Modernizing Medicine, Inc. announced the launch of its modmed Electronic Medical Assistant for pain medicine, a specialty-specific, cloud-based electronic health record system with tap and touch features providing access to an anatomic atlas.
According to the press release, over 75,000 touch points on the skin are available with an option to ‘peel back” the skin to reveal pain points in the muscles, joints and tendons in addition to the electronic medical assistant (EMA) and electronic health record (EHR).
“The beauty of modmed EMA for Pain Medicine is that it is designed and coded by real pain medicine physicians that understand the unique challenges of the specialty,” Elana M. Oberstein, MD, senior medical director of Musculoskeletal at Modernizing Medicine, said in a press release. “Not only does the system remember physician preferences for particular diagnoses and procedures, the Protocols feature lets users create master visits for frequently encountered conditions. These user designed protocols can then be applied to exams like routine visits, new patient exams and pre- and post-procedural instruction.”
“Before we went through the vetting process with modmed EMA for Pain Medicine, I wasn’t confident that any EHR system would live up to paper,” Aneesh Singla, MD, MPH, a physician on the EHR taskforce at the National Spine and Pain Centers, said in the release. “modmed EMA has proven me wrong, saving me at least five minutes per patient. Not only do I have the ability to see the same volume of patients as I did with paper, sometimes even more, while overall having less time spent on documentation.”
