Modernizing Medicine’s Healthcare IT Suite product overview
Modernizing Medicine offers a data-driven, specialty-specific EHR system, EMA, and healthcare IT suite including Practice Management, Business Operations Services, Analytics, Image Management, ASC electronic reports (for ophthalmology), modmed Kiosk, patient portal, patient reminders, and patient surveys, plus eVisits and Pathology (for dermatology practices).
The suite of solutions is available for dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, urology, plastic surgery and pain medicine practices. The native iPad application enhances this cloud-based EHR system that includes built-in specialty-specific knowledge, an ICD-10 solution and a MIPS intelligence platform. Built by practicing physicians, EMA collects structured data and is prepared for value-based care under MACRA.
The system’s adaptive learning engine can remember a provider’s specific preferences and physicians can select commonly used diagnoses, prescriptions and consent forms. Utilizing the Interactive Anatomical Atlas and Virtual Exam Room, physicians can conduct an exam and enter data while facing their patients. The suite is designed to deliver time savings as well as automate billing and coding. The cloud-based program also has no templates or macro restrictions. The company offers a synchronous audio and video telehealth solution, modmed Telehealth, as well.
Pros of Modernizing Medicine’s Healthcare IT Suite
Modernizing Medicine knows that one size does not fit all when it comes to the field of medicine and technology. The EHR, EMA, was built by on-staff physicians who know the workflow for specific specialties. They work side by side with the development team to continually improve and cater the EHR system based on provider needs and industry changes. EMA also comes preloaded with specialty medical content right out of the box and is ready to use day one.
Cons of Modernizing Medicine’s Healthcare IT Suite
The suite is entirely cloud-based, requiring a strong internet connection to use (and is not accessible during outages). Some users have also noted the software isn’t designed with admin staff in mind, which can be a problem in larger offices with robust support, non-clincal staff.
Breakdown of core features
EMA is cloud-based, providing physicians with the freedom to practice (almost) wherever and whenever, and that they can access patient data virtually anywhere as well. With PocketEMA, the EHR app for the smartphone, providers can instantly access patients’ medical records and can use the Apple Watch to view chart notes, note statuses, messages and schedules at a glance.
The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model eliminates the need to buy or maintain onsite server hardware. It helps to eliminate the disruptive and manual EHR software updates that come with on-site servers and provides practices with scalability.
Adaptive Learning Engine
EMA EHR can remember your preferences on everything from laser settings to desired anesthesia for a biopsy, eliminating the need for templates. Based on providers’ unique username in the system, EMA can recognize preferred methods suggesting top diagnoses and treatments all in the interest of saving time. It functions as a true medical assistant helping providers to work more efficiently.
Protocols enable providers to create master visits for conditions frequently encountered to help save time. This means providers can record patient, procedure, diagnosis and treatment information once, then apply it to exams like routine visits, new patients, and pre- and post-operative instructions.
