BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Modernizing Medicine’s Chief Medical and Strategy Officer and Co-founder, Dr. Michael Sherling, will lead a session titled, “Best Practices for Ensuring EHR Success” at this year’s Association of Dermatology Administrators & Managers (ADAM) Annual Meeting. Dr. Sherling will inform attendees about changes to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) in 2018, strategies to reduce documentation burdens and physician burnout and more on Tuesday, February 13, 4-5 p.m. PST.
In addition, specialty-specific health information technology leader Modernizing Medicine, Inc. will showcase its electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA™, and comprehensive suite modmed® Dermatology at ADAM and the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) annual meetings in San Diego, Calif.
“While the 2018 changes to MIPS, particularly concerning the new Cost category, may have significant implications for dermatologists, there can be more opportunity to run a successful practice if we participate,” shares Dr Sherling. “Connecting with dermatology professionals at ADAM and AAD and sharing how the right technology can support them without slowing down their workflow is critical, especially in the age of value-based care.”
Developed by practicing dermatologists, Modernizing Medicine’s suite of specialty specific solutions, modmed Dermatology, includes intuitive solutions such as the award-winning dermatology EHR system EMA, Analytics, Practice Management, Pathology and more to help save providers time and run efficient practices. Unique product features include:
- Analytics: EMA includes administrative analytics designed to reveal answers such as finding specific patients to follow-up with, seeing how referring providers affect your bottom line and analyzing visit volume trends, plus CPT and ICD-10 code distribution; provider analytics to identify patients lost to follow-up for high-risk diagnoses and analyze E&M distribution and outbound referral patterns; and if used with Practice Management, financial analytics to spot reimbursement trends and more.
- MIPS Intelligence Platform: EMA supports clients’ compliance mandates under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program*. Similar to the technology that led PQRS success rates, the solution helps track your estimated Composite Score and has robust analytics and benchmarking reports.
- modmed® Kiosk: An award-winning native iPad application designed for patients to perform self-service tasks such as completing patient intake forms at the doctor’s office. It is designed to empower providers to engage patients and directly involve them in their own care, reduce potential errors during documentation while populating patient’s electronic health record.
“With EMA and the Practice Management solution, our staff can complete charts on time, thoroughly keep track of patient’s progress, and view cash flow and data reports in one interface,” said Cynthia Holsworth, practice administrator at Peachtree Dermatology Associates in Atlanta, Ga. “Throughout our journey with Modernizing Medicine they have listened to us and used our feedback to improve their products. I'm always excited to see what enhancements will be added next and I know we'll continue to see improvements that will make modmed Dermatology even better than it already is today. We credit Modernizing Medicine for giving us the tools we need to be successful.”
