Pros: Ease of use. As the EMR learns from your previous patient encounters it makes charting on new patients a breeze. As an example, if you have an abscess to drain the EMR remembers your orders (antibiotics, etc) from a previous patients and pulls them forward for you to select instead of having to search for orders again.

Cons: Took some prep time to get the software to learn my patient encounters. Now that it has learned them it makes seeing new patients easy because the system learns from the previous encounters as I go forward.

Cons: I have found no cons with this software at all - I've been using EMR systems for 17 years and Praxis EMR is unlike any I have used before

Pros: I have found this to be a true thinking person's software. Rather than being fed a template created by someone else, the user actually creates his/her own template for differenet assessments and modifies it continually over time. In only a few months, and with excellent training support, I've found the software to already have become not just easy to use but remarkably, sometimes amazingly, predictive. I often find myself shocked at the completeness of an assessment for a new patient, and all in my own words. The support has been amazing, from the initial interaction with the Sales Force, to the Training Sessions, to the Interface Team. I don't remember ever meeting a team, in any field, that was as available, as knowledgeable, or as supportive as this one. Everyone with whom I've had contact seems to have a genuine interest in the product, and in helping me to be successful in its use.
In a world where physicians are increasingly inconvenienced, it's a breath of fresh air to interact with a well-thought-out product and with a group of people who are so kind, so well-informed, and so diligent.
I have no reservation in recommending this product

Cons: Nothing .

Overall: ease of use, flexibility, great support

Pros: Easy Navigation - our provider did not purchase X-Link so we had to manually enter all data, even with that it was very user friendly and not as big of a hassle as we originally thought. Easy Implementation - it is so user friendly that it was easy to jump right in and start using for our practice, made daily operations so much easier! Learns you as you use it, which makes our providers job easier when it comes to seeing patients and dictating charts

Cons: Have not found any as of today, even with having to manually enter patients and set up the schedule for upcoming months it was a simpler transition than we thought

Praxis gives me the tools to practice more efficiently, and record my notes more easily.

Pros: Praxis keeps getting better the more I use it. It is amazing how it adjusts to my practice. Instead of being stuck with somebody else's EMR templates, Praxis learns from how I use it. With each patient encounter, Praxis learns how I approach each diagnosis and uses this with future encounters on other patients. Documenting visits, ordering tests, generating letters and handouts, prescribing meds, complying with Medicare requirements all done easily with Praxis.

Cons: There is some time needed at the beginning to set up this EMR so it works optimally for each provider, but this investment in time is worth every minute, because forever after the program works just the way you want it to. After the initial start up, Praxis keeps learning from each encounter, so using it gets easier and the tools more powerful the more you use it.

I initially purchased Praxis as a DOS user in the 1990s and have seen it from the beginning.

Pros: Unlike other EMR programs that require you to create templates and spend a lot of time clicking, praxis works on a unit of though concept. Anything you want to do repetitively you can easily "save with knowledge" while working with a live patient and that information will be there for you to use in the future. This can be as simple as saving an order for compression hose for a patient to use the next time I need to use it, or as complex as having the program query my lab database to present the last several labs that apply to each of their chronic conditions .
Praxis also sorts your "units of though" you have saved by frequency of use, and it can help you find what you are looking for quickly in an unusual way for an EMR. If you start with a prescription, it will show you all of the "assessments (units of thought) that you have every used that prescription for.
It also helps you remember the things that you might otherwise forget in an incidental visit. Any items such as have they had their flu shot? Did they get their pneumonia vaccine? Did you do the things you decided are best for the patient?
Also when you combine several assessments on the same visit for the patient, they all appear in the same note and are not hidden on some other page or drop down menu, or in a sub note like many EMRs.
Their support is quite remarkable. Anyone in the office can open a chat, and praxis is there within seconds to address the issue and record it to send to t

Cons: Since praxis has been developed over decades with input from the physician users, rather than a team of programmers from a venture capital firm, it doesn't plug you into someone else's thought process. I could use the analogy of a word processing program. Anyone can open up "Word" and just type, but it can do so much more, that actually requires you to put a little effort into it. That can be annoying in word, but when you learn it, your horizons open up and you can do so much more.

As I mentioned above, I purchased the program decades ago which included the upgrades over time. I had partners who didn't want to put the effort into using an EMR, so our office purchase another EMR. After just a short time the severe limitations of that program became apparent so they decided to subscribe to the EMR that our billing software company promoted and has bundled with an excellent accounts receivable program. That program also had severe limitations on what one could do. The training was very limited and I soon learned about template medicine. My partners finally realized that what they had in the Praxis program that they had not tried was far superior to these two programs. They discovered with a few hours of one on one training they already had a far superior program with Praxis. Praxis allows you to do your own queries if you are interested, or you can use the many already supplied, including those that are needed for reporting.

Overall: I believe I am much better able to do a good job caring for my patients and keeping complex histories and conditions better organized. I am better able to meet the increasing government requirements of reporting and tracking without that interfering as much with the doctor patient relationship.

Praxis allows me see what I want to see each time I see a patient for a given condition. Because of the use of discreet data, and the freedom for me to easily select what I want to see without having to hire a programmer to do it for me.

Example: for my patients with hypertension, I have trained praxis to print the last 3 Blood pressures recorded on the note.

For the diabetics, I list their last several A1c results, their urine for microalbumen and EGFR

For patients on meds for hyperlipidemia, I have it extract the last 3 lipid profiles,

For thyroid patients, I pull the last several TSH values, and for Obese patients, I can show the last weights.

If I want to see what medications I have tried for treating their depression, everything is listed since I started using the program, and a quick click on a box takes me to the encounter for that date.

Each physician or provider has their own unique way of doing things, so instead of having to agree on the templates that we want to use or have written for us, each of has our own and yet we can share what we have done with others, and if they want to use what we saved, they can easily import it, or just look and decide to do it their way.

The program has recently complied with new regulations so we have just received our own secure email so we can receive or send information to other providers with other platforms once those programs catch up to Praxis.

