Frost & Sullivan Awards Infor-Med for its Electronic Medical Record Technology

Facilitating Knowledge Sharing among Physicians

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the healthcare IT market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Infor-Med, Inc. with the 2008 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation for its novel Praxis(R) Electronic Medical Records (EMR) version 4, featuring the Praxis(R) EMR Knowledge Exchanger.

The Praxis(R) EMR system employs a unique technology that does not include inherently limiting templates, so it provides enhanced documentation and legal protection of a patient's medical history because the physician enters the data and all instructions in his/her own words.

By incorporating the innovative Knowledge Exchanger, which is part of Praxis(R) EMR v.4, physicians can instantly benefit from the medical knowledge of their peers while maintaining their own, completely separate knowledge base that self-learns as patient EMRs are added to the system.

EMRs can essentially be categorized into template-based electronic records or no-template electronic records. Template-based solutions are highly structured. They limit the healthcare provider to the topics and choices provided by the software to describe symptoms and treatments, whereas the no-template choice offers the physician total control over the document and the way the information is presented.

The Praxis(R) EMR has an edge over template programming because its Concept Processing technology is dynamic and develops naturally, whereas template programming is static and inherently limiting. Although templates do allow for quick and easy documentation, they restrict the physician from expressing the details that will maintain the integrity of the physician's interaction with each patient. Infor-Med's Praxis(R) EMR is a unique template-free solution that eliminates the restrictions of templates while matching their ease and speed of use. The Praxis(R) version 4 Knowledge Exchanger makes the use of templates obsolete.

While the regulatory agencies call them electronic health records (EHR), the term Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is used by many in healthcare. EHR or EMR is simply a matter of preference. Some vendors make a case that EHR is a more inclusive term, but there is no evidence that EHRs are any different from EMRs in what they can do to relieve the physician's documentation burden.

The new Praxis EMR has helped Praxis provide physicians with a paper-free, accurate, secure, and completely interoperable medical practice with all the patient privacy required by HIPAA.
