AAFP EHR User Satisfaction Survey ranks Praxis EMR top in essential categories

Praxis Electronic Medical Records received first place rankings in the American Academy of Family Physicians' (AAFP) Family Practice Management (FPM) 2009 EHR User Satisfaction Survey for improving medical quality, health maintenance, and disease management, all critical for new ARRA Stimulus legislation. Praxis also ranked #1 among doctors indicating their EMR had a positive effect in determining their salary. Finally, Praxis also ranked number one in the country in providing excellent training and support. In the previous 2007/2008 AAFP EHR User Satisfaction Survey, Praxis EMR had also received top scores, winning #1 in overall user satisfaction, service and support, ease of use, and flexibility.

The AAFP EHR survey is conducted every two years and was expanded this year to include the top 22 vendors of EMRs (also known as Electronic Healthcare Records or EHRs). This year, 2,012 physicians participated in the study of 142 different EMRs. With 94,600 members, the AAFP survey is among the largest of its kind in the country.

Praxis EMR is the first Electronic Medical Record not based on structured templates. Instead, Praxis uses artificial intelligence that learns the way each physician practices medicine to progressively improve medical quality. "This is wonderful news," says Richard Low, MD CEO of Praxis EMR. "We are extremely honored that Praxis won in essential categories such as Medical Quality, Health Maintenance, and Disease Management. These are vital areas for improving quality via EMRs. We are equally pleased to have won first place in determining doctors salaries. Our clients often remind us that their improved medical practice has translated to higher income. Praxis is an intelligent EMR that mirrors the mind of each provider and keeps learning dynamically for a lifetime, saving doctors time and money."
