“From my experience, the billing and coding capability is one of the biggest advantages. The ophthalmology EHR system documents everything based upon your input and suggests the right code based upon what you have documented.”

Christine Sykora, Practice Administrator, Advanced Eye Care, SC

“We’re happy with the efficiency we’ve created with EMA. We used to see 650 patients a month on paper and now see over 900 a month with fewer providers and shorter hours. EMA has also been a contributing factor to the 26% increase in revenue we’ve experienced over the last five years.”

“The ophthalmology EHR training and education we received were so thorough that we were able to continue with our existing patient flow and did not need to decrease our productivity during implementation. If we do need support, the Modernizing Medicine team is always responsive.”

Ophthalmology Practice Management Unhindered

Our #1 ophthalmology EHR is built for iPad use, freeing you up to move around the room and interact with patients instead of typing at a computer. Simply tap the screen to quickly document or show patients key information. All the while, your scribe can work in tandem with you from a desktop computer. At the end of the exam, our ophthalmology electronic medical records system automatically generates a written note and bill, suggesting CPT, ICD-10 and modifier codes for you based on your EMA data. Before the patient even leaves the room, your documentation can be done!

Access Records Remotely

Since EMA is cloud-based, you don’t have to leave your records behind when you leave your office. With PocketEMA™, our ophthalmology electronic medical records app for your smartphone, you can connect to EMA from almost anywhere and check patient charts easily. In most states, you can even ePrescribe. In the office, the PocketEMA Apple Watch app helps make busy days easier by putting your schedule, chart notes, messages and more right on your wrist. Plus, a cloud-based ophthalmology EHR system means you can log in from virtually any iPad or computer—no need to buy, set up or maintain expensive onsite server equipment.

Superior Healthcare Technology Empowers Superior Care

Access Diagnostic Images Right From the Patient’s Chart

Access, review, annotate and share patients’ diagnostic images with the touch of a button from the same system you use to document their visit. Our Image Management system integrates with EMA, automatically uploading images from your connected diagnostic imaging devices.

You can easily review DICOM images from current or historical exams, compare images side by side to assess progression, or sync OCT slices to review dynamic sequences. Whether you’re using the iPad or web version, you’ll have images to help support your diagnostic findings right at your fingertips.

Illustrate Freely With the Drawing Board

Using your finger or an Apple Pencil, you can draw freehand on photos or eye diagrams, and your drawings will be automatically added to the appropriate parts of the patient record. Alternatively, choose from a library of prepopulated drawings or pull forward your previous drawing for the patient, edit it and save it to the current visit note. It’s just another way our leading EHR technology is Modernizing Medicine and shaping the future of ophthalmology software.

Capture Data Visually With the Interactive Anatomical Atlas™

Taking ophthalmic illustrations to the next level, the Interactive Anatomical Atlas lets you zoom in and peel back its 3D layers to view the fundus, slit lamp, eye cross section and more. It’s an ideal tool for educating patients and, with anatomical locations preloaded, it can even suggest an ICD-10 code automatically when you tap on the touchscreen display.

A Smarter Kind of Data for Ophthalmology

Don’t Just Capture Information; Leverage It to Improve Outcomes

While other ophthalmology software gathers data as free text, EMA primarily collects structured data, so the system can understand what information means and how to harness it. This enables EMA to automate time-consuming tasks like coding as well as run powerful analytical studies. For instance, you can benchmark your E&M and eye code utilization against other providers in your practice and against CMS Medicare Part B utilization data.

MIPS and MACRA scorecards in EMA, an iPad-based EHR software for ophthalmologists

Be Better Prepared for MIPS and MACRA

Now that Meaningful Use (MU) and PQRS have become part of MIPS, CMS is paying ophthalmologists on a curve. To maximize your chance of success under MIPS, it’s vital to know where you stand before the reporting deadline arrives, so you can adjust as needed. With powerful benchmarking tools, our built-in MIPS solution can help you do just that.

Modernizing Medicine®’s 2015 Edition Certified EMA ophthalmology EHR can not only compute your MIPS measures automatically within the flow of the exam, but also show you how we believe you’re performing compared to your peers. This can help you stay on track for MIPS success while dedicating more time to your patients. Learn more about MIPS and MACRA here.

Make Ophthalmology ICD-10 Easy

Many ophthalmology EHR systems risk inaccurate coding and claim denials by forcing you to use ICD-10 codebooks, lookups or translation tools. EMA, on the other hand, uses Modernizing Medicine’s innovative technology to suggest specific ICD-10 codes automatically. Not only does this save time, but also our clients frequently discover that they improve their ophthalmology billing accuracy.

Integrated Ophthalmology Inventory Management

By using an integrated Inventory Management system, it can help improve tracking of intravitreal injectables and products such as drops, while helping to decrease costs by mitigating lost inventory. See more here.

Ophthalmology EHR Software: Free Download or Demo?

Many vendors offer a free EHR software download as a try-before-you-buy incentive. Sounds fine on paper, but what can you really expect from a free download? Probably not much. It might provide a vague sense of features and functionality but zero insight into how the software can help empower your practice.

Modernizing Medicine doesn’t offer free downloads because our ophthalmology software can be customized to fit different practice workflows. What we do provide are free personalized demos that quickly and clearly show how we can help you leverage our ophthalmology EHR. So, skip the free download and schedule your demo today!