The assessments are so easy to create, that when I have a patient with unique needs, that I know I will need to create the same unusual lab order in the future, I can easily create a lab order that will be saved as "KNOWLEDGE" that could be specific for that patient to recall it in the future.
I can name these assessments whatever I want to since the assessment names are for my eyes only.
I do vasectomies, and the initial consultation complete with handouts is all part of one assessment, and the assessment for the actual procedure, creates the note, which is there for me to change anything but can also include any post op medications and instructions all as part of that assessment.
It would be painful for me to go to a template EMR

Pros: Praxis uses concept processor in place of templates which makes my notes unique and my own. I do things the way I like to do rather than following someone else templates. Once you grasp the basics the whole process becomes intuitive and very easy to follow. Praxis has kept up with changing CMS regulations and for end users that makes it very easy to meet the quality measures required by insurance companies. I have been very satisfied with Praxis over the years and find it to be a great EMR

Cons: I am a very satisfied user of Praxis and really can't think of any downside to this software. I use other EMRs in the hospitals and find them to be rather limited in view of their template format which forces you to comply with someone else thought process in filling out the template format. You end up spending a lot of time typing free text every time you want to record your own unique thought process - not so wit Praxis!

Pros: This is an assessment-based EMR that works for the physician who needs to document the encounter. I built up my assessments and at this point, I finish my notes very rapidly and the notes are of very high quality. The system is easy to add orders and can be customized easily. I use the "agent" function to send orders and messages throughout our work flow. This system interfaces with my local lab so my office staff are never manually scanning in paper copies of lab work. I was thrilled to note how fast my remote connection functions with Praxis, even though I don't have the fastest internet. This is not a template system, which is great. Prescribing drugs through the e-prescribe function works well and is easy to use.

Cons: I don't have a lot to say from a negative perspective.

My server is housed off-site, for cyper-security reasons. We did have irregular internet problem for a period of time, which meant that we did not have access to our records. I simply had my IT team get a firewall that could handle two internet sources. I have two internet suppliers and I always have access to my remote server and Praxis. Easy solution.

Overall: I finish my work quickly and I don't to work at home any more with this system. I don't ever want to give up using Praxis.

I had to change from a pure template system where I could never finish my notes until I got home. Soapware was my old system.

Pros: The use of Praxis is limited by your imagination. There is nothing that this EMR cannot do to make my practice easier. It has allowed me to provide better care to my patients, document better and keep up with the difficult regulations that are imposed on us. Support and training has been wonderfull and the team that administers this Praxis EMR company is caring and provide personal assitance.
With every upgrade, the system gets better, faster and it is truely better than all the EMRs that my colleagues have. I always finish the notes when I am done seeing the patients and I have access to my notes anywhere as long as I have internet access. Many of my peers who do not have Praxis EMR are not able to finish their charting due to the inefficiency of their EMR system. With Praxis EMR, the more I use it, the faster and more efficient it becomes for me to see patients.
With its setup, it has allowed me to keep up with all the regulations and documentation necessary for all the insurance companies. Even my billing is faster and more efficient. I can go on and on about how wondefull this EMR is......

Overall: It has made my office extremily efficient. It allowed me to document better, faster and provide better care for my patients. It has allowed my office to keep up with the regulations and the documentations necessary with the changes in the medicare payment model. It allowed my billing company to efficiently receive billing information electronically and start the billing process the same day the patient seen. It allowed me to be almost paperless by interfacing with imaging centers and laboratotries. I cannot say enought about this EMR, I dont know how we did without it in the past.

Pros: Praxis has a Concept Processor model that allows you to make your own template for problems thereby reminding me to order the appropriate tests for a specific problem. I am able to change this as time goes by. This is what attracted me to this EHR. I researched several EHR companies finally deciding on Praxis. I wanted a company that was stable and was going to be around for the future . I also wanted a program that would have the ability to change to meet the requirements of the government or physicians. Because of the government, new burdens are placed on us every year and I feel that Praxis rises up to the challenge. I started off with my own server in my office and now I am using the cloud server. Customer service is very fast and prompt. The price I feel is reasonable. No EHR is perfect but I feel that Praxis fits almost of all of my EHR needs.

Cons: EHR's are never fast enough, but Praxis does a good job in keeping up with me. I am sure every EHR user feels the same way.

Praxis is the by far the best, most intuitive EMR I¿ve ever used.

Pros: We transitioned to Praxis one year ago and the implementation was surprisingly smooth. Once Praxis begins to learn you and you continue to save more notes, charting begins to simply take care of itself. Where I used to be in the office until 7:00 or later charting, I now often leave the office at 5:30 with all my charts, phone calls, refills, etc... done.

Since Praxis doesn¿t require you to click through templates, I get to spend the visit with the patient making eye contact not stuck behind a computer.

Reimbursements continue to become more and more value based. Praxis easily helps you make sure you are hitting your benchmarks with the documentation to back it up.

By utilizing a practice management solution that typically partners with Praxis, we are working on essentially automating the billing process.

The ultimate EMR would be one that, when it is working at it¿s best, you would barely know that it was there. Instead you simply find yourself practicing medicine with a tool helping you do so efficiently and with excellence. In my experience Praxis is the only EMR that begins to fill that goal.

Cons: No EMR is perfect. Praxis has been beyond responsive to our requests for improvements. They are driven by the users and creating the best experience possible. It has been refreshing to have a software company listen to our concerns as opposed to telling what we want.

Awesomely pro-physician in meeting ever increasingly complex bureaucratic hoops.

Pros: I have got to put in kudos to InfoMed for my Praxis EMR. I have no complaints about the support I have received as I completed my meaningful use Years 1-5 2010-2014 to earn my CMS incentive for early adoption. I have been waiting for approval for MIPS participation through the new 7th version for the new v 7 Praxis which was release and certified by for meaningful use a few weeks ago. 2018 will be our year to institute surface pro tablets for each provider and nurse to make us mobile in the hospital as well as in the office. Again I compliment Praxis for allowing me to capture all my charges at point of service, keeping my documentation bulletproof from retrospective level of service audits, streamline and update my maintenance of quality indicators and permitting to hyperlink my reference sites with my patients. I will now begin using the multiple diagnosis global assessments to streamline my documentation even further. Onward and upward. Thank you, InfoMed!

Overall: As a solo primary care office and hospital Family Practice physician I work hard to make use of all the exceptional features available in both setting with this amazing software. That is why I rely so heavily on InforMeds exceptional training staff. I can manage my patients from the mountains, beach and even when a locum tenems is covering my practice in an emergency as long as I have internet access to connect to Praxis.

Comments: I recommend Praxis EMR to any practice looking for a solution that can be customized to fit your practice and the way you want to work - not dictated by preset templates.

Pros: We were searching for an adaptable system that could be tailored to our practice and our procedures. Praxis EMR has proven to be that system. We were able to create Practice Advisories which target every aspect of Clinical Measures we wish to track.

Cons: It would be great if the system could know what I am thinking - it almost feels like it does already. I simply wish we had found Praxis EMR sooner.

