The EMR war is still going on ..

November 2nd, 2009

 The EMR war is going on and will intensify in the coming years. Vendors are becoming more and more aggressive and innovative to gain and keep their market share in the rapidly growing EHR market. This competition will ultimately benefit EMR users with better products in the long run. But in the short term it will eventually make the buying decisions harder.

Among recent products updates is one from Praxis.
Praxis just announced a new EMR system that learns from the physician using it.
According to the company EMR templates reduce Physicians freedom of expression, as they are nothing more than a boilerplate developed by a third party or expert for inputting clinical data. The inflexibility of templates causes a series of problems during everyday use.
Praxis upcoming version 5 is using Neural Networks to overcome this inflexibility by letting the software adopt to Physician instead of expecting the other way around. 
Being fanatic about Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) I would like to see them succeed!
