So just what is Black Book™ Research and their rankings? And what do they mean? If you haven’t heard the news, Modernizing Medicine received not just one but four #1 spots. Our specialty-specific electronic health record (EHR) systems for dermatology, otolaryngology, plastic surgery and gastroenterology earned the #1 spots on the Black Book Research Top EHR lists in those spaces. For us as a company, it’s like receiving an Olympic Gold medal as a team. This is the third year in a row we have ranked #1 in the dermatology category, the second year we have ranked #1 in the otolaryngology market and the first year the company has ranked #1 in the plastic surgery space. And drumroll please, gGastro, the EHR system built by gMed, a Modernizing Medicine company, received Black Book Rankings’ award for Top Ambulatory EHR for gastroenterology for the sixth year in a row.
With that being said, we thought it would helpful to share just what Black Book Rankings are and how they are calculated to truly understand the value and importance of them in the industry.
