BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specialty-specific health information technology leader Modernizing Medicine® today announced that Nicole R. Fram, M.D. of Advanced Vision Care will present on Sunday, April 15, during the EMR Industry Spotlight Theater at the 2018 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting. Dr. Fram will educate attendees about her successes utilizing the modmed Ophthalmology suite and its intelligent electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA™, including best practices providers can employ using technology to make better clinical decisions, improve patient compliance and deliver higher quality of care.
Dr. Nicole Fram is an ophthalmologist with a sub-specialty in corneal and external disease. Her research led Advanced Vision Care in Los Angeles, Calif., to select modmed Ophthalmology and EMA as their ophthalmology software: “I am a better physician because of EMA due to the detailed and automatic documentation the solution generates,” said Dr. Fram. “My notes are legible, intelligent, customizable and easy to read. EMA’s built-in MIPS automation enables us to track our estimated scores along the way so I feel zero anxiety about MIPS. I am relieved that Modernizing Medicine designed a system that can keep up with these changes so we don’t have to worry.”
In her presentation during the session entitled “Tomorrow’s EHR Whither Thou Goest,” Dr. Fram will discuss how Modernizing Medicine’s ophthalmology software helps providers make better clinical decisions and improve patient compliance, how it increases patient face to face time and how the company works to improve quality of care physicians provide to patients.
In addition, Modernizing Medicine will demonstrate its ophthalmology software, including:
- EMA – a cloud-based ophthalmology EHR system developed by practicing ophthalmologists and ranked as the #1 ophthalmology EMR by Black Book in 2018. The native iPad application includes built-in wisdom for ophthalmic subspecialties, including retina, ocular plastic surgery, cataracts and refractive surgery, cornea, glaucoma and more. EMA knows the ophthalmologist’s workflow, helps them move through exams, automates outputs and can save time with predictive algorithms.
- Built in MIPS composite score reporting and data submission*.
- Image Management – centralized access to patient records and diagnostic images.
- modmed Kiosk™ – a native iPad application designed to enable patients to perform self-service tasks at the doctor’s office.
- Practice Management – an ophthalmology practice management system that functions in conjunction with EMA.
- Analytics – a platform that allows practices to turn data into insights, from enterprise to a patient level, to improve clinical, financial and operational performance.
As part of its commitment to continuous product improvement, Modernizing Medicine recently conducted an analysis of nearly 2,000 specialty physicians to identify the top factors that influence their decisions when purchasing EHR systems. Out of the 350 ophthalmologists, optometrists, ophthalmology practice administrators, MA/PA/RNs and executives who participated, 86 percent agree that ease-of-use is the most important feature when choosing an EHR, with specialty-specific (55 percent) and compliance support (47 percent) as top considerations as well.
“Research indicates that today’s ophthalmologists need a system that is easy to use, understands their unique needs and helps physicians adapt to value-based care,” said Dr. Michael Rivers, Director, EMA Ophthalmology. “That’s why we consistently listen to the needs of our users and leverage that feedback to enhance our ophthalmology software. There’s nothing else like it on the market. It is truly built by ophthalmologists for ophthalmologists.”
Dr. Fram will present on Sunday, April 15 between 12:15-1:15 pm on the exhibit level, exhibit hall in the Industry Spotlight Theater at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. For more information about this year’s conference, please visit annualmeeting.ascrs.org.
