Improve Outcomes

A data-driven EMR system to help you achieve better treatment outcomes and better business results for your practice

Power and knowledge at your fingertips

From linking historical treatment data with patient outcomes to increasing income through more accurate billing, EMA lets you improve patient care and the bottom line for your practice.

MACRA, MIPS and Dermatologists

How emphasis on quality over volume is changing the way you get paid.

When the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was signed into law in 2015, it immediately shifted the thought process behind Medicare payments. Soon, dermatologists will enjoy positive payment adjustments for providing higher quality care. Should they not meet those standards, however, practices could experience negative payment adjustments. And it can add up fast.

Learn more about MACRA and MIPS here.

MACRA combined three existing quality reporting programs, PQRS, MU and the Value-based Payment Modifier, and added a new program called Practice Improvement to create the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

When MACRA and MIPS roll out in 2017, data will be key. Having an EHR system like EMA to automate structured data and provide analytics will be crucial to how your practice fares.

Here are five ways EMA Dermatology addresses MACRA and MIPS to help you thrive in 2017 and beyond:

  1. Real Patient Engagement and Analytical Tools
  2. Automated Quality Data
  3. Population Health Registries
  4. A Pledge to Interoperability
  5. Professional Support
