Infor-Med, Inc. Announces New Praxis EMR Version 4 with The Praxis Knowledge Exchanger(R)
Date:11/9/2007

Market leading EMR now offers rapid start-ups, without forcing doctors into

templates.

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Infor-Med Corporation today announced the pre-release of Praxis Electronic Medical Records Version 4, featuring the new Praxis EMR Knowledge Exchanger. The dynamic tool allows physicians to tap into the knowledge of other clinicians enabling rapid start- ups for new users and enhanced charting capabilities for long-time Praxis users. Industry experts site major advantages of neural-network thinking over template-based systems.

"Doctors don't like being forced to enter data into rigid fields repetitively and that's exactly what they are reduced to with templates," said Clayton Reynolds, MD, FACP, FACPE, a medical quality expert. "It's the inherent limitations of template technology and constraints of pick-lists that turn physicians into mere technicians. Medicine is very much an art form and no two doctors practice the same way." Praxis Electronic Medical Records is based on a unique neural-network technology called Concept Processing that documents each case progressively faster and better by learning from the provider's previous encounters.

"Praxis EMR has by far the best note generator on the market," said Daniel Griffin, MD, winner of the 2006 HIMSS Davies award for EMR implementation." At issue, though, was the perceived time investment required to start using an EMR without pre-set templates. Now, a new Praxis user receives an immediate infusion of medical knowledge enabling a rapid launch into electronic charting. The medical knowledge acts like a window into another expert's mind. However, unlike a template, once the new knowledge is imported, it adapts and grows exponentially following the doctor's own thinking process. "It's very exciting!" says Griffin.

The new Praxis Knowledge Exchanger provides a first-time user with specialty-specific methodologies and texts to begin charting almost immediately. It also enables seasoned users to benefit from the knowledge of fellow practitioners, share their own clinical knowledge, and contribute to the advancement of medicine.

"Template based EMR systems function within a static framework, "said Richard M. Low, MD, CEO of Infor-Med Corporation. " Also, due to their structured nature, templates do not grow organically like Praxis knowledge bases do. We believe the knowledge exchanger will revolutionize medicine, one practice at a time."
