Praxis EMR Software


 

Praxis is an electronic health record (EHR) platform that offers both web-based and on-premise deployment.

The Praxis EHR system is template-free, instead utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) that learns the way each physician operates and adapts to a user’s individual needs. As it is used, the AI learns more, getting faster and smarter. Everything within the system is presented in the doctor's own words and preferred order.

Software features include e-prescribing, lab integration, procedure workflows, narrative reports, practice advisories and a patient portal, and the software is ONC-ATCB certified.

Praxis serves small and mid-sized practices in all specialties of medicine, including family practice, internal medicine, pain management, urology, integrated medicine, endocrinology and more.

Best of all the EMRs we have looked at

Any EMR, and we looked at many of them, will take a few months to adapt to. That will be the same with Praxis. As much as that was a stress and slowed us down for a few weeks, we would never go back to paper nor have we ever seen a system that would be better for us than Praxis. One thing that impressed us was that Dr. Low, founder of the company, got involved personally when we were trying to make some adaptations to make Praxis better fit our practice. He is very much hands on and will do whatever is necessary to be sure you have a positive experience and a system that will work for you and your patients. Look at as many EMRs as you can and carefully chose the one that best fits you and your practice style. Don't make that choice lightly.

Pros

The system produces a document that reads very much like one you would dictate. It is very easy to customize and alter the "template" as often as necessary. Each clinician can have their own "template". The sentences show up grayed out and you simply click on the ones you want to include in the note. No drop down boxes to navigate. Chart review is easy, although it will be nice when you can open multiple windows at once side by side to compare visits or labs. The system has not slowed us down significantly compared to dictating. You can set up different physical exam templates so that follow up visits have a different set of choices than new patient visits. Our specialty is sleep medicine so we have not used the system to pull in labs, send out prescriptions or order tests, make follow up appointments, etc. One very nice feature is that you can set up the "templates" so that you can have an MA go in and basically read through the history "template" and click on the relevant bits. The clinician can come in, review it with the patient, and the history is complete and documented. All the clinician needs to do is click through the exam, click on an assessment and the plan and you are done. This allows you to complete the chart while you are there with the patient and go on to the next one. Praxis also makes it easy to review the charts of the mid-level providers (NPs and PAs) and sign off on them as their supervisor.

Cons

Not much in the way of Cons, just things to consider in looking at Praxis. A great deal of time will be necessary to put the "templates" together and modify them to your liking. It is time well spent to get it set up as close to perfect as possible. The process is simple. We just dictated our normal history and assessments into a Word doc, cut and pasted into the Praxis "template" and modified them a bit as time went along. It is time consuming but simple. The trainers are very good and can walk you through that. If you have a practice where the history and PE are fairly different and nuanced from one patient to another, neurology would be an example, this process will be somewhat more complex. You can dictate into the history section if you prefer to do that. The downside of doing that is that you cannot complete the chart in the room.

I've been using Praxis for a year. It's a pretty awesome program. The design allows docs to build templates on the fly and reuse the same templates and modify them for each patient. The templates and modifications can be saved as new templates and pulled up based on assessments. If you've got a patient with multiple assessments, then pull up one or more of the completed templates and build a report as a collection of templates. For instance if someone has elevated homocysteine, then once you've built a template for this assessment, each time another case has this imbalance, the full template can be pulled in containing diagnosis codes, patient educational info, recommended diet and lifestyle changes, meds or supplements and description of the condition. Write it once and it's there whenever you need it again.

Pros

Easy template use, smart software, great customer support.

Cons

I'm waiting for patient portal for patients to fill out history online, to be incorporated directly into chart so that no manual entries will be required for this step. It's a feature that is in the pipeline and should speed up the patient management and reporting considerably.

Value for Money

The best way I can describe Praxis is that it was written by a doctor with real-world workflow experience with the help of programmers. Other EMRs I have seen and used have been written by programmers with the help of doctors. It is a visionary program which can actually allow you to be faster with Praxis than you are on paper.

Pros

It can learn from the individual provider and customize itself to the way each provider likes to do things.

Cons

I can't think of one.

Advice to Others

If you have a busy clinic and want to maintain the quality of care you provide, this is the product for you. If you only see a handful of patients a day for the same thing over and over again then by all means, consider something else.

I've used Praxis in my own solo practice for many years, and have also used 2 different institutional EMR's (in teaching & in part time outside employment) for comparison. I'm impressed by how much better my EMR works in office practice.

Pros

Ease of integrating several diagnoses together for the same visit.
Automatically remembering chronic findings to reduce need for editing.
Remembers how I like to document and manage each kind of diagnosis, reduces editing for future similar patients.

Cons

None.

