Praxis is a popular Electronic Health Record (EHR) choice for many practices, but it still does not compare to the Amazing Charts EHR when you stack them up side-by-side.
This survey, published in Family Practice Management (FPM), asks 2719 AAFP academy members how much they agree with a number of statements (17 in all), including the ones below. Physicians were asked to indicate their level of agreement or disagreement using the scale Strongly Agree, Agree, Neutral, Disagree, Strongly Disagree. Data from this study are summarized below with EHRs ranked in order of respondents' satisfaction.
Percentage(1) of respondents who agree or strongly agree with the following statement:
"I am highly satisfied with this EHR."
"Overall this EHR is easy and intuitive to use."
"Documenting care is easy and effective with this EHR."
"Finding and reviewing information is easy with this EHR."
"E-messaging and tasking within the office is easy with this EHR."
"If I were in the market to buy a new EHR now, this is the EHR I would buy."
