Praxis EMR® sweeps Electronic Health Record system physician-user awards at AmericanEHR for fourth consecutive year. Praxis ranked #1 in nine of twelve categories.
Praxis EMR, a leading developer of electronic medical records (EMR/EHR) software has received the highest overall ranking by physicians at The American College of Physicians' EHR Top Ten Rating Program at AmericanEHR Partners.
Praxis EMR swept the 1-3 physician categories of the best rated EHR systems and was the highest ranked EHR earning number one standings in nine out of twelve categories including Overall Usability, User Satisfaction and Prescribing. Praxis EMR also won first place in Workflow Management, Order Management, Population Management, Support Experience, Training, and Interfaces. This is the fourth consecutive year that Praxis EMR has been named the #1 EHR in User Satisfaction as well as the #1 overall EHR in Overall Usability.
The difference between Praxis and the today's template-based EMR systems is its ability to adapt to a physician's unique preferences. Rather than using rigid pre-loaded templates, Praxis has artificial intelligence (AI) that learns from each user to chart progressively faster and more effectively. While a Physician sees patients Praxis utilizes its neural-network engine called a Concept Processor that learns from previous encounters to chart progressively faster and more effectively.
"The problem today is not the EHRs, but rather the templates inside them," said Doctor Richard Low, CEO of Praxis EMR. "Praxis is the only template-free EHR and this is why physicians prefer it to other systems. Templates do not work in medicine because they limit decision making. By learning a physician's individual approach, Praxis saves hours every day and enables high levels of medical quality. On the other hand, template EHRs turn doctors into data-entry clerks, forcing them to use templates in order to chart. That's why templates do not work in medicine," said Dr. Low.
Praxis EME has a long history of number one rankings. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) also ranked Praxis EMR the #1 EHR by physicians in its user satisfaction survey "Physicians Who have Switched EHRs." As in past AAFP EHR surveys, Praxis EMR ranked first place in user satisfaction, but in this survey physicians were asked to rate their new system after having switched EHRs. Praxis outranked 73 other EHR systems with the largest percentage of physicians who strongly agreed, "I am happy with our new EHR system."
"Praxis lets me practice my high quality of medicine my own way, says John Davis, MD, from his Birmingham based Grayson Valley Family Practice. Praxis is fast and smart and has the best practice guidelines in medicine. Praxis literally automates my chronic patients."
As the US Healthcare system moves towards universal Electronic Healthcare Records, Praxis EMR is dedicated to helping practicing physicians practice medicine their own way instead of being forced into standardized templates. Praxis believes that maintaining physician individuality and freedom while charting is essential to improving medical quality, lowering costs, and improving physicians' income.