I call it " The Apple of EMRs' ". Simple and user friendly but enables you to do very sophisticated work with reasonable time.

Comments: I recommend praxis for anyone who want to be free of the tem plet world and efficient.

Pros: Praxis is good value for the money and it's all in the cloud, so no server required. The way it works. Highlighting and de-highlighting concepts instead of typing or picking through standardized texts. It saves lots of time and you can customize it in any way you want to each specific patient.

Cons: Yet to find out. I have been using it since 2008. it seems difficult in the beginning but the personal trainer will make sure you mastered it.

Comments: I couldn't even think of using an EMR that is a template based system. I've heard from doctors that use them, "then you can type in your own words on top of the templated documentation", and I say, "exactly, but why would I want to have to do that each and every time", with Praxis, you teach it once then it remembers it for ever, for example how I document a left medial knee steroid injection is learned by Praxis and I never have to enter the exam followed by the consent documentation followed by the procedure documentation followed by the followup instruction, again with Praxis "you teach it once and it remembers it forever". But beyond this (and this by it's self makes Praxis by far better than most EMR's, ) you can teach Praxis to remember specifics about the individual patient..."the cholecystectomy scar in Jim's right upper abdominal quadrant is well approximated and healed well"... and "Jim's left mid forearm shows a red and black sailors tattoo faded but still visible" ect ect. But to go even further, and this is where Praxis is far and above any other EMR out there is Praxis's "concept processor" ability to shine with the new Pay for Performance requirements. With Praxis, you teach it once and it remembers for ever in this case with "Datum +". With Medicare now requiring us to provide patient data for the Pay for Performance, it becomes easy to mine for any and all requirments. For example, Praxis can easily provide "all the Diabetics with A1c's 7.0 or less who are also on an ACE Inhibitor and have a LDL of 75 or less" and include the patients names, dob and any other data. This is all done automatically, without any extra work (or buttons to push).

Pros: It's not template, it learns from me and from my documentation (can you imagine what the Lawyers could say if my notes were simply a template and that everyone's progress note says the same, I wouldn't have a leg to stand on)

Cons: It takes some time to build up your progress notes, after that, documentation becomes a breeze and easy.

Comments: I have used two other EMR systems and they were frustrating at best; dangerous for the patient at worst.

Pros: This EMR was obviously designed by a physician. There is no mindless clicking. The system works like a doctor thinks and not like the billing department''s mentality. The medical memory produces most of the necessary note. The system also remembers the individual patient's individual exam so I don't have to re-create chronic findings for each visit. I use Praxis seamlessly with Dragon naturally speaking. Support for the EMR has been magnificent with them taking over fixing any problems in the background while I continue to see patients.

Cons: No significant cons for Praxis EMR. I am eagerly awaiting their next conversion and to see what they have added.

Comments: Customer and IT support has been excellent. Everyone is very helpful and easily accessible when you need them. Training was just enough and able to get more when needed. We had a previous EMR and also looked at several others prior to purchasing Praxis. Praxis is hands down the best system out there.

Pros: Praxis is extremely easy to use and navigate. Charting has become easy and real time. Easy to view patient notes, reports, labs and document. I love the eprescribe - very easy to use.

Cons: It takes time to develop your notes/templates but once you start the process you can become efficient quickly. Staff training can be difficult depending on their level of computer skills.

Comments: I am SO happy that I chose Praxis for my EMR. It is one of the best decisions that I made for my practice. I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!!

Pros: As a clinician, what I really, really like about Praxis is the way I can chart in my own style and words, without a rigid template being forced upon me. It allows me to document various types of clinic visits exactly the way that I would like to, and its concept processor allows me to build a library of knowledge as I chart patients which I can pull from for future applicable cases. It helps me be more thorough, careful and accurate in my documentation, and helps me chart faster, too! Praxis helps me be a better doctor. Another fabulous aspect of Praxis is their EXCELLENT customer service, by far the BEST that I had experienced when I was looking around for an EMR for my practice and has remained great since I've gone ahead and signed on with Praxis. Everyone that I have encountered on their team - my sales representative, the administrative staff, the implementation managers, my trainer, and Dr.Low himself, are all so professional, nice, helpful and knowledgeable. They are consistently prompt in getting back to me whenever I have any questions. They have consistently made me feel valued and supported as a client, and I appreciate that very much. Having Praxis makes transitioning to and having an EMR, which I thought would be a stressful and problematic experience, actually very enjoyable.

Pros: Both customer support and training are excellent. The ability to design and modify my own office visit templates and lab panels is great. I use a lot of botanicals and compounded meds in my practice, and the program is flexible to handle those. E-prescribing log is very helpful to see what has been sent.

Cons: Some of my patients have had trouble navigating the patient portal, but Praxis is addressing that issue on several fronts: releasing a new version in very near future, new video for patients on how to use the portal, and personal support when occasionally necessary.

EMR is inevitable. Praxis makes it palatable with great training, staff availability, affordability.

Pros: There are no preconceived templates. The notes are in my own words. I do not feel as if I am cookie cutting my notes and I can make each encounter as personalized as possible. The staff is extremely available and ready to help. There is no longer a need to "create a ticket" and hope someone who understands your question can get back to you within a reasonable amount of time.

Cons: any con I can think of is related to the whole concept of EMR and bot takers to Praxis. Since we have to use an EMR I am happy I am using Praxis.

Overall: Notes are more organized and better thought out. I can more easily reference past visits.

Pros: Most versatile. Can customize it to any type of practice. Can use cloud or local server. Easy to learn and set up.

Cons: It can't do my taxes! It can't read my mind. It isn't freeware. It still requires computer knowledge.

Overall: It has helped me adequately document the services I provide patients. I can see important history and events for my patients without wading through a thick chart.

Excellent System. We would never go back to paper.

Pros: We looked at most every large vendor system and all had the same limitation, you had to use templates so the notes sounded stilted or were simply unreadable. With Praxis our notes read as though we dictated them. They flow well and convey information in the way we think. Creating your own templates will take some time but you can modify them as you work. No need to call IT or tech support. You can dictate into the system as well, I think, but we never have done that. The trainers learned our practice style, a bit about our specialty (Sleep Medicine) and we decided to set the system up differently than is normally done. It worked great and Praxis software is flexible enough that we could do that. Most importantly, once we were up and running it didn't really slow us down. It also made for more complete notes. The query bit makes it easy to search your patient base when you are doing the Performance Improvement projects that the ACOs require.

Overall: It allowed us to have notes that "sounded like us", not like some robot. It is easy to change the "templates" as we go along. It gives us more complete notes.

