Primary Solutions, Brittco, or MediSked? – Which One is Right for You?

We conclude this feature comparison of Primary Solutions, Brittco, and MediSked with some final observations.

  1. None of the three solutions has pricing on their website. This is likely due to the fact that they are using modular systems and charging per module. As a result, it would be cumbersome to list pricing. Having said that, these are specialized software products aimed at a niche audience and will carry a commensurate price tag.
  2. Brittco’s offering is the most basic and therefore more user-friendly than its competitors. Startups and small organizations may be drawn to Brittco. Having said that, be aware that you may want to migrate to a more robust platform at some point.
  3. Primary Solutions is the biggest player in software geared to DD provider agencies and as a result, has a larger offering that may be more attractive to more mature organizations.
  4. MediSked takes in the breadth of human services organizations and therefore its product is not specifically fine-tuned to DD service providers in particular. With that said, many use it and like it.
