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.
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.
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.

EMA Outcomes™ and EMA Grand Rounds™
Both powered by the EMA Network, EMA Outcomes provides a quick snapshot to assess patient diagnoses for immediate data-driven decisions, while EMA Grand Rounds instantly analyses and synthesizes clinical data across the entire EMA Network.
Powered by the EMA Network, EMA Outcomes displays, with the simple touch of a button, a visual timeline of a patient’s diseases and treatments over time. Physicians can easily determine if a patient’s conditions are improving or declining over charted time periods. Not until now could they select one specific diagnosis to review. Depicted in an easy-to-understand graphical format, historical clinical data is presented to make care better.