I had Praxis since I opened my practice. It allows me to use EMR the way I wanted.

Pros: I am able to use it the way I want. I don't have to rely on templates. If I want to change the prepopulated information I need not to ask any tech support and can do it myself. My partners don't have to use my settings and template and can do their own changes. I am able to chart a level 4 follow up in less then 3-4 minutes while talking to patient. New patient may be 15 minutes while with patient and 7-8 minutes if I do it afterwards. Even if I don't have a medical assistant and I have to take patient back myself doing all the vital signs, I can still do a follow up in 5 -6 minutes. New patient information will take longer.

Cons: When praxis first comes it is completely blank, it will take you 18 -20 hours to create all templates. If you want you may import any other Physician's templates and thst will make it easier. However this is the way you get to create it the way you like. This also allows you to know how Praxis works so I recommend that you do take this time.

Overall: Made it easier to chart.

Pros: This is the most versatile software on the market. Great company with people very invested in making their software the best. The most responsive people I have ever worked with!

Cons: I wish I started my medical career with Praxis. I would have made everything so much easier. The time it takes to make it your own is really worth it!

Overall: This software makes my life as a clinician vastly easier. Quality clinic notes that meet industry guidelines and are not just clones of previous notes, like many software products on the market

Praxis allows us to finish our notes in a timely manner.

Pros: Nice to have a system that is not template based. Notes are created and fined tuned as you go. No more clicking. Create your common notes based on diagnosis. Similar patient notes can be created and modified as you go. Big time saver.

Cons: You must devote the hours to train. This is not a con but very important for any EMR. Because the system is not canned you will need to train to reap the benefits.

Overall: Faster charting

Medical students have commented that system was easier than their med school system.

Pros: The program has a Conceptual processor (not templates) which is extremely flexible, quick and this makes PRAXIS unique when compared to all other EMR's. Having used templates before it is an easy start but as the data is placed in the template EMR it becomes cumbersome, slower and more difficult to use. PRAXIS self learns your practice patterns and improves with time. After 16 years of using PRAXIS I still make daily micro improvements to my knowledge base as medicine changes. I go to an OB/GYN conference and learn a new treatment and at home I create a new virtual patient for my data base and throw away my notes.

Pros: Eliminates the hassles of documentation. I can document a new patient encounter in under 30 seconds. I don't have to keep n changing screens. Can set up my PA and ARNP to practice the way I do.

Cons: seamless integration with our billing software. They are working on a patient kiosk to help eliminate paper. Can use instant medical history to help patients do H&P. Hopefully, one-day EMR's will have all options combined.

Overall: Allows me to practice the way I want too

Comments: Any EMR, and we looked at many of them, will take a few months to adapt to. That will be the same with Praxis. As much as that was a stress and slowed us down for a few weeks, we would never go back to paper nor have we ever seen a system that would be better for us than Praxis. One thing that impressed us was that Dr. Low, founder of the company, got involved personally when we were trying to make some adaptations to make Praxis better fit our practice. He is very much hands on and will do whatever is necessary to be sure you have a positive experience and a system that will work for you and your patients. Look at as many EMRs as you can and carefully chose the one that best fits you and your practice style. Don't make that choice lightly.

Pros: The system produces a document that reads very much like one you would dictate. It is very easy to customize and alter the "template" as often as necessary. Each clinician can have their own "template". The sentences show up grayed out and you simply click on the ones you want to include in the note. No drop down boxes to navigate. Chart review is easy, although it will be nice when you can open multiple windows at once side by side to compare visits or labs. The system has not slowed us down significantly compared to dictating. You can set up different physical exam templates so that follow up visits have a different set of choices than new patient visits. Our specialty is sleep medicine so we have not used the system to pull in labs, send out prescriptions or order tests, make follow up appointments, etc. One very nice feature is that you can set up the "templates" so that you can have an MA go in and basically read through the history "template" and click on the relevant bits. The clinician can come in, review it with the patient, and the history is complete and documented. All the clinician needs to do is click through the exam, click on an assessment and the plan and you are done. This allows you to complete the chart while you are there with the patient and go on to the next one. Praxis also makes it easy to review the charts of the mid-level providers (NPs and PAs) and sign off on them as their supervisor.

Cons: Not much in the way of Cons, just things to consider in looking at Praxis. A great deal of time will be necessary to put the "templates" together and modify them to your liking. It is time well spent to get it set up as close to perfect as possible. The process is simple. We just dictated our normal history and assessments into a Word doc, cut and pasted into the Praxis "template" and modified them a bit as time went along. It is time consuming but simple. The trainers are very good and can walk you through that. If you have a practice where the history and PE are fairly different and nuanced from one patient to another, neurology would be an example, this process will be somewhat more complex. You can dictate into the history section if you prefer to do that. The downside of doing that is that you cannot complete the chart in the room.

Comments: I've been using Praxis for a year. It's a pretty awesome program. The design allows docs to build templates on the fly and reuse the same templates and modify them for each patient. The templates and modifications can be saved as new templates and pulled up based on assessments. If you've got a patient with multiple assessments, then pull up one or more of the completed templates and build a report as a collection of templates. For instance if someone has elevated homocysteine, then once you've built a template for this assessment, each time another case has this imbalance, the full template can be pulled in containing diagnosis codes, patient educational info, recommended diet and lifestyle changes, meds or supplements and description of the condition. Write it once and it's there whenever you need it again.

Pros: Easy template use, smart software, great customer support.

Cons: I'm waiting for patient portal for patients to fill out history online, to be incorporated directly into chart so that no manual entries will be required for this step. It's a feature that is in the pipeline and should speed up the patient management and reporting considerably.

Comments: The best way I can describe Praxis is that it was written by a doctor with real-world workflow experience with the help of programmers. Other EMRs I have seen and used have been written by programmers with the help of doctors. It is a visionary program which can actually allow you to be faster with Praxis than you are on paper.

Pros: It can learn from the individual provider and customize itself to the way each provider likes to do things.

Cons: I can't think of one.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you have a busy clinic and want to maintain the quality of care you provide, this is the product for you. If you only see a handful of patients a day for the same thing over and over again then by all means, consider something else.

Comments: I've used Praxis in my own solo practice for many years, and have also used 2 different institutional EMR's (in teaching & in part time outside employment) for comparison. I'm impressed by how much better my EMR works in office practice.

Pros: Ease of integrating several diagnoses together for the same visit. Automatically remembering chronic findings to reduce need for editing. Remembers how I like to document and manage each kind of diagnosis, reduces editing for future similar patients.

