"I could not be more satisfied with Praxis EMR. There are innumerable ways large and small that Praxis has made practicing medicine easier, more efficient and many a time pleasurable for both my staff and myself. Like many physicians I was becoming increasingly disenchanted with the practice of medicine, but with Praxis easing my stress and frustrations, I again look forward to going into the office every day."
I can now quickly fine tune the history taken by my medical assistants, rather than spending an inordinate amount of time asking all the history questions myself. No lost or missing charts. No delayed review of lab results or prescription refill requests as it is all automated and available to me as soon as they arrive in the office. With Praxis, I can rapidly and comprehensively document a patient who complains of actinic keratoses, seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea and needs 2 biopsies to rule out skin cancer within a few minutes. The documentation will include diagrams of the actinic keratoses treatment sites and biopsy sites, the location of previous biopsy sites, a form/label will print out to slap on the biopsy bottle, prescriptions will print out and the documentation to justify the level of coding will be automatically present. I used to routinely undercode because even though I provided the service, the documentation to justify it became too onerous to routinely include in the note. With Praxis, documentation is no longer an arduous job, but a task I thoroughly enjoy doing.
Training new medical assistants has now been made much easier by Praxis as procedure set up instructions automatically appear before them when they bring the patient into the exam room. It doesn’t stop there - we recently invited a new physician to join our practice. The Knowledge Exchanger will allow him to much more rapidly document his patient visits accurately and blend in to our practice style.
I'm sure you've heard how Praxis’ built-in memo system, “Agents,” is far more than just a memo system and greatly improves communication and efficiency in the office. One of its abilities that I find very helpful is that a reminder message will automatically pop up at predetermined times. For instance if I open a patient's chart to enter a pathology report, when I read the biopsy slide a window will pop up reminding me to call the patient with the results since for whatever reason this particular patient isn't returning for a follow-up visit. I can also have a window pop up when I open the chart for a patient visit reminding me to check a spot I noted on the last visit to see if it should be biopsied, or that the patient’s spouse died the previous month or any other reminder I want to see, but don't necessarily want to document in the chart.
No question that my reimbursements have increased as I now properly code for visits instead of routinely undercoding. I can easily do this because of the automatic documentation from Praxis that requires no extra time or effort from me. Using Praxis is not only more cost-effective for me, but also easy to use.
