Modernizing Medicine Launches EMA Otolaryngology at AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting

Company Now Offers Highly Intuitive, Touch-Based EMR System with Built-in Specialty-Specific Medical Knowledge for Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists

Boca Raton, Florida – September 19, 2014Modernizing Medicine, Inc., the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™), a cloud-based, specialty-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system, is launching its newest offering made specifically for otolaryngologists, EMA Otolaryngology™. The latest solution will be showcased at the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting 2014, starting Sunday, September 21st in Orlando, Florida.

Developed by otolaryngologists, template and macro-free EMA Otolaryngology contains built-in, specialty-specific medical knowledge and is the first EMR system of its kind for physicians specializing in ear, nose and throat.

“As a practicing otolaryngologist, I was frustrated with the available EMR systems on the market,” said Medical Director of EMA Otolaryngology David Lehman, MD. “I was never satisfied with templates; they weren’t tailored to the specific medical conditions I treat as an ENT doctor. I knew there had to be a better solution, and one that wouldn’t get in the way of face-to-face interactions with my patients. Having coded EMA Otolaryngology myself and using it in my own practice, I know it’s the EMR system my ENT colleagues have been longing for.”

EMA Otolaryngology is available as a native iPad application and can be accessed via the Internet virtually anywhere and at any time. This flexible format, combined with EMA’s touch-screen interface and advanced ICD-10 capabilities, gives providers the freedom they need to efficiently run their practices and the comfort of knowing that charting plus coding for billing can be completed during the patient encounter.

“As is the case with most medical specialties, otolaryngology is ripe with unique challenges which require tailored and innovative solutions for improving patient care,” said Daniel Cane, CEO of Modernizing Medicine. “Because practicing otolaryngologists code their deep knowledge into the system, we are able to provide physicians a tool that improves both their workflow and patient outcomes.”

“What really struck me and stood out with EMA Otolaryngology was how intuitive it is. The detailed ENT-specific information adapts to my style of practice and learns my preferences. It understands what we, as ENT physicians, do,” shares EMA Otolaryngology user R. Paul Fulmer, MD, of Real Sinus Solutions in Austin, Texas.

The latest offering from Modernizing Medicine, EMA Otolaryngology includes all of the features EMA has become known for, including the EMA Interactive Anatomical Atlas™ and EMA Virtual Exam Room™. AAO-HNSF attendees can view all of these features within EMA Otolaryngology at Modernizing Medicine’s booth 647. Visitors can also speak with Dr. David Lehman, hear his personal account of using EMA Otolaryngology and learn more about its features.