Cons: None.

Recommendations to other buyers: If the government-required "Meaningful Use" features seem confusing at first, just practice the basic features until you feel confident, then gradually start using additional features. I've found that designing the best EMRs and the best practice management software require different skills from different companies, so I recommend finding the best of each rather than looking for a compromise of both in the same company.

Comments: I can't speak of the product itself, since we have not yet started using it consistently yet. The medical practice bought Praxis quite some time ago, but for some reason never implemented it in the practice. Recently, I've restarted the process, and Praxis has been helping my office with the necessary training for a smooth transition. Praxis has also released training videos which will help with training new employees and will be useful for just a quick refresher. I'm very excited to use Praxis in my office and hope it will help quicken our charting experience!

Comments: After extensive research regarding EMR's I came to the conclusion that Praxis would likely be a good solution. There are many EHR's out there, most being template based. What's unique about Praxis, and one of it's biggest selling points is the concept processor. The initial setup process takes a bit of time, but that time is well spent. You come up with a list of your most common cases that you see in you practice and then write a "template" for those cases. Since you are writing it, the notes will always be in your own words as opposed to you having to fit into a template with check boxes.

Pros: customizability, ease and speed of writing notes.

Cons: learning curve is higher initially

Comments: I have been using Infor-med Praxis EMR since 1990 because it was not template based, and Medicine being an art, has a nuances of personalily in the way you document your work which is not possible wih templates. The learning curve was no easy because the Concept Procesor was something I never heard off. After a couple of weeks i began to imput cases with amazing expediency and precision. One thing you must do with Praxis before anything else, or be done by your staff, is to input the demographics of your practice. Nothing will work well if the demographics are not in first. It also helps to have a Virtual Review of Systems as large as possible y and the most ample signs and symptons collected form various sources. If you do these, you will only have to type one or two letters to get the appropiate word you need instead of the whole word.

Pros: Always up to date with regulations. Hence you get paid faster and get no records returned for corrections. The 3 concomittant clocks (Arrival to Office), Time spent in the examining room for the doctor and theime spent with the doctor allowes you too fix and change the flow of patients in the office. Crystaline clear documentation that protects you in case of malpractice. Faster and more patient flow since you can interact with the patient and not only a screen and keyboad. Pts. hate that impersonal interaccion. Several integrated complementary subsystems that do not permite you to miss the input

Cons: Learning curve can be reduced by having the staff impunt the statistics while the system is set up so you can begin imputing patients since day one.

Comments: Praxis uses a constructive semantic engine to incorporate medical observations in the medical providers own language and terminology. It has always been a boon for physicians but physician assistants and nurse Practitioners particularly in a specialized area of care will find this the most readily customized electronic health record available.

Pros: This is the program that allows you to express your procedures and visits in the terminology you would use. You can link with evidence based resources and guidelines when needed.

Cons: Buy it and try it!

Recommendations to other buyers: This program allows integrity of documentation. If there is anything special or unique in what you do this is the EHR that will serve you.

Pros: The evolution of PRAXIS is physician directed and this is the key point. This is why PRAXIS ¿Kicks Ass¿ (please excuse the vulgarity) on all physician EMR surveys. The program has a Conceptual processor (not templates) which is extremely flexible, quick and this makes PRAXIS unique when compared to all other EMR¿s. Having used templates before, templates are an easy start but as the data is placed in the template EMR it becomes cumbersome, slower and more difficult to use. PRAXIS self learns your practice patterns and improves with time. After 15 years of using PRAXIS I still make daily micro improvements to my knowledge base as medicine changes.

Cons: To find the ideal EMR is like looking for the Holy Grail you will never find it! There is no perfect EMR and they all have some problems and I have looked at many.

Recommendations to other buyers: The more you use PRAXIS the speed of the program accelerates as it learns your thought patterns and I call it my personal neural network. Learning PRAXIS is similar to playing a musical instrument; difficult at first then it becomes a pleasure.

Pros: It allows me to provide much better patient care because it makes sure I don't forget to include labs, dDx, reminders, medication choices, or anything else I have previously done for a similar patient. Finished note looks like it has been dictated rather than formed from an EMR. It does not look like it is template driven because it is not. Great support from Praxis.

Cons: No complaints or regrets. Slightly steep learning curve, but it was well worth it.

Recommendations to other buyers: See how another Praxis user in your specialty uses it. You will be amazed at its ability to save you time, make your patient care and notes complete and at the innovation of the users in using the product not just the innovation of the vendor in developing it.

Pros: It's fast. I have used the program since graduating residency and never switched. I've been practicing now 13 years, and have been able to continually complete notes more and more quickly. I use other EMRs that are hospital and clinic-based, however, they are cumbersome and there is a lot of cut-and-paste. Not only is that not efficient, but I find I am much more likely to duplicate the wrong information into a patient's encounter note.

Cons: Nothing so far. As stated, I have used this in my primary practice, but have the opportunity to compare it with other EMR, and I find it superior.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look for speed and accuracy; that's the key when you are growing a busy practice. Don't get bogged down.

Pros: It's really fast! I have been using EMR for years. I became disillusioned with all of the templates. It was taking me an awfully long time to chart. I then did research on EMR's and only used independent reviews so I can get an unbiased review. That research led me to research that showed that practitioners that use Praxis are happier with it, have stayed longer than with other programs, and would recommend it to a colleague. One of the best things about this is the customer service. They respond quickly and if it's something I need help on, they do whatever they need to do for me.

Cons: Nothing. It's awesome and they are constantly adding new features. I love it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take a look. Read the reviews. Then call them. You won't regret it. I feel like I'm finally getting my life back.

Pros: The product is very user-friendly. Highly customizable. I like how it remembers how you document and integrates what you have done into new notes.

Cons: The database can be a bit of a resource hog and therefore need to make sure all computers have enough RAM to handle it.

Recommendations to other buyers: This product seems to learn how you enter your info in and it starts to make it easier the more you do it.

Pros: Speed! The Praxis "Concept Processor" charting engine learns the way you think, which enables you to chart with high levels of speed AND quality in ways that template-based EMRs simply can't. Praxis also helps you practice better medicine.

Cons: I have no complaints about this product. Praxis is a diamond in the rough of the otherwise template-based EMR wasteland.

Recommendations to other buyers: Talk to longtime users. There is a learning curve with Praxis and like many things in life, you have to put the time and effort into it to reap the rewards. This software literally transfers the doctor's brain into the computer. This process is slow at first but speeds up over time as Praxis learns the way you think. If you're looking for a system that's quick to learn, but not all that sophisticated then go with a template-based EMR.

