Urology Case Study

"Praxis... very much a cornerstone of my practice."


EMR choice - Decision for Praxis

A Non-Template Solution

Praxis was already offering what looked to be a very good software program in 1997, and it has indeed since proven to be very much a cornerstone of my practice.  The templates that other EMRs are built around offer little over and above preprinted forms. Praxis avoids this restrictive and repetitive method by basing the EMR on an artificial intelligence engine they call 'Concept Processing'. This allows me to practice urology my own way, rather than how a template tells me."

Dr Tall's Praxis EMR Advantages

The Praxis Concept Processor

"Hand written prescriptions have been obsolete for years.  Praxis helps me to remember each and every obscure dosage of those drugs I only occasionally prescribe. Long and complex cases have to be entered just once and then only modified briefly for each patient, thanks to the way the Concept Processor recalls my own words and phrases from similar past cases. Looking at what has been done for other patients with the same complaint is a reminder of what I should be considering with the patient in front of me. Praxis acts like my own personal checklist, to ensure I keep my standards of medicine as high as possible."

Seamless Billing Interface

"Interfacing with billing software has faithfully been accomplished and both Praxis and EZ Healthcare have worked together well for a successful interface. Support, training and value are outstanding. I feel that in choosing my EMR and billing software separately, and having them interfaced, I get the best of both worlds."

A Company You Can Trust to Deliver

"My enthusiasm for Praxis is not dependent on payment for endorsement. I am writing this as an indication of my personal positive experience. Praxis has faithfully maintained and updated an outstanding product. My only investment in this company was my first purchase price. There has been no gouging, and no nickel and dime tricks."

Once You Use Praxis, You'll Never Want to Go Back

"I use Praxis to generate pre-op history/physicals/orders when admitting or planning surgery from the office.  This convenience is most evident when I return to an oral history/dictation through a hospital dictation system for emergency and weekend patients who have not been entered into the Praxis database."


"Praxis has faithfully maintained and updated an outstanding product."


Praxis Keeps Getting Faster and Better With Repeated Use

"As a solo Urologist, I use Praxis in the office for documenting office visits and procedures and for hospital admissions. With Praxis it takes less time to document a hospital admission, complete with orders, with a few quick keystrokes and typed modifications, than it takes for a new problem without prior documentation. Entering a new problem does take more time, composition and initial effort, but it is well worth this initial effort in the long run. Once you have been the scribe for the new problem, it is there for modification and improvement for the next series of patients with the same, or a similar, problem. Having documented the common office procedures, my careful wording is reproduced for future patients, leaving me free to practice medicine and visit with my patients while Praxis documents my work and acts as a reminder to help me ensure I keep the highest possible standards of care."

Dr Tall's Final Thoughts on Praxis EMR

"Those carefully considering Praxis will ask about return on investment (ROI).  What better investment than a system that makes you a better physician, improves your documentation and therefore increases your ability to demonstrate your performance to others (and in doing so, gets you paid what you deserve)?  Ask yourself if you have ever been in this situation:  It is the end of the long day.  You fell behind and gave up dictating or even taking cryptic notes and have to now finish your records for that day, before going home or to the hospital for evening rounds. You have to ask yourself if you gave Bactrim to Mrs. Schmertz or Mrs. Barnes… and can't remember. Once I actually called the patient to find out!  It was at that point I looked into something better, and found Praxis"

"Pay for performance will only enhance the return on investment with Praxis EMR.  If you can come up with something better, please do tell me about it! I have been using Praxis on a daily basis for nearly a decade and find that it is only getting better."
