Praxis EMR Software


 

Praxis is an electronic health record and scheduling platform that offers the option of deploying on-premise or web-based.

The Praxis system offers an EHR that is template-free and can be customized to meet the physician's individual needs. It offers an artificial intelligence technology designed to learn the way each individual practices medicine. Everything within the system is presented in the doctor's own words and preferred order.

It has features such as e-prescribing, lab integration, procedure workflows, narrative reports, and a patient portal. The system is also ONC-ATCB certified.

Praxis EMR is typically recommended to small and mid-sized private practices in many specialties, including pediatrics, cardiology, family medicine, internal medicine, and urgent care.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
