Praxis EMR Selects MedUnity as Its Exclusive HIE and Fax Services Provider
EAST SANDWICH, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MedUnity, innovator of the first public Nationwide Health Information Exchange (HIE) and fax service for the secure delivery of Electronic Healthcare Record information, announced today its selection by Praxis Electronic Medical Records to be their exclusive provider of HIE and fax services for the forthcoming Praxis 5.
Richard Low, MD, Praxis CEO and founder announced, "It is clear that while the efficient creation and management of electronic medical records is a critical component to improving healthcare outcomes, it is also imperative that physicians are able to share these records instantly and securely with any and all members of the medical community. Up until now physicians were limited to sharing their medical records via fax or within closed-loop communities of users on similar systems.
"After reviewing all the information exchange solutions out there, we found that MedUnity had by far the most flexible interface engine and approach, allowing a text-free-based system like Praxis to easily interface with template-based EMRs or any other system whatever it may be. Because this is a service this is nothing our customers have to build or install other than Praxis EMR. MedUnity is the only HIE service we found that also features fax services assuring information delivery to off-network practices. It is very exciting that all Praxis customers will be able to exchange their EMR/EHR information with any member of the US medical community regardless of what system they may or may not have. We were further convinced that MedUnity is the right choice as they will be working with the state HIN's ensuring our customers are able to transparently participate in the state initiatives as well."
“We are very excited about being selected by Praxis EMR,” said Christopher Bushing, MedUnity’s CEO. “Praxis’ leadership position within the EMR/EHR industry, as demonstrated by their first-place ranking in the 2009 American Academy of Family Physicians' (AAFP) Family Practice Management EHR User Satisfaction Survey, will be enhanced by their decision to align themselves with our innovative HIE and fax solution. By incorporating MedUnity’s web-services API into Praxis EMR, thousands of Praxis customers will soon be able to send and receive electronic medical records securely. The MedUnity solution, because it includes fax, makes for an easy migration path from paper- and fax-based communications, the current gold standard, to secure electronic-based communications for the same cost as existing fax-based solutions. MedUnity offers little or no disruption to the existing practice workflow.”
