Template-Free Electronic Medical Record Wins AAFP User Satisfaction Survey.

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Praxis(R) EMR was named the top EMR in the 2008 User Satisfaction Survey, held by the American Academy of Family Physicians, (AAFP) with 93,000 members nationwide.

"This is wonderful news," said Doctor Richard Low, CEO of Infor-Med Corporation, makers of Praxis EMR, "Praxis is the only EMR not based on templates, and this is why physicians prefer it to other EMRs. Templates turn doctors into technicians, forcing them to use rigid pick-lists in order to describe complex situations. Medicine is an art and no two doctors practice the same way. By learning each physician's individual approach, Praxis EMR documents patient encounters in the physician's own words. Using this software helps doctors save time and practice better medicine."

The AAFP study results were based on a survey of 422 family physicians currently using EHR systems. Of 61 systems reported, the 13 most popular were surveyed in depth. Praxis EMR won first place in overall customer satisfaction, ease of use and flexibility, customer support and training, and overall cost savings. In addition, Praxis EMR was the only system to have 100% of respondents agree that they would never go back to using paper records.

The uniqueness of Praxis EMR lies in its core technology. Praxis utilizes a neural-network engine called a Concept Processor that constantly learns from previous encounters to chart progressively faster and more effectively. "In essence, each provider becomes his own best teacher," said Doctor Low.

"This Survey is based on EMR users in Family Medicine, a discipline that has the most templates available," said Clayton L Reynolds, MD, FACP, FACPE, Endocrinologist and medical quality expert. "Praxis EMR does well in that environment, despite the large number of competing systems. Praxis also performs well in more specialized areas of medicine, where it has no serious competition because there are far fewer templates available for subspecialties."

Praxis is a CCHIT Certified EMR.
