Private Practice gets my highest recommendation. I am excited about the future of data collection that is enabled by such a high quality, patient centered EHR. It not only has the potential to streamline data collection, but the transparent chart engages clients and opens up innumerable pathways for tracking and describing the exceptional care that midwives provide. The possibilities for research and advocacy are limitless. I have no doubt that Private Practice will play a vital role in transforming maternity care in the U.S. and abroad. The MANA Division of Research is excited to be a part of it.

Private Practice is the perfect EHR for birth centers – it is the midwifery model of care in an EHR! I am especially impressed by the client engagement – the ability to provide full client access to the record, informed and shared decision-making, and education tools. This award-winning, web-based EHR could not be a better fit for birth centers!

At Birth Centers of America we believe that the appropriate use of technology is a critical component to increasing the number of birth centers in the United States. The Private Practice Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a clear example of using high-tech tools to facilitate the high-touch care provided in birth centers. The cloud platform and flexibility of Private Practice give us confidence that their tools will adapt to meet our needs over time and across sites. Additionally, the ability of the EHR to produce data regarding our clients and outcomes will help us demonstrate and maintain quality in the care that we provide.

Your system represents an enormous step forward for the profession. The platform is simple, intuitive and should meet the needs of most midwives.
I LOVE that my clients have 100% access to their record and they love it too. This serves to keep me on my game and is enlightening and very much in keeping with midwives desire to enlist their clients active participation in the process of their care. I’ve already had clients tell me how cool they think it is that they can read my narrative and follow their flow chart. It also saves me from having to make copies of my contract and financial agreements – the client can simply read it on line and print it off themselves if they so desire.
I recently transferred a client with a complete chart in your system and it was so well received. My receiving hospital was pretty happy with my charts to begin with, but with my charts in your system they are beside themselves. This sounds like a silly little thing, but hospitals take a provider who transfers in with well organized, complete, prenatal electronic charts MUCH more seriously, than one with handwritten notes, no matter how good my handwriting or what is actually in my narrative!

Just wanted to pass on some positive feedback. Transfer yesterday to the on-call OB of our local, conservative hospital for prolonged rupture of membranes. The doc, upon entering the room to meet the client, turned to me to say “excellent chart notes”. Way to go Private Practice.

Private Practice is just what I needed as I have begun a new private home birth practice. After trying out other EHRs and finding that they just did not quite meet the unique needs of this type of work. The tutorials are a real plus for learning the system – very professionally done. I absolutely love the ability to keep all correspondence with my clients within the EHR messaging system. Thank you so much, Brynne and team for your proactive and innovative work for Midwifery in this age of electronic records! I am looking forward to growing with Private Practice. Keep up the good work!

Love it! This is so great! We chart better this way, more comprehensively, SOAP every time vs quick notes. Sharing with clients has taken it to the next level again: fewer acronyms, more information, clearer plans. I can feel our paper charts disintegrating! I kind of want to send you all some cupcakes now. I wonder how well they ship?

I just used “Refer or Transfer” to share records with a colleague who consulted with me. I love being able to send such amazing looking and professional records!

It’s incredible! I don’t know what I’d do without it!!! Our Commission for the Accreditation of Birth Centers (CABC) inspectors were incredibly impressed with the program and how affordable it is. They just could not believe a new midwife with a new practice could afford electronic charting software and when they found out it was made just for midwives, they were doubly impressed!

LOVE IT! I’m so excited… and it’s totally simple and easy to use. We are so grateful to have this amazing tool, and your whole team is awesome. Thank you for bringing midwives to the front edge of EMR [EHR] technology!

Have I told you lately that I love you? This is awesome stuff, guys! Keep it comin’!

I get SO EXCITED when the new features become active. I tried Practice Fusion. I really did. Twice. It’s just so unwieldy and so much more than necessary that I couldn’t make it work for me. This is so clean, so smooth… just perfect.
