Weil Foot & Ankle Institute Selects Modernizing Medicine®’s Suite of Podiatry Software Solutions
Learn why Weil Foot & Ankle Institute chose an all-in-one podiatry software
“The investment Modernizing Medicine has made into creating a podiatry-specific platform to help podiatrists be more efficient and provide better patient care gave us the confidence that we were choosing the right solution to best support our overall goals.”
– LOWELL WEIL, JR, DPM
Weil Foot & Ankle Institute has announced they have chosen Modernizing MedicineⓇ’s integrated suite of solutions, known as modmed® Podiatry, for their growing practice. The all-in-one software includes the podiatry-specific EHR, EMA®, Practice Management and Analytics platforms, and Patient Engagement tools.
Weil Foot & Ankle Institute is a growing, 50+ provider, multi-state podiatry practice headquartered in Mount Prospect, IL and has provided foot and ankle treatment options for over 55 years. Their team is committed to using cutting-edge technology and resources to support their provision of care to their patients.
Chief Executive Officer and Podiatrist Dr. Lowell Weil, Jr. shared, “Our organization is poised for continued growth, but we didn’t have the technology to match our vision. We needed to align with a company whose vision and solutions would enhance our surgical clinic’s innovative excellence as we move forward in delivering healthcare into this century. It was also important that we implement an all-in-one integrated solution versus a disjointed one that would require us to add on various pieces in the future. For those reasons we chose Modernizing Medicine.”
EMA was designed by practicing physicians and built around real podiatric workflows. Its adaptive learning engine recognizes a provider’s preferred methods, and suggests top diagnoses and treatment plans based on the provider’s own documentation. “During the evaluation period, I was able to navigate through EMA in a test environment and within one hour, it learned my preferences. In podiatry, there are so many nuances to billing and coding compared to other specialties. EMA’s automated suggested coding will help streamline my coding process, even in the most difficult scenarios,” said Dr. Weil.
“Additionally, Modernizing Medicine’s commitment to Patient Engagement is so critical. Saving time and seeing patients faster is important, but can’t be the only focus. We need patients to feel good about their experience with us and Modernizing Medicine’s Patient Engagement tools will aid in our commitment to a positive patient experience.”
Dr. Weil stated, ”With this technology, I can confidently tell a physician new to our group that we’re going to help them save time and enhance their ability to focus on treating their patients. Modernizing Medicine remains focused on the future and their specialty software is continuously evolving. We look forward to working and collaborating with them for many years to come.”