Pros: I could make the program produce notes exactly the way I want them to look. Very intuitive

Cons: That I am no longer using it.
My previous negative review would be that it took a good bit of time to set up and learn Praxis, but boy was I wrong.

Overall: I was in a 2 partner practice and used praxis for 14 years. However I "gave up the ship" of private practice and was forced to switch from Praxis to one of the largest and supposed best EMR's. After one year of use, I still want to take a hammer to the computer. It is so onerous and counter intuitive. I am defiantly working an hour a day more to see the same number of patients, and have a much less impressive note

Recommendations to other buyers: Defiantly a product worth considering

Comments: Praxis is the best EMR on the market in my experience. It is an incredibly flexible system that allows me to chart in my own words and doesn't force me to constantly be choosing from tedious drop-down menus. The training and customer support teams are excellent and make the whole process easy, especially if you are not a tech-savvy person like me. Since switching to Praxis, my output and quality of care have increased significantly. I save time and get to see more patients in the day. Praxis actually learns from me and really fits my clinic's needs. It has been a joy to work with and I would absolutely recommend it to other physicians.

Comments: I was fed up with my old EHR, which was a constant headache, and decided to switch to Praxis. It is the best decision I've made for my practice. Praxis is the only EHR I've used that actually lets me customize my notes and write them the way I want. It helps me remember important details and gets easier to use the more I use it. Since making the switch to Praxis, I've saved tons of time and actually been able to go home early and spend more time with my family. By far the best product on the market that I have seen. Praxis customer support also made the whole installation and training process a breeze, which took the stress out of switching.

Comments: It's not often that I find a product that stands out so exceptionally from any other that I¿ve used. That product is Praxis EMR. Praxis, thus far, has been a wonderful addition to my practice. The system is designed to literally adapt to me, and as a slow typist, this is exactly what I needed. I¿m pretty much a computer-phobe as well and this system is not overly computerized. It works with free text which is amazing and I've adapted lots of my old style to it. All I do now is show Praxis my preferences in writing as I chart and make sure I save them for the future, and it¿s done. I¿m charting faster than I have in the past, and my notes are better overall. I¿ve gotten compliments and inquiries from colleagues because they can see the difference in my productivity and output. Overall, if you¿re tired standardized systems that make you click and click you should give this system a try. Training is great too. Support is well done. Nice people all around.

Pros: Praxis is really intuitive and easy to use. It's quite amazing as it learns my habits and preferences and the way I like to do things, as I chart throughout the day. I really feel that week to week, Praxis becomes smarter and my charting becomes better as a result. Praxis now save my a few hours a day minimum because charts are finished as I see patients.

Cons: I should have gotten Praxis earlier. I lost a and money on my old system. Be wary of 'free' EMRs. They are not free overall. I wasted lots of time with one, that was a nightmare.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try Praxis out, and I bet you'll never look back. It's a system that everything you put into it, you get back 20 times over, and at least in my own practice, it is nowhere near finished improving and getting better.

Comments: Every physician within specialty or other specialties, have different work flows. With Value care in the horizon, placing more burden to the Physician - Patient relationship, documentation becomes more disruptive. Contrary to most reports that an EMR do not make you work faster, my experience with Praxis at its current version allowed my output to be at 30 to 40% higher. 95% of notes completed as the encounter ends.

Redundant documentation eliminated. The Praxis sytem can mirror a Physician's thought process provided the Physician user have a logical process to his daily work flow on a case by case basis. I don't know of any existing product that mirrors this system and I am willing to challenge any other EMR user to a show down in terms of documentation and quality measures captured and addressed be it on a one day, one week or up to a 6 month outcome measure

Pros: Praxis is uncanny in that it just seems to get better all the time. It thinks like I do, and helps me remember all of the details that I often don't even have time to remember. This EMR is smart and fun to use. I looked at Praxis for years, and I am so happy I am using this system today.

Cons: This is the best EHR I have used by a long margin, and I used two prior systems. I definitely recommend trying Praxis. However, I do not like the fact that the government is now forcing us all to use EMRs. I think it's ridiculous. I use Praxis because it helps me chart very quickly and efficiently, and makes my life easier. I get home at 5:30 rather than at 7:30 in the evening.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give the Praxis system three months and you'll be glad you put the time in to do it right.

Pros: The best thing about this software is the ease with which you can document a note. There is no template, but instead the prior note for a certain diagnosis becomes the basis for the next note of the same diagnosis. This makes it easy and quick to document most notes, since most diagnoses are not new.

Cons: Tech support is available from 8am to 8pm Eastern time from Monday to Friday. Therefore, if there is a problem over the weekend, you need to wait until Monday to have the problem fixed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look for how easy it is for you to document a simple visit (sinusitis) and a complex visit (diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia). If it takes you too long to document, then the software will significantly slow you down. Look for a software that optimally would speed up the documentation process.

Comments: Praxis is a great EMR because it is customizes medical recording to each user. Instead of templates, Praxis builds on the recordings for each assessment for each user, so it becomes more efficient with each use. It includes many powerful features making clinical practice, record keeping and billing highly efficient.
The downside of a program so highly customizable is that it requires a considerable investment of time to get it up to speed. The training and on line support is terrific, and so this is completely achievable. The time spent is worth the investment in the long run because of many time saving features, and it allows documentation in the way physicians think rather than forcing an interaction based on a template.

Pros: I have been with this product for several years. The support people have responded quickly and efficiently to every problem we, or they, have had. I have been able to design my own visits as I prefer. I can add multiple bits of specific information, questions, or treatments with a handful of keystrokes. The product is truly limited only by the imagination of the doctor.

Cons: You really need someone else locally to do the basic IT setup. Praxis will help and is really easy to work with, but do not send a team of experts out to do the hardware itself. This is an issue with all of the smaller companies, as well as some of the largest.

Recommendations to other buyers: It works best to start slowly and be well-organized first. On paper, define the top 20-25 different visits you see. Then, define the variations you might see among these. If these are treated differently, they would be worth having a separate entry for each. The main entry would have drop-down subs to pick from. If you make a main one, you can duplicate it and add or delete and then save new ones.

Comments: If you are a zombie stop, this program requires you to practice medicine so choose something else that you do not have to think.

First you control your practice.
Next it remembers how you practice .
It automates what bureaucrats need you to do.
Makes your life easier in a world of bureaucratic zombies.
All this requires you to work and think and create you own solution.
It has all the usual IT problems that every body else has so not that different.
Speed is Key so do not skimp on hardware.
You need to understand the logic of the concept before you start.

