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.

Fantastic EMR

I couldn't even think of using an EMR that is a template based system. I've heard from doctors that use them, "then you can type in your own words on top of the templated documentation", and I say, "exactly, but why would I want to have to do that each and every time", with Praxis, you teach it once then it remembers it for ever, for example how I document a left medial knee steroid injection is learned by Praxis and I never have to enter the exam followed by the consent documentation followed by the procedure documentation followed by the followup instruction, again with Praxis "you teach it once and it remembers it forever". But beyond this (and this by it's self makes Praxis by far better than most EMR's, ) you can teach Praxis to remember specifics about the individual patient..."the cholecystectomy scar in Jim's right upper abdominal quadrant is well approximated and healed well"... and "Jim's left mid forearm shows a red and black sailors tattoo faded but still visible" ect ect. But to go even further, and this is where Praxis is far and above any other EMR out there is Praxis's "concept processor" ability to shine with the new Pay for Performance requirements. With Praxis, you teach it once and it remembers for ever in this case with "Datum +". With Medicare now requiring us to provide patient data for the Pay for Performance, it becomes easy to mine for any and all requirments. For example, Praxis can easily provide "all the Diabetics with A1c's 7.0 or less who are also on an ACE Inhibitor and have a LDL of 75 or less" and include the patients names, dob and any other data. This is all done automatically, without any extra work (or buttons to push).

Pros

It's not template, it learns from me and from my documentation (can you imagine what the Lawyers could say if my notes were simply a template and that everyone's progress note says the same, I wouldn't have a leg to stand on)

Cons

It takes some time to build up your progress notes, after that, documentation becomes a breeze and easy.

I have used two other EMR systems and they were frustrating at best; dangerous for the patient at worst.

Pros

This EMR was obviously designed by a physician. There is no mindless clicking. The system works like a doctor thinks and not like the billing department''s mentality. The medical memory produces most of the necessary note. The system also remembers the individual patient's individual exam so I don't have to re-create chronic findings for each visit. I use Praxis seamlessly with Dragon naturally speaking. Support for the EMR has been magnificent with them taking over fixing any problems in the background while I continue to see patients.

Cons

No significant cons for Praxis EMR. I am eagerly awaiting their next conversion and to see what they have added.

Ease-of-use

Customer Support

Customer and IT support has been excellent. Everyone is very helpful and easily accessible when you need them. Training was just enough and able to get more when needed. We had a previous EMR and also looked at several others prior to purchasing Praxis. Praxis is hands down the best system out there.

Pros

Praxis is extremely easy to use and navigate. Charting has become easy and real time. Easy to view patient notes, reports, labs and document. I love the eprescribe - very easy to use.

Cons

It takes time to develop your notes/templates but once you start the process you can become efficient quickly. Staff training can be difficult depending on their level of computer skills.

I am SO happy that I chose Praxis for my EMR. It is one of the best decisions that I made for my practice. I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!!

Pros

As a clinician, what I really, really like about Praxis is the way I can chart in my own style and words, without a rigid template being forced upon me. It allows me to document various types of clinic visits exactly the way that I would like to, and its concept processor allows me to build a library of knowledge as I chart patients which I can pull from for future applicable cases. It helps me be more thorough, careful and accurate in my documentation, and helps me chart faster, too! Praxis helps me be a better doctor. Another fabulous aspect of Praxis is their EXCELLENT customer service, by far the BEST that I had experienced when I was looking around for an EMR for my practice and has remained great since I've gone ahead and signed on with Praxis. Everyone that I have encountered on their team - my sales representative, the administrative staff, the implementation managers, my trainer, and Dr.Low himself, are all so professional, nice, helpful and knowledgeable. They are consistently prompt in getting back to me whenever I have any questions. They have consistently made me feel valued and supported as a client, and I appreciate that very much. Having Praxis makes transitioning to and having an EMR, which I thought would be a stressful and problematic experience, actually very enjoyable.

Pros

Both customer support and training are excellent. The ability to design and modify my own office visit templates and lab panels is great. I use a lot of botanicals and compounded meds in my practice, and the program is flexible to handle those. E-prescribing log is very helpful to see what has been sent.

Cons

Some of my patients have had trouble navigating the patient portal, but Praxis is addressing that issue on several fronts: releasing a new version in very near future, new video for patients on how to use the portal, and personal support when occasionally necessary.

