It could be awesome if it were utilized appropriately.