I have used this since its conception 1.0. If did not work then the processor was too slow. Then 2.19 came , it worked still slow but the net working hardware failed, the 3.x, 4.x came along and I have been using it since 2004. The 4.x worked well till MU stage one, it slowed down.
This program is not a fly by night, it is in for the long haul.

Pros: Praxis allows me to develop and modify my approach to patients. This way, my notes continue to improve with time and usage. Also, the vendor has always been very responsive to my needs.

Cons: The only problem is trying to teach other people to use Praxis. I find that the younger generation adapts much quicker. Unfortunately, older physicians are more set in their ways and want the software to help them do things their way.

Pros: Praxis is a system that allows me to practice medicine and chart fast. I looked at everybody as far as EHR vendors, and I mean everybody. I chose the best system for my clinic's needs based on Praxis' ability to chart and finish complex notes quickly and to grow with me as my needs change. It is a system that learns from me as I am practicing, instead of making me try to learn from it. Praxis has been absolutely great overall and has been the best decision I¿ve made for the clinic. My favorite part of using Praxis is it¿ 100% customizability. It's easy to use when I'm in front of patients, and this makes my day much easier.

Cons: There's not a lot to take away from Praxis. No system is perfect, but the more I use Praxis, the better it works for me, and the more it helps my clinic.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be careful of all-in-one vendors that say 'yes' to everything. As I looked at the various companies (I personally looked at five billing/EHR companies), I found a few things in common. They all say they have everything. Also, they all have the same features really. Their EHRs are all similar with structured templates and drop-down menus and lists. I had seen similar EHRs through the hospital systems and have found them quite difficult to use. I recommend you choose the best EHR for your needs when seeing patients and that you see yourself using every day.

Pros: Praxis allows physicians to teach the software how they want to chart. The more you use the software, the more the software learns.

Cons: I have no significant complaints and know many others who have the same opinion.

Comments: Excellent product.

Praxis allows me too;
1. document exactly like I want to (i.e. I don't fit my thoughts into the templated words of the EMR but the EMR documents my thoughts, my words...exactly without compromise).

2. quick, (i.e.. Praxis can be taught in one key stroke to document a "steroid injection into the left knee using a medial approach" as opposed to the right knee using a lateral approach.

3. efficient, (i.e. Praxis "learns", and once learned, Praxis remembers forever. In the above steroid injection you will never again have to dictate or type the document again and it will also be easy to teach Praxis a right knee procedure with only a few word changes.

4. practical. Praxis will pay for it self within a few months based on paying for dictation

5. liability protection. The hospital that I admit my patients too has an EMR that all doctors are to use. My problem not only is the above (the time and keys that I must use to document a knee steroid injection for example is unbelievable, without a way of teaching it my words for the procedure, infact the words that I must use are the same that all the other doctors use. How silly will I look to a jury when the documentation not only are not my words but the exact same words as someone else

6. Medicare qualified. Praxis (as does other EMR's) assists in meeting the new requirements, but unlike other EMR's offers meeting those requirements simple

7. Physician centered. Unlike other EMR's, Praxis looks at documentation the same way that we think clinically then allows us to document it the way the Insurance wants it done (opposed to the other way around)

8. uncompromised. Praxis allow uncompromised documentation in my words with full support and help at any time

Pros: I can't say enough about the professional satisfaction of charting the way you want to chart, especially after all of the dropdowns in our last system. Praxis is so much faster, and I am finishing my charts in the exam room for the first time in my career. Templates could work for someone who sees a small number of diagnoses, but our practice is not that way, as we have a large number of customized tests and treatment plans. Praxis learned all of these and more; I have even found ways of documenting things I would never document before, and they are sent automatically as alerts to my staff when they need to follow up. Praxis is hard to describe because so many other EHRs all look the same, so make sure you see it live or in person, if possible.

Cons: Just make sure that you are working with a solid billing company, labs, etc. Our billing was outdated and made it harder to link.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be seduced by the bigger EMRs. We made that mistake and spent a rough year trying to make it work. Pick something that actually makes your practice run faster.

Pros: This software has just made our office happier. It helps us communicate with one another, reminds us to ask all the right questions, and helps us to never forget what we have to follow up on with a patient. Patients really appreciate that, and it has saved us so much time. That would be what I like best: not having to stay late at the office with paperwork.

Cons: Not related to Praxis, but Meaningful use can be a pain; just make sure to work with your trainer because it can be set it up so that it is easy and automatic. We wasted some time trying to figure it out on our own.

Recommendations to other buyers: The demo was very helpful, but if you can talk to a clinic who has Praxis, they will explain exactly how helpful it can be for your specialty. It made a big difference to see how another clinic had built a whole set of their own assessments and treatment plans and made it more real.

Pros: The software becomes easier with use, especially now with the ability to look at and use ideas and work from other Praxis users. This is probably their most inventive addition. The tech and teaching support are most effective. They seem to have the best in the business. My partner and I are now learning Version 6 on the internet with an instructor. This same instructor trained me about five years ago, and I am so glad she is still around, like an old friend.

Cons: In the beginning (about the mid-1990s), it was primitive and singular to a computer. How things have changed.

Pros: After evaluating several vendors, Praxis' EMR non-template based product was a logical selection. With this product, I'm able to customize the program for my needs. Many of the other vendors only offer template-based solutions and charge a fee when customization is needed.

Cons: There is nothing to date that has made the experience with Praxis EMR unsatisfying.

Recommendations to other buyers: When evaluating other software, several features of Praxis EMR make them standout. The template-free platform, chart dictation, and scanning capabilities all within one program are just the start of the features that make it an ease to work with. The ability to use the interface with your practice management system for higher reimbursements and the synching with laboratories continue to build efficiencies within the practice. After consulting with other physicians and our IT company, Praxis EMR was mentioned time and time again as the best software in the industry.

Pros: Your mind does not think in a template system. Before templates, before words, your mind has a concept. This concept is related to the diagnosis and then expressed in words. The heart of Praxis is a concept processor and this links your mind to Praxis. Physicians are all not trained the same way; therefore, they can have different concepts of the same diagnosis. In Praxis, this concept continues to evolve as medicine changes.

Cons: All EMRs have to conform to all the continuous and sometimes ridiculous changes made by government regulations. The founder and CEO of Praxis is an MD, Dr. Richard Low. The evolution is MD-directed, with physicians as beta testers in their clinics and not designed by a computer nerd. These government regulations have hindered the physician evolution of Praxis serving the government bureaucracy rather than the physician.