Best of all the EMRs we have looked at

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

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!

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.

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.

Notes are more organized and better thought out. I can more easily reference past visits.

Pros

There are no preconceived templates. The notes are in my own words. I do not feel as if I am cookie cutting my notes and I can make each encounter as personalized as possible. The staff is extremely available and ready to help. There is no longer a need to "create a ticket" and hope someone who understands your question can get back to you within a reasonable amount of time.

It allowed us to have notes that "sounded like us", not like some robot. It is easy to change the "templates" as we go along. It gives us more complete notes.

Pros

We looked at most every large vendor system and all had the same limitation, you had to use templates so the notes sounded stilted or were simply unreadable. With Praxis our notes read as though we dictated them. They flow well and convey information in the way we think. Creating your own templates will take some time but you can modify them as you work. No need to call IT or tech support. You can dictate into the system as well, I think, but we never have done that. The trainers learned our practice style, a bit about our specialty (Sleep Medicine) and we decided to set the system up differently than is normally done. It worked great and Praxis software is flexible enough that we could do that. Most importantly, once we were up and running it didn't really slow us down. It also made for more complete notes. The query bit makes it easy to search your patient base when you are doing the Performance Improvement projects that the ACOs require.

Made it easier to chart.

Pros

I am able to use it the way I want. I don't have to rely on templates. If I want to change the prepopulated information I need not to ask any tech support and can do it myself. My partners don't have to use my settings and template and can do their own changes. I am able to chart a level 4 follow up in less then 3-4 minutes while talking to patient. New patient may be 15 minutes while with patient and 7-8 minutes if I do it afterwards. Even if I don't have a medical assistant and I have to take patient back myself doing all the vital signs, I can still do a follow up in 5 -6 minutes. New patient information will take longer.

Cons

When praxis first comes it is completely blank, it will take you 18 -20 hours to create all templates. If you want you may import any other Physician's templates and thst will make it easier. However this is the way you get to create it the way you like. This also allows you to know how Praxis works so I recommend that you do take this time.

Having used templates before it is 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 16 years of using PRAXIS I still make daily micro improvements to my knowledge base as medicine changes. I go to an OB/GYN conference and learn a new treatment and at home I create a new virtual patient for my data base and throw away my notes.

Allows me to practice the way I want too

Pros

Eliminates the hassles of documentation. I can document a new patient encounter in under 30 seconds. I don't have to keep n changing screens. Can set up my PA and ARNP to practice the way I do.

Cons

seamless integration with our billing software. They are working on a patient kiosk to help eliminate paper. Can use instant medical history to help patients do H&P. Hopefully, one-day EMR's will have all options combined.

I was in a 2 partner practice and used praxis for 14 years. However I "gave up the ship" of private practice and was forced to switch from Praxis to one of the largest and supposed best EMR's. After one year of use, I still want to take a hammer to the computer. It is so onerous and counter intuitive. I am defiantly working an hour a day more to see the same number of patients, and have a much less impressive note

Pros

I could make the program produce notes exactly the way I want them to look. Very intuitive

Cons

That I am no longer using it.
My previous negative review would be that it took a good bit of time to set up and learn Praxis, but boy was I wrong.

Advice to Others

Defiantly a product worth considering

Praxis is the best EMR on the market in my experience. It is an incredibly flexible system that allows me to chart in my own words and doesn't force me to constantly be choosing from tedious drop-down menus. The training and customer support teams are excellent and make the whole process easy, especially if you are not a tech-savvy person like me. Since switching to Praxis, my output and quality of care have increased significantly. I save time and get to see more patients in the day. Praxis actually learns from me and really fits my clinic's needs. It has been a joy to work with and I would absolutely recommend it to other physicians.

I was fed up with my old EHR, which was a constant headache, and decided to switch to Praxis. It is the best decision I've made for my practice. Praxis is the only EHR I've used that actually lets me customize my notes and write them the way I want. It helps me remember important details and gets easier to use the more I use it. Since making the switch to Praxis, I've saved tons of time and actually been able to go home early and spend more time with my family. By far the best product on the market that I have seen. Praxis customer support also made the whole installation and training process a breeze, which took the stress out of switching.

