"With the advent of pay for performance and evidence-based medicine, Praxis responded with the ability to prospectively study your practice and show proof that you achieve the highest standard of care."
Solo Practices are the foundation of the US healthcare system and are where most adults and families receive medical care throughout their lives. The solo provider can offer excellence in personalized, longitidunal care while fostering close connections with patients and families. Solo providers often accompany a patient and family over various years and receive high levels of patient satisfaction. The solo provider approach equates to high quality care, increased patient engagement and improved clinical outcomes.
With the increasing shortage of physicians and a growing population, providers in all specialties are being asked to work longer hours and see a greater number of patients. This has contributed to alarming levels of physician burnout while our healthcare system struggles to meet the growing demand for medical care.
Most EHR systems today are based on "templates" that offer a one-size fits all approach, forcing providers to use structured picklists to document patient encounters. Templates require significant amounts of data entry and physician users experience high degrees of dissatisfaction, often spending twice as much time with their EHR as they do with their patients. Most physicians today describe their EHRs as clunky, rigid and difficult to use and comment that they would not recommend the system to a colleague. Template EHR systems do not fit solo practices and are poorly designed to handle the documentation requirements facing solo and private practices today.
A top EHR for solo practices must help (not hinder) the overburdened provider by enabling them to engage in less screen time and more face-to-face contact with patients. The best EHR for solo and private practices must be intuitive, easy to use, fast and offer health maintenance, disease management and quality reporting to facilitate communication between providers and patients.
Praxis grows with your knowledge, and learns just as fast as you do! The Concept Processor is nothing short of amazing.
Praxis not only allows us to practice individually, but allows us to communicate with one other. We learn how each one of us manages patients and sees the system.
Praxis paid for itself in less than a year, and has now paid for itself over and over again!.... It makes my patient visits faster and helps reduce my liability.
With Praxis, I even have the freedom to create my own report model for Gastroenterology, using my own words, how I think, and how I practice medicine.
