Praxis EMR Software


 

Praxis is a unique, award-winning Electronic Medical Record (EMR/EHR) that does not rely on templates, but instead utilizes an artificial intelligence engine that learns from each user. Physicians chart their own way, using their own style and words, while progressively improving charting speed, documentation and medical quality.

The Praxis system offers a comprehensive EHR that is completely template free and can be fully customized to meet the physician's individual needs, enabling a highly personalized user experience. Their powerful artificial intelligence technology called Concept Processing actually learns the way each individual practices medicine, increasing the quality of care as it is used.

Praxis EMR avoids the limitations and risks that can be inherent to templates, such as cumbersome data entry, the loss of the patient narrative, and legal liability. Everything within Praxis is presented in the doctor's own words and preferred order. By improving the overall note-taking process, doctors using Praxis EMR can accomplish all of their charting as they see patients. According to an AAFP EHR User Satisfaction Survey, Praxis EMR is the only EHR that enables doctors to see more patients while allowing them to go home early.

Praxis EMR is a great fit for physicians in any specialty who value medical quality and make their own buying decisions. We specifically recommend them to small and mid-sized clinics. The experts at Praxis EMR believe that using an EMR not just about achieving Meaningful Use; it's about practicing the highest quality medicine possible and charting quickly and efficiently.

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.

Praxis works to document on the physicians own vocabulary. It can be customized in a precise way to meet your practice needs. The knowledge database and patient database function separately but interact. The effect is to build speed and efficiency with use. So the more one uses it the faster documentation becomes.

I really like this product. It is very customizable to your practice.

Recommendations

Praxis makes documenting easier, take the time to understand how it learns and builds on your cases.

We have been able to use Praxis to quickly and easily generate unique and complicated supplement protocols and specific instructions for every visit. I haven't seen any other products that would have made that possible. The Interface with Instant Medical History saver every provider hours per week.

Likes Least

Error messages and/or instability were mild/minor with the home-built, on-site server and almost non-existent since moving to the cloud.

Recommendations

Think about interfaces with billing, scheduling, labs and anything else. It all needs to work together smoothly but provider's time is more valuable than anyone else's.

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.

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

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.

It's fast. I have used the program since graduating residency and never switched. I've been practicing now 13 years, and have been able to continually complete notes more and more quickly. I use other EMRs that are hospital and clinic-based, however, they are cumbersome and there is a lot of cut-and-paste. Not only is that not efficient, but I find I am much more likely to duplicate the wrong information into a patient's encounter note.

Likes Least

Nothing so far. As stated, I have used this in my primary practice, but have the opportunity to compare it with other EMR, and I find it superior.

Recommendations

Look for speed and accuracy; that's the key when you are growing a busy practice. Don't get bogged down.

It's really fast! I have been using EMR for years. I became disillusioned with all of the templates. It was taking me an awfully long time to chart. I then did research on EMR's and only used independent reviews so I can get an unbiased review. That research led me to research that showed that practitioners that use Praxis are happier with it, have stayed longer than with other programs, and would recommend it to a colleague.

One of the best things about this is the customer service. They respond quickly and if it's something I need help on, they do whatever they need to do for me.

Speed! The Praxis "Concept Processor" charting engine learns the way you think, which enables you to chart with high levels of speed AND quality in ways that template-based EMRs simply can't. Praxis also helps you practice better medicine.

Likes Least

I have no complaints about this product. Praxis is a diamond in the rough of the otherwise template-based EMR wasteland.

Recommendations

Talk to longtime users. There is a learning curve with Praxis and like many things in life, you have to put the time and effort into it to reap the rewards. This software literally transfers the doctor's brain into the computer. This process is slow at first but speeds up over time as Praxis learns the way you think. If you're looking for a system that's quick to learn, but not all that sophisticated then go with a template-based EMR.

I love how flexible Praxis is. Unlike other template-based systems, it doesn't force me to constantly be choosing from drop-down menus and actually lets me chart in my own words, which has made a huge difference in my quality and output. I also really appreciate being able to interface with my existing laboratory and billing systems. Praxis is the only EMR I have seen that continues to get better and really syncs with my needs.

I don't have any complaints about Praxis. It is remarkably easy to use.

Praxis is the best EMR that I have seen not only because it is so flexible and easy to use, but also because it saves me time and makes the headache of Meaningful Use reporting significantly easier to manage. Overall an excellent product.

Praxis is really intuitive and easy to use. It's quite amazing as it learns my habits and preferences and the way I like to do things, as I chart throughout the day. I really feel that week to week, Praxis becomes smarter and my charting becomes better as a result. Praxis now save my a few hours a day minimum because charts are finished as I see patients.

Likes Least

I should have gotten Praxis earlier. I lost a and money on my old system. Be wary of 'free' EMRs. They are not free overall. I wasted lots of time with one, that was a nightmare.

Recommendations

Try Praxis out, and I bet you'll never look back. It's a system that everything you put into it, you get back 20 times over, and at least in my own practice, it is nowhere near finished improving and getting better.

I've been using the product since 1999. It simulates the work flow of the Physician the best compared to other products. The chronic assessment and findings avoid us from doing redundant documentation. The medication tab if trained correctly allows for me to date when to stop a drug (e.g. a Biphosphanate after 5 years).

None. The product continues to simulate how an individual Physician works throughout the day.

Praxis is uncanny in that it just seems to get better all the time. It thinks like I do, and helps me remember all of the details that I often don't even have time to remember. This EMR is smart and fun to use. I looked at Praxis for years, and I am so happy I am using this system today.

Likes Least

This is the best EHR I have used by a long margin, and I used two prior systems. I definitely recommend trying Praxis. However, I do not like the fact that the government is now forcing us all to use EMRs. I think it's ridiculous. I use Praxis because it helps me chart very quickly and efficiently, and makes my life easier. I get home at 5:30 rather than at 7:30 in the evening.

Recommendations

Give the Praxis system three months and you'll be glad you put the time in to do it right.

The best thing about this software is the ease with which you can document a note. There is no template, but instead the prior note for a certain diagnosis becomes the basis for the next note of the same diagnosis. This makes it easy and quick to document most notes, since most diagnoses are not new.

Likes Least

Tech support is available from 8am to 8pm Eastern time from Monday to Friday. Therefore, if there is a problem over the weekend, you need to wait until Monday to have the problem fixed.

Recommendations

Look for how easy it is for you to document a simple visit (sinusitis) and a complex visit (diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia). If it takes you too long to document, then the software will significantly slow you down. Look for a software that optimally would speed up the documentation process.
