Praxis Electronic Medical Records Announces New Version 5 With Breakthrough in EHR Documentation
Date:10/28/2009

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Infor-Med Corporation, makers of Praxis Electronic Medical Records (EMR), announced today the beta release of Praxis Version 5 featuring Datum, a tool that allows physicians to use free text to create, store, and share discrete clinical data. The Praxis Datum engine guarantees full qualification for Federal stimulus funds and is designed to meet future 'meaningful use' guidelines.

With Federal stimulus funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) on the horizon, US physicians are gearing up to go paperless. The HITECH Stimulus Act promotes Electronic Medical Record adoption by reimbursing physicians for using a certified EMR. Those providers who fail to adopt an EMR will eventually face Medicare penalties.

Praxis EMR allows physicians the unrestrained use of free text to document medicine in their own words. All other EMRs are based on templates. While most template-based EMRs do offer data fields with embedded codes, they require doctors to select from cumbersome pick-lists. Datum seamlessly embeds discrete data within free text during the clinical encounter.

Based on a unique technology called 'Concept Processing,' an intelligent neural network, Praxis EMR becomes progressively faster and smarter by learning from the physician using it. Physicians using Praxis 5 with Datum can chart rapidly with complete freedom while also producing discrete data required by third parties.

"This is a major breakthrough in Electronic Medical Record Technology," said Clayton Reynolds, MD, FACP, a medical quality expert. "Until now doctors were being forced to use template based EHRs to collect data for quality improvement and reimbursement purposes. With Praxis they no longer have to," he added.

Datum is part of Praxis Version 5, and will be in general release to meet CCHIT Certification and HITECH Stimulus reimbursements. Datum qualifies physicians for Physician Quality Reporting Initiatives (PQRI), Pay for Performance (P4P) programs, and enables interoperability with national Electronic Health Records, without giving up the physician focus of an Electronic Medical Record.

Using Praxis Version 5 offers a way for physicians to transition from Defensive Medicine to Evidence-Based Medicine.