Recommendations to other buyers: To find the ideal EMR is like looking for the Holy Grail; you will never find it! There is no perfect EMR. They all have some problems, and I have looked at many. The Praxis system has paid for itself when compared to paying for transcription and nurse charting labor in less that a year (at 2001 price when I bought it).

Pros: Praxis allows each provider to use their own medical practice style in patient documentation and treatment protocols. Their support and training services are outstanding!

Cons: Nothing to complain about. We are very satisfied with Praxis.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend watching their demo and/or an onsite visit to see Praxis in real use.

Pros: EMRs are brainless, but this one can think like you; it will remember what was done last time, so every day is not a new day.

Cons: Speed. Make sure you have the latest SSD, the fastest processor, the fastest network, etc.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not be a zombie. Medicine needs critical thinking; make sure your EMR allows you to do that and still cover you from the auditors.

Pros: I bought Praxis back in 1998, mainly after looking at the way that other EMRs claimed to document and comparing them to the way that Praxis actually documents. It was a no-brainer.

Cons: There's very little that I like least.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think it boils down to this; 1. Does the software document what you want or does it require you to choose someone's else's Word template? The hospital I admit to is currently looking for doctors to help make documentation templates; every progress note for "acute exacerbation of chronic Heart Failure" is going to be identical! 2. How easy is it to learn the system? 3. Is the EMR static or constantly changing with medicine's documentation needs? (Last year, hypoxia was an HCC value, whereas this year, it's not) 4. Cost 5. Support 6. Ease of use (i.e., how many "keys will be required" to document a steroid injection to the knee?), or can you simply teach the EMR so that essentially one key stroke is all that is needed. 7. Will it be around next year?

Comments: I have been using Praxis for a over 2 years now and I can say that Praxis has made an outstanding contribution to my practice. I am nearly paperless, and I get labs right into Praxis from both Labcorp and Quest, and they are looking into getting the few labs I send top the hospital connected as well. I would say that my Praxis trainer (Karri) has been no less that exceptional, and they are always there to answer my questions and such. Support has been excellent and they answer within seconds. As far as time, I now get home by 6:30 or earlier and I was suffering until about 8-9pm with my old EHR system. I would recommend Praxis to anyone who is looking for high quality and fast charting. I had my trainer onsite which was wonderful. Good luck!

Pros: Customer service is the best! They are courteous and quick to respond to any questions. Their training is superior to any other. I always have all questions answered right away. The other upside is that everyone is so friendly that I feel like I'm talking to family.

Cons: I really don't have any complaints about this product.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would highly recommend this product. I have used many such products, and this product outweighs others in quality, price, and customer service.

Pros: Charting is fast, and Praxis has an amazing way of dealing with chronic conditions. As a neurology and sleep clinic, we deal with really complex cases that require long-term chronic treatment. Praxis charts the proper diagnoses as well as all of the appropriate recommendations and guidelines. It populates the majority of the fields based on previous cases, so you don¿t have to fill out information over and over again.

Cons: I really like Praxis, so I can¿t complain. Using Praxis does require a different mindset from other EHRs I have seen. Training isn¿t about learning how to use the software but about how to put your knowledge/way of doing things into Praxis. Once you understand that you build Praxis, it¿s easy.

Recommendations to other buyers: The more you use Praxis, the better it gets. I¿d recommend to keep working with a trainer. We have worked hard to create detailed treatment paradigms and recommendations paradigms for all of the cases we see. This information comes up whenever we see a related case, which saves hours.

Pros: It's very easy to adapt our paper forms into an electronic format. The trainers were accessible. I loved the use of Teamviewer!

Cons: I can't think of anything offhand. Any software comes with challenges, and the biggest challenge has been the provider deciding how they want the template to look.

Recommendations to other buyers: Users come in all levels of ability, and there will always be challenges. Make sure to take your time training and adapting to any new system.

Pros: I am an independent trainer for Praxis, and I work with providers across all specialties. Praxis allows them to chart in their own words and in their own way unlike any other program available. Praxis can be accessed through iPads, laptops, desktops, virtually any platform available. I have also seen Praxis accommodate their users' suggestions unlike any other software program I have ever worked with.

Cons: I can't think of any negatives about Praxis. Praxis is so versatile that it meets the needs of many different providers across all specialties.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look at all the EMR programs available before you make your choice. Do they allow you to chart in your own words? Are they highly recommended by their users? Would you rather use a template-based application that limits your ability, or do you want to practice medicine in your own way? These are areas where Praxis excels and others fall short.

Pros: I am the office manager of a neurology practice that is using Praxis, and we really love it! I would say one of the things we like best is the automation. We currently have four providers that are part-time but have very full patient loads, and if it weren¿t for Praxis, I don¿t know how we¿d get everything done. We have used Praxis since 2008, and now it understands exactly how our clinic works. It gets faster as you use it so we have seen more patients every year since we purchased it.

Cons: I can¿t think of any real negatives; Praxis has really saved our practice. We did have trouble with our old billing system, but Praxis works with any billing, so they helped us choose another, and the office has been running great since then. I like that Praxis works with our billing behind the scenes.

Recommendations to other buyers: I remember when we were looking for an EHR, I didn¿t understand what was different about Praxis at first. But when you have seen the EHRs used by our hospital and all of the systems that spit out huge long template patient notes, you will see that Praxis is really great. It is truly impressive. Look at some of the other systems out, and when starting, make sure to have time for training. You need training because Praxis learns the way you do things, and you need to spend time to teach it; training is included and it¿s so worth it.

Pros: I have been a user of Praxis for 15 years. The support has always been very prompt and reliable. The program is very flexible and the developers have been very responsive to the users' ideas and suggestions.

Cons: Not sure how to answer this; the price is good, and the product is excellent.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take your time in evaluating the programs. Make sure it will fit your practice and that you can modify it to work as you need it to work rather than how the manufacturers think it should work.

I have used this product for at least 20 years.

Pros: The program was devised by a practicing physician. Praxis is not template-driven. You create the record that you want. It is adaptable to any practice. I have used it for general surgery, medical oncology, primary care, and addiction medicine. It is very affordable. Support is responsive and knowledgeable. The vendor offers the option of being cloud-based.

Cons: I wish I had bought it earlier! I use a program that utilizes a Microsoft Database. Oracle and Microsoft don't coexist well on the same server.

Recommendations to other buyers: It was very important to me that the clinical note reflected my particular way of practicing. "Creating" your own record is easier than trying to learn someone else's. It is important that the record says what you want it to say.
