About Praxis EMR

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 managemen...

Best EMR for the money

I have used numerous EMR system in the past. In the clinic alone, this the third one we used. Praxis cuts back on my documentation time to less than an hour a day which is pretty good considering that I see > 20 patient a day. Technical support is outstanding. Very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable.

Pros

Functionalities that you can tailor to your needs. Live Technical support in case you need one.

Cons

The first week of use requires building your knowledge base and can be challenging. However, as created two or three documents, it gets easier every time.

Reasons for Choosing Praxis EMR

I was intrigued by the knowledge based idea. A template that builds on itself.

Praxis

Praxis is my 4th EMR over last 25 years of my practice and so far the best EMR that I have used, wish I had known about it years ago. In my opinion, physician can customize Praxis with little to no effort and personalize it to fit your need and satisfaction. Starting from implementation and training to go live, Praxis team was totally dedicated with one goal in mind...success of my practice. I have been using Praxis for last three months and have seen great benefit with improvement in quality care that I provide to my patients and reasons for this being true are: Less chances of making mistakes... Information available, when I need it and where I need it... Praxis learns from you, and teaching Praxis is very easy, so far Praxis has behaved as the best student... It is entirely possible that I will see financial gain over next one year by being more efficient, utilizing certain covered services now with great ease with Praxis which would not have been possible in past... Most important thing, I am enjoying myself and feel like, I got my life back...

Pros

Praxis has allowed me to be the doctor that I always wanted to be.....provide the best possible care to my patients

Cons

Sorry, so far, do not have anything negative to say about this GREAT EMR

Reasons for Choosing Praxis EMR

Unique features that Praxis has, no other EMR has it

Incredible Experience

I'm a few weeks into the onboarding experience. The team has been phenomenal. Multiple attentive people, and the trainer is the best. Oh.. and I had a very unusual connectivity request, and in turn.. even their subcontractors are amazing. They are teaching our clinic how to vastly improve the tele-psychiatry experience for our providers (that wasn't even in the work order or request, it was, ...hey can I get some advice, ...for free I am working with expert who is amazing, he isn't even an employee of Praxis).

Pros

So when I saw the demo, my jaw dropped... They took concepts I knew and ran with them further than I imagined possible. My next thought was... oh my... people may not easily realize what Praxis has accomplished until using the software... For context.. In residency training I was tasked with teaching patient presentations to medical student. I had some previous training in internal medicine at an Ivy League Program where I struggled with presentation skills. But due to a lot of intensive work and guidance I became very skilled (and the prior struggle lent itself to teaching students, because I could guide students having difficulty). One cornerstone was teaching students that were do not process information in written text, and if you look at a transcription of any conversation, it tends to be... run-on sentence, fragment, tangential thought, one word reply, then run-on sentence, etc. Speech is fragmentation and it needs to stay that way else it is difficult for the listener (..that is why it is so annoying when you hear an entire lecture read off long paragraphs in powerpoint). Speech patterns aside, the point is that we do not think in written text. Furthermore, as a provider gains experience, human cognition allows them to process information much faster than conscious awareness. Praxis understands this, and they built something revolutionary. Put in your information on their website and watch their demo, I would need to write 2 pages to explain it.

Cons

It took me three years to find them, and had it not been for the Coronavirus pandemic forcing me to search high and low for an ideal EMR, I would have stayed with paper charts and dictations (I hate EMRs, every one except Praxis)

Reasons for Choosing Praxis EMR

They truly understand how to put a physicians thoughts on paper in way that takes seconds.

SHORT STORY: If you are a DPC, you might want to consider a different EMR

We planned to open a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice in mid-2019. We reviewed dozens of EMRs and depended largely upon Capterra’s ratings and extensive reviews. Finally, we narrowed our search down to Praxis. We believed it would serve us well with its promise of shorter charting times and high provider satisfaction. After using the program for approximately nine months, we switched to an EMR that provided many more options for our DPC. Praxis is set up to work for a more typical medical practice and doesn’t offer many of the features uniquely required by a DPC. To be candid, our providers (both past 60) were not interested in changing their charting practices to maximize the novel way Praxis suggests charting be done in their program. However, other realities of working with Praxis slowed them down considerably. Because Praxis is stored on a remote computer, there was considerable lag time in clicking on the multiple places required for each patient interaction, even though we have a dedicated fiber optics line and 100 GB both up and down. This made charting laborious. It was a struggle to get the patient demographics efficiently placed on any outgoing referral or document. While some of the support personnel were kind, helpful and prompt, others lagged in their responses and some were rude to our providers. The interfaces between our clinic and the pharmacies (for electronically submit prescriptions) and between our clinic and our lab provider were never completed.

Pros

We appreciated Praxis’s ability to monitor patient flow from the time they entered the office until their exit. Our front office reported they appreciated the way the schedule included the “reason for visit” for each patient.

Cons

Praxis is not well-suited for a DPC (Direct Primary Care) practice. We didn't realize this when we purchased it as ours was a new practice. Promised interfaces between our lab and Praxis never happened. Pharmacies were never fully integrated so e-prescribing was lacking. There was no way to print prescriptions directly from Praxis in a way that met our state's regulations. Charting was slowed by the fact that Praxis was on a remote computer. Patient demographics were very difficult to place on outgoing referrals and other documents.

Reasons for Choosing Praxis EMR

We reviewed dozens of EMRs and depended largely upon Capterra’s ratings and extensive reviews. No one beats Praxis's high marks! Finally, we narrowed our search down to Praxis. We believed it would serve us well with its promise of shorter charting times and high provider satisfaction.

Best in the industry!

No more lost charts, messaging and prescriptions are a breeze. The price is affordable even for a solo practitioner like myself. Made the investment of having them come out to help me set up my system which was a game changer. I was up and running full speed within just a few days. Praxis support has always been quick to any issue that arises. I migrated to the cloud version which allows me to easily access charts from my phone, tablet or computer from anywhere I have a connection. It

Pros

I have used several EMRs in my medical career and nothing comes close to allowing me to practice medicine in an efficient way like Praxis does. I am in command of my charts much like a paper chart but with the practicality of EMR. My templates can be updated and changed with ease even from a current patient visit. No more calling tech support to change something that is not quite right about an encounter template, I can adjust it easily in real time. When we do have tech issues, they are quickly on the case to resolve any issues. I use the cloud version so I can access from any location. It is so fast to use that I am done with charting when the patient leaves the room. It is obvious that it was created by a practitioner, who knows what functions we need to practice more efficiently. They continue to make improvements to Praxis and use customer feedback to enhance version updates. Cannot say enough about Praxis!

Cons

none - It's so robust I am still learning all the functionality

Reasons for Choosing Praxis EMR

By far the best value for the money.