Advice to Others

If the government-required "Meaningful Use" features seem confusing at first, just practice the basic features until you feel confident, then gradually start using additional features.
I've found that designing the best EMRs and the best practice management software require different skills from different companies, so I recommend finding the best of each rather than looking for a compromise of both in the same company.

I can't speak of the product itself, since we have not yet started using it consistently yet. The medical practice bought Praxis quite some time ago, but for some reason never implemented it in the practice. Recently, I've restarted the process, and Praxis has been helping my office with the necessary training for a smooth transition. Praxis has also released training videos which will help with training new employees and will be useful for just a quick refresher. I'm very excited to use Praxis in my office and hope it will help quicken our charting experience!

Excellent EMR

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

After extensive research regarding EMR's I came to the conclusion that Praxis would likely be a good solution. There are many EHR's out there, most being template based. What's unique about Praxis, and one of it's biggest selling points is the concept processor. The initial setup process takes a bit of time, but that time is well spent. You come up with a list of your most common cases that you see in you practice and then write a "template" for those cases. Since you are writing it, the notes will always be in your own words as opposed to you having to fit into a template with check boxes.

Pros

customizability, ease and speed of writing notes.

Cons

learning curve is higher initially

I have been using Infor-med Praxis EMR since 1990 because it was not template based, and Medicine being an art, has a nuances of personalily in the way you document your work which is not possible wih templates. The learning curve was no easy because the Concept Procesor was something I never heard off. After a couple of weeks i began to imput cases with amazing expediency and precision.
One thing you must do with Praxis before anything else, or be done by your staff, is to input the demographics of your practice. Nothing will work well if the demographics are not in first.
It also helps to have a Virtual Review of Systems as large as possible y and the most ample signs and symptons collected form various sources.
If you do these, you will only have to type one or two letters to get the appropiate word you need instead of the whole word.

Pros

Always up to date with regulations. Hence you get paid faster and get no records returned for corrections.
The 3 concomittant clocks (Arrival to Office), Time spent in the examining room for the doctor and theime spent with the doctor allowes you too fix and change the flow of patients in the office.
Crystaline clear documentation that protects you in case of malpractice.
Faster and more patient flow since you can interact with the patient and not only a screen and keyboad. Pts. hate that impersonal interaccion.
Several integrated complementary subsystems that do not permite you to miss the input

Cons

Learning curve can be reduced by having the staff impunt the statistics while the system is set up so you can begin imputing patients since day one.

Praxis uses a constructive semantic engine to incorporate medical observations in the medical providers own language and terminology. It has always been a boon for physicians but physician assistants and nurse Practitioners particularly in a specialized area of care will find this the most readily customized electronic health record available.

Pros

This is the program that allows you to express your procedures and visits in the terminology you would use. You can link with evidence based resources and guidelines when needed.

Cons

Buy it and try it!

Advice to Others

This program allows integrity of documentation. If there is anything special or unique in what you do this is the EHR that will serve you.

The sales representative was very knowledgeable and helpful. The implementation manager was very good. My trainer was very patient and thorough. The software takes a lot of initial work but will be the way I practice medicine!

Pros

Instead of a click on preset buttons that were rarely set up the way I think, this system is the way I used to dictate notes. The notes sound like I made them and contain what I did.

Cons

Initial set up is time consuming.

Advice to Others

If you have the time and desire to set up a system the way you practice-this is your software!!

The evolution of PRAXIS is physician directed and this is the key point. This is why PRAXIS “Kicks Ass” (please excuse the vulgarity) on all physician EMR surveys. The program has a Conceptual processor (not templates) which is extremely flexible, quick and this makes PRAXIS unique when compared to all other EMR’s. Having used templates before, templates are an easy start but as the data is placed in the template EMR it becomes cumbersome, slower and more difficult to use. PRAXIS self learns your practice patterns and improves with time. After 15 years of using PRAXIS I still make daily micro improvements to my knowledge base as medicine changes.

Likes Least

To find the ideal EMR is like looking for the Holy Grail you will never find it! There is no perfect EMR and they all have some problems and I have looked at many.

Recommendations

The more you use PRAXIS the speed of the program accelerates as it learns your thought patterns and I call it my personal neural network. Learning PRAXIS is similar to playing a musical instrument; difficult at first then it becomes a pleasure.

It allows me to provide much better patient care because it makes sure I don't forget to include labs, dDx, reminders, medication choices, or anything else I have previously done for a similar patient. Finished note looks like it has been dictated rather than formed from an EMR. It does not look like it is template driven because it is not. Great support from Praxis.

No complaints or regrets. Slightly steep learning curve, but it was well worth it.

See how another Praxis user in your specialty uses it. You will be amazed at its ability to save you time, make your patient care and notes complete and at the innovation of the users in using the product not just the innovation of the vendor in developing it.