It's not often that I find a product that stands out so exceptionally from any other that I¿ve used. That product is Praxis EMR. Praxis, thus far, has been a wonderful addition to my practice. The system is designed to literally adapt to me, and as a slow typist, this is exactly what I needed. I¿m pretty much a computer-phobe as well and this system is not overly computerized. It works with free text which is amazing and I've adapted lots of my old style to it. All I do now is show Praxis my preferences in writing as I chart and make sure I save them for the future, and it¿s done. I¿m charting faster than I have in the past, and my notes are better overall. I¿ve gotten compliments and inquiries from colleagues because they can see the difference in my productivity and output. Overall, if you¿re tired standardized systems that make you click and click you should give this system a try. Training is great too. Support is well done. Nice people all around.

Every physician within specialty or other specialties, have different work flows. With Value care in the horizon, placing more burden to the Physician - Patient relationship, documentation becomes more disruptive. Contrary to most reports that an EMR do not make you work faster, my experience with Praxis at its current version allowed my output to be at 30 to 40% higher. 95% of notes completed as the encounter ends.

Redundant documentation eliminated. The Praxis sytem can mirror a Physician's thought process provided the Physician user have a logical process to his daily work flow on a case by case basis. I don't know of any existing product that mirrors this system and I am willing to challenge any other EMR user to a show down in terms of documentation and quality measures captured and addressed be it on a one day, one week or up to a 6 month outcome measure

Just wanted to post that we are extremely happy with our decision to use Praxis. It is fun and easy to use, and the training was excellent. Once you get going Praxis really save you a lot of time. We've had very few problems with the software and the support is very quick to help us. In fact, they even helped us through our hardware and WIFI issues. The Praxis system is highly recommended from us all.

If you are a zombie stop, this program requires you to practice medicine so choose something else that you do not have to think.

First you control your practice.
Next it remembers how you practice .
It automates what bureaucrats need you to do.
Makes your life easier in a world of bureaucratic zombies.
All this requires you to work and think and create you own solution.
It has all the usual IT problems that every body else has so not that different.
Speed is Key so do not skimp on hardware.
You need to understand the logic of the concept before you start.

I have used this since its conception 1.0. If did not work then the processor was too slow. Then 2.19 came , it worked still slow but the net working hardware failed, the 3.x, 4.x came along and I have been using it since 2004. The 4.x worked well till MU stage one, it slowed down.
This program is not a fly by night, it is in for the long haul.

Excellent product.

Praxis allows me too;
1. document exactly like I want to (i.e. I don't fit my thoughts into the templated words of the EMR but the EMR documents my thoughts, my words...exactly without compromise).

2. quick, (i.e.. Praxis can be taught in one key stroke to document a "steroid injection into the left knee using a medial approach" as opposed to the right knee using a lateral approach.

3. efficient, (i.e. Praxis "learns", and once learned, Praxis remembers forever. In the above steroid injection you will never again have to dictate or type the document again and it will also be easy to teach Praxis a right knee procedure with only a few word changes.

4. practical. Praxis will pay for it self within a few months based on paying for dictation

5. liability protection. The hospital that I admit my patients too has an EMR that all doctors are to use. My problem not only is the above (the time and keys that I must use to document a knee steroid injection for example is unbelievable, without a way of teaching it my words for the procedure, infact the words that I must use are the same that all the other doctors use. How silly will I look to a jury when the documentation not only are not my words but the exact same words as someone else

6. Medicare qualified. Praxis (as does other EMR's) assists in meeting the new requirements, but unlike other EMR's offers meeting those requirements simple

7. Physician centered. Unlike other EMR's, Praxis looks at documentation the same way that we think clinically then allows us to document it the way the Insurance wants it done (opposed to the other way around)

8. uncompromised. Praxis allow uncompromised documentation in my words with full support and help at any time

I have been using Praxis for a over 2 years now and I can say that Praxis has made an outstanding contribution to my practice. I am nearly paperless, and I get labs right into Praxis from both Labcorp and Quest, and they are looking into getting the few labs I send top the hospital connected as well. I would say that my Praxis trainer (Karri) has been no less that exceptional, and they are always there to answer my questions and such. Support has been excellent and they answer within seconds. As far as time, I now get home by 6:30 or earlier and I was suffering until about 8-9pm with my old EHR system. I would recommend Praxis to anyone who is looking for high quality and fast charting. I had my trainer onsite which was wonderful. Good luck!
