These comparisons are misleading, because they don't actually compare anything at all!
Any comparison between WriteUpp and Power Diary would obviously be biassed towards whoever was writing the article.
Comparisons made by someone besides yourself (and maybe even your peers) don't really count for anything.
They want you to believe that their sole purpose is to help you decide which product/service is best for you, but actually they're just trying to get you to buy their product.
Have you ever seen an analysis chart that favours one competitor over another?
They always look like this:
Your practice and needs are as unique as you are.
Sure, every practice broadly has the same purpose, but not everyone works in exactly the same way. Each person’s experience with a particular system is different.
Power Diary Alternative - We do things differently.
We don't "guess" what features you may be interested in, nor do we copy what Power Diary has done.
We implement features that our community tells us they want.
Our designs are built from the perspective of solving real customer problems, rather than imitating what others are doing.
We understand why you're looking at different software solutions, and we think it's the right thing to do!
Now that you're here, let's help you decide which one makes sense for your business.
To help, we're going to go through the five key things to consider when thinking about investing in practice management software.
What should I look for in my practice management software?
Our Top 5 Tips:
1. Will your data be secure?
When buying clinic management software, storing patients' medical records securely may be among the top things you want to address.
It's important to select a system that complies with local regulations regarding personal data protection, for example GDPR.
WriteUpp is likely to be able to help you achieve this, but check out our data & security information to see if it matches up with your needs.
2. Does it have all the features you need?
Practice management systems aren't really too different from each other when it comes down to their core functions.
Typically they include an appointment calendar, a patient database, medical records and some financial reports.
Some of the more cutting edge companies will offer things like:
- Online forms and assessments
- Online consent portal
- Diary management system
- Cashless payment functionality (including in person)
- Online booking system
- Video Consultation feature
- Automatic email and SMS communications (especially reminders)
- Client waiting list
- Task lists
- Templates for documents and notes
- Medical practice and clinician analytics
Don't buy a load of stuff you're never going to use; but do think about what you may want later on down the line.
3. What's the price tag?
You don't need to base your choice solely on price; instead, consider features, ease of use, support, etc., which are far more important factors for our users than price.
You need to decide which software solution best fits your needs by considering its cost versus its benefits.
If the company offers an initial discount, then what will the final cost be once the promotion ends? Does the full price still work for you?

4. Does it work on the devices you want to use?
Are you a PC user or do you work on a Mac?
Would you like to be able to access your patient record or diary securely from anywhere at any time using just an internet connection?
Which method would you prefer for taking notes — using a stylus, dictating them into the software, or drawing annotations directly onto images?
Make sure your private practice software runs well on every device you intend to use.
It would be even better if you could test it out yourself by using the actual device(s) that you use every day.
5. Is there any kind of ongoing technical support?
If you're not sure where to start, there will be times when you want help setting things up.
Never sign up for anything without contacting the support team first and finding out if it works well.
