Data makes a difference
An effective EMR system isn’t just a repository for information, but a powerful tool to improve patient health. By capturing structured patient data, you now have the ability to trend a disease longitudinally across visits to help gauge efficacy and guide treatment options. You can also learn how other GIs across the US treat similar patients.
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) shifts the thought process behind Medicare payments, offering gastroenterologists positive payment adjustments for providing higher quality care. Should those standards not be met, however, practices could experience negative payment adjustments. And it can add up fast.
By combining three existing quality reporting programs, PQRS, MU and the Value-based Payment Modifier, and adding a new program called Practice Improvement, MACRA created 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.
Gastroenterological procedures and exams are available in EMA’s Virtual Exam Room, along with common symptoms, conditions, impressions and relevant treatment plans for a specific diagnosis. EMA Gastroenterology remembers how you tend to treat irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, hepatitis C and other complicated digestive disorders.
Coding made easy
EMA effortlessly generates accurate codes and populates your superbill right in the exam room. The exam ends, documentation is done and the bill is ready – automatically.
ICD coding done for you
Using EMA’s touch-based system, your coding will be done when the patient exam ends. With built-in medical knowledge, you can be confident that all aspects of the exam will be accurately documented according to Medicare guidelines. ICD-10 coding will be easy with EMA. It’s done for you.

EMA makes it easy to track relevant data and earn your incentive payment.
