Infor-Med Corporation announced today that Praxis: The Template-Free EMR v5 was certified as a complete EHR under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Meaningful Use Program. Medical practitioners nationwide who choose Praxis EMR to demonstrate Meaningful Use are eligible to receive incentive payments of up to $63,750 under Medicaid or up to $44,000 under Medicare.
"We are proud that we took the time to do it right," said Praxis CEO Richard Low, M.D. "As many of our competitors have demonstrated, certifying for Meaningful Use is not difficult. What is difficult is achieving certification without compromising product usability."
Unlike other EMRs, Praxis works with free text instead of rigid, pre-set templates. Data derived from templates is of questionable value because templates force doctors to sacrifice precision in favor of expediency. Praxis EMR v5 supports the government's efforts to improve public health by delivering superior data without burdening providers, accomplishing this by enabling users to embed discrete data directly into free text, coupled with the most powerful query engine in medicine. Add to that Praxis EMR v5's ability to generate excellent notes on the fly with a high degree of accuracy, and Praxis EMR v5 stands to become the preferred EMR of physicians and teachers of medicine who demand excellence and usability.
Infor-Med Corporation's Praxis EMR v5 is a complete EHR that is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by the Drummond Group, an ONC-ATCB, in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments. Praxis EMR v5 was certified on July 19, 2011; its certification ID is 07192011-4514-6. Clinical Quality Measures tested: NQF0001, NQF0002, NQF0013, NQF0024, NQF0028, NQF0031, NQF0034, NQF0038, NQF0041, NQF0043, NQF0055, NQF0421. No additional software used.
