Praxis EMR, an award-winning developer of electronic medical records (EMR/EHR) software received the highest satisfaction ratings in two major physician-user surveys released independently by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and Black BookMarket Research in 2015.
The American Academy of Family Physicians ranked Praxis EMR the #1 EHR by physicians in its survey "Physicians Who have Switched EHRs."

The American Academy of Family Physicians' (AAFP) Family Practice Management Journal has released a new report outlining physician coercion when switching EHRs. The survey shows doctors are being forced to switch EHRs and points to widespread dissatisfaction among physicians who've switched. Most respondents claim that their new EHR does not improve productivity, and only 39% of physicians are happy with their new systems.

Praxis EMR is in the news! This time, Praxis was covered on the front page of the New York Times!
As Praxis EMR could not fully comment in the article, we'd like to reiterate what we reported to The New York Times last week.
It is true that Praxis EMR can increase reimbursements for physicians who see cases covered by Medicare or by other insurance providers based on Levels of Service Codes. This is not a result of cheating the system, however, but the result of practicing higher quality medicine. Praxis EMR helps doctors work smarter and better document their work, resulting in higher reimbursements. Why should physicians not be compensated for providing superior quality service? Currently, many physicians and billers alike undercode in fear of Medicare denials. Praxis EMR corrects this problem by reminding doctors to complete all of the tasks outlined under Medicare guidelines, allowing them to provide high-quality care and charge fairly.
