Praxis v5 Enables Data Collection from Free Text and Automates Meaningful Use
Palo Alto, Calif., June 11, 2012 – Praxis Electronic Medical Record has been awarded Frost & Sullivan’s prestigious annual award for Technology Innovation in Clinical Documentation.
The newly released Praxis EMR v5 introduces groundbreaking features that allow users to pull data from free text, build custom queries, and automatically fulfill Meaningful Use criteria. This is the second time that Praxis EMR has received such an honor from Frost & Sullivan; Praxis was the winner of the 2008 award for Technology Innovation in Healthcare Information Technology.
Praxis EMR v5 presents Datum, the first-ever tool to resolve the incompatibility between naturally-written text and concrete data. With Datum, it is now possible to embed discrete data into free text, as well as to pull data from free text. This is made possible by the Praxis DataMiner, the most powerful query engine in medicine. Praxis DataMiner allows users to query any information in the Praxis database or build their own queries. These query capabilities present limitless opportunities for research organizations and clinical studies.
Praxis EMR is the only software that automates Meaningful Use and other third-party reporting initiatives. The clinical quality measures used to attest to Meaningful Use are built into Praxis EMR and are queried automatically. In other words, the structure of Praxis ensures that practitioners meet Pay for Performance, Meaningful Use, and other third-party reporting initiatives instantly and at the point of care.
"We were impressed by how the Praxis EMR has the ability to make the daily lives of doctors easier and more efficient," observed Frost & Sullivan analyst Nancy Fabozzi. “Praxis facilitates engagement with EMR technology and helps make the practice of medicine more rewarding."
"Praxis is changing the way doctors practice medicine," said Dr. Richard Low, CEO and founder of Infor-Med Corporation, the maker of Praxis. "The innovations in Praxis v5 have huge implications for the way doctors conduct research and attest to Meaningful Use. We are pleased that Frost & Sullivan has recognized our impact for a second time."
The recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Award in Technology Innovation is selected after rigorous analysis of the leading companies in medical documentation. It is awarded to the company that best exhibits uniqueness of technology, impact on new products and functionality, impact on customer value, and innovation with relevance to the industry.
