BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specialty-specific health information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine, Inc., will showcase its intuitive plastic surgery suite of products and services, modmed® Plastic Surgery, including its award-winning electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA™, at Plastic Surgery The Meeting in Orlando, Fla., from October 7-9, 2017.
Named the #1 plastic & cosmetic surgery EHR system for two consecutive years by Black Book™, EMA was programmed by practicing plastic surgeons and includes built-in medical knowledge for the subspecialties of reconstruction, cosmetic and aesthetic medicine. The EHR system performs like a dedicated medical assistant, intended to help physicians move through exams faster and save time with features such as an adaptive learning engine, and it automates notes and bills with ease.
EMA includes features designed to help doctors score points in the Improvement Activities component of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), the value-based care initiative introduced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)*. One of the first EHR systems to include built in MIPS composite score reporting, EMA captures structured data at the point of care and offers the intuitive reporting, plus robust analytics and benchmarking reports. This is especially useful for physicians who perform reconstructive surgical procedures, as they can compare providers within a practice, and also view MIPS benchmarks to see how providers outside of the practice perform. Modernizing Medicine has a highly successful track record of value-based care reporting, as it announced earlier this year.
Fred G. Fedok, MD, FACS, of Fedok Facial Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, and one of the company’s valued customers explains, “EMA and Practice Management are the essential center of our practice. The iPad eliminates typing in front of the patient, and EMA automatically generates a well-organized, professional note. The scheduling and financial aspects are also easy for staff to navigate, and Modernizing Medicine continues to be exceedingly responsive to suggestions and queries.”
Along with EMA, the modmed Plastic Surgery suite offers Practice Management, Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), Analytics and the new patient kiosk. modmed® Kiosk is designed to help increase patient engagement by enabling patients to update their profile information, medical history and sign consent forms on an iPad.
“As a practicing physician, I have seen first-hand how valuable a data-driven system is in the era of value-based care. That’s why, when developing the system, we designed it to make it easy for plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons to track patient care and outcomes,” said Dr. Andrew Rosenthal, medical director of plastic surgery. “The services within modmed Plastic Surgery enable me and my peers to tackle MIPS compliance and improve relationships with patients.”
The full suite of products and services being showcased during the event include:
- EMA EHR
- Practice Management
- Analytics including clinical and financial modules
- Specialized Registries
- modmed Kiosk
- Pocket EMA™, the mobile version of EMA built for smartphones
- Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) functionality
Dr. Rosenthal and the Modernizing Medicine team look forward to providing demonstrations and talking with current clients at booth #408 during Plastic Surgery The Meeting from Saturday, October 7 through Monday, October 9 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
