Praxify mobility app for EHRs unveils new usability for physicians at HIMSS17
Praxify, a healthcare information technology company to ease physicians’ lives, officially launched at HIMSS17 following successful implementations of some of its technologies. The company unveiled MIRA, a mobile app designed to improve EHR usability and performance, and SIYA, a care management workflow system for payers, providers and patients.
The company recently implemented Praxify’s technology to streamline clinical workflows and provide its physicians with clinical insights at the point of care at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami.
“It is no secret that physicians today have point-and-click fatigue when it comes to the EHR, leading to higher rates of physician burnout, lower physician productivity, and, most important, lower patient satisfaction,” said Ram Sahasranam, president and co-founder of Praxify. “Our company has developed technologies that help EHRs work the way they should: to enhance the patient-provider encounter, streamline workflows and enable physicians to consume clinical insights.”
Praxify’s core application, MIRA, adds a mobile-based augmentation layer to an organization’s existing EHR and helps physicians complete documentation with a voice-activated digital assistant and context-aware, adaptable templates. As an Apple mobility partner, Praxify has worked closely with Apple to optimize product design for a physician’s mobile workflow, the company said.
“Providers are often frustrated with going through all of the screens and filling out all the forms required in the EHR; as we seek to gather and utilize population health data, we want to be sure not to exacerbate clinicians’ stress,” said Jacques Orces, MD, chief medical information officer at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. “MIRA makes the EHR easier to use while also bringing in additional data points from its own analytic engine.”
