Praxis users can now work “hands free”

Los Angeles, California. – August 19, 2002 – Infor*Med Medical Information Systems, the makers of the Praxis® EMR, announced today that it has entered a partnership agreement with Acoustic Magic to sell the patented Voice Tracker™ array microphone with its Praxis Medical Records Software.

The Voice Tracker™ is the first professional grade array microphone which has been certified by both ScanSoft for use with Dragon NaturallySpeaking™ and IBM for use with ViaVoice.

The Voice Tracker™ forms a listening beam (like a searchlight), which locates and electronically steers toward the talker. This spatial filtering reduces background noise, creating a very high signal-to-noise ratio, which results in low recognition errors, long range and fast response. Users no longer need to be tethered by a headset, or encumbered by a handheld microphone.

PRAXIS, from Infor*Med Corporation, is the number one selling Electronic Medical Program in the small and medium size practices, and the ONLY EMR using a CONCEPT PROCESSOR to speed up charting, while increasing the quality of the written output.

According to Richard Low, M.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Infor*Med, “it is critically important for a physician to work ‘hands-free’ in his environment, so that his main concern is only his patient. Voice Tracker™ enables medical practitioners to use voice recognition software, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking®, to enter information into Praxis. Voice Tracker™ is the first array microphone I have used that works effectively in a physician’s office.”
