Here's What Your Peers Are Saying

William Fangman, MD

William Fangman, MD, Piedmont Plastic Surgery and Dermatology

“You can tell that clinical physicians were involved in the development of EMA, and that makes it functional in an actual office. EMA follows the flow of a real clinic, not a textbook clinic.”

Gary B. Slaughter Jr., MD

Gary B. Slaughter Jr., MD, Charlotte Dermatology

“The fact that I’m proud to be a dermatologist is one of the reasons why I wanted a dermatology-specific EHR system. I naturally gravitated toward EMA because it fits my practice style and has the ideology that I do. The system anticipates my next move yet gives me the ability to customize my documentation.”

Mark Gaughan, MD

Mark Gaughan, MD, Durango Dermatology

“For any dermatologists who haven’t already committed to a dermatology EHR system—or even those, like us, who already had—I think it’s important to take a look at EMA. It’s so different from anything else that’s out there. I really do think it’s going to modernize medicine.”

EMA Doesn’t Just Participate. It Anticipates.

Does your current dermatology electronic medical records software remember your laser settings or desired anesthesia for biopsies? Does it understand your practice patterns so well that it can think intuitively like you, eliminating the need for templates? Like a well-trained member of your team, our EMA dermatology software does exactly that, thanks to the innovative adaptive learning engine inside. Based on your unique EMA username, it can recognize your preferred methods and even suggest your top diagnoses and treatments. How’s that for saving time?

Not All Data Is Created Equal

Greater Diagnostic and Treatment Power for Better Patient Outcomes

Actionable data can truly modernize medicine. While other dermatology EMR systems collect unstructured free text that they cannot easily interpret or leverage, EMA gathers structured data as you tap your way through exams. This enables you to run powerful analytics and studies for value-based medicine in the form of MACRA and MIPS. Under these regulations, the sustainability of your practice relies on how you compare to your peers. The structured data technology in our 2015 Edition ONC HIT Certified EHR makes it easy to understand where your dermatology practice falls along the payment curve in real time, as well as how to improve your current standing.

  • Track and benchmark your performance on a daily basis to assist MIPS compliance
  • Make time-consuming tasks easier, such as ICD-10 medical coding and CMS reporting

EMA even makes attesting for Meaningful Use dermatology and MIPS simple by automatically identifying and compiling your reportable data. When it’s time to report, EMA can submit it all for you with the touch of a button. See what the best dermatology EMR looks like with a quick demo.

Innovation That Moves You…Literally

EMA is cloud-based, giving you the freedom to practice dermatology virtually wherever and whenever you want. Do you need to take a three-day seminar during the week while staying available to your patients? No problem. The cloud means your patient data goes where you go.

You can instantly access your dermatology electronic medical records with PocketEMA™, the EMA dermatology app for your smartphone. Plus, when you’re rushing around the office, use our Apple Watch app to view chart notes, note statuses, messages and your schedule at a glance.

What’s more, our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model eliminates the need to buy or maintain onsite server hardware. And the best part? You won’t have to struggle with disruptive manual EHR software updates to your onsite servers again.

“I have three office locations, so being cloud-based provides the ease of portability. If my physician assistant is seeing a patient in another office and has a question, I can look up the patient information and provide an answer no matter which office I’m in.”

– Tina Venetos, MD, Northshore Dermatology Center

You can easily tap to show patients key information and progress over time, and EMA generates the note and bill automatically by working with our dermatology practice management system.

Want to save even more time? EMA’s Protocols feature makes the best dermatology EMR even better by letting you create master visits for conditions you encounter frequently as a dermatologist. This means you can record patient, procedure, diagnosis and treatment information once, then effortlessly apply it to exams like routine visits, new patients and pre- and post-operative instructions.

Code With Confidence

While other dermatology software systems tout their ability to translate or narrow the number of dermatology ICD-10 codes you have to select from, EMA goes one step further. It automatically suggests your ICD-10, CPT and modifier codes based on your actual notes and populates them onto the bill for your review. No guesswork. No translation tools. Just tap, touch and you’re done. It’s that simple.
