WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Nov. 9 Infor-Med Corporation todayannounced the pre-release of Praxis Electronic Medical Records Version 4,featuring the new Praxis EMR Knowledge Exchanger. The dynamic tool allowsphysicians to tap into the knowledge of other clinicians enabling rapid start-ups for new users and enhanced charting capabilities for long-time Praxisusers. Industry experts site major advantages of neural-network thinking overtemplate-based systems.
"Doctors don't like being forced to enter data into rigid fieldsrepetitively and that's exactly what they are reduced to with templates," saidClayton Reynolds, MD, FACP, FACPE, a medical quality expert. "It's theinherent limitations of template technology and constraints of pick-lists thatturn physicians into mere technicians. Medicine is very much an art form andno two doctors practice the same way." Praxis Electronic Medical Records isbased on a unique neural-network technology called Concept Processing thatdocuments each case progressively faster and better by learning from theprovider's previous encounters.
"Praxis EMR has by far the best note generator on the market," said DanielGriffin, MD, winner of the 2006 HIMSS Davies award for EMR implementation."At issue, though, was the perceived time investment required to start using anEMR without pre-set templates. Now, a new Praxis user receives an immediateinfusion of medical knowledge enabling a rapid launch into electroniccharting. The medical knowledge acts like a window into another expert'smind. However, unlike a template, once the new knowledge is imported, itadapts 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 withspecialty-specific methodologies and texts to begin charting almostimmediately. It also enables seasoned users to benefit from the knowledge offellow practitioners, share their own clinical knowledge, and contribute tothe advancement of medicine.
"Template based EMR systems function within a static framework, "saidRichard M. Low, MD, CEO of Infor-Med Corporation. " Also, due to theirstructured nature, templates do not grow organically like Praxis knowledgebases do. We believe the knowledge exchanger will revolutionize medicine, onepractice at a time."
