Here's What Your Peers Are Saying

Michael DiMarino, MD

Tara Salsman, Office Manager, IVCH Medical Group

“We’ve been using EMA for over two years, and during that time, Modernizing Medicine has made several improvements to the system and is always striving to make more. They make a point to listen to our feedback and incorporate our suggestions into EMA, which benefits not only our practice but also our patients.”

Cindy Fruge

Audley Mackel, MD, Associates in Orthopaedics

“Of all the EMR systems I saw, EMA had what I needed. It’s effortless to learn, and it gives me the confidence that I’m coding appropriately, resulting in higher reimbursements. It’s a relief to know that I can stay informed of my patients’ information from almost anywhere. I look forward to many more years with Modernizing Medicine.”

Leslie Cosner

Nicole Mayo, Daily Operations Administrator, Panhandle Orthopaedics

“Now with EMA, our staff can complete all of the notes during the patient visit or shortly thereafter for some of our more complex patients, and no one stays after hours or works weekends.”

EMA for orthopedics suggesting the provider's most used treatment plans

You Don’t Have to Adapt to EMA—It Adapts to You!

Like a well-trained member of your team, EMA sees how each provider likes to practice and adjusts to fit their needs. Once you log in with your unique EMA username, our adaptive learning engine suggests your top diagnoses and treatments and even anticipates your next move. Can your current orthopedic EMR software do that?

Smarter Data, Better Outcomes

To help you thrive in today’s environment, your EMR needs to do a lot more than just collect information—it needs to understand and leverage that data for your benefit. This is only possible with structured data for orthopedists. While other EMRs limit you by using unstructured free text, EMA’s structured data approach can give you advanced automation and analytics to empower your orthopedic practice.

Designed for MIPS

Now that Meaningful Use (MU) and PQRS have become part of MIPS, CMS is paying providers on a curve. To maximize your potential Medicare reimbursement under MIPS, you’ll need a solution that simplifies the complex value-based care regulations and shows you where you stand on a daily basis.

We built our 2015 Edition Certified orthopedic software to do exactly that. As other practices struggle, you can use EMA’s built-in MIPS automation solution to help your orthopedic practice succeed under MIPS:

  • Collect MIPS data automatically, within your existing workflow
  • Track & benchmark your estimated performance
  • Skip the manual data entry—report to CMS through our MIPS CQM

Improve Diagnostic and Treatment Power

Having a wealth of healthcare insights at your fingertips in your orthopedic EMR software helps make even the most difficult decisions easier. With EMA Grand Rounds, you can instantly see how orthopedic surgeons nationwide commonly treat a disease to help you practice evidence-based medicine. Meanwhile, to help you work even faster while linking each treatment to a tangible outcome, EMA Outcomes shows a visual timeline of each patient’s progress.

Code with Confidence

ICD-10 has burdened orthopedic surgeons with the largest code expansion of any specialty. Sure, you could use an EHR that’s been patched with code lookups, crosswalks or GEMs, but this may drain your time and risk claim denials from inaccurate or unspecified codes.

Instead, consider EMA’s built-in technology that can suggest ICD-10, CPT and modifier codes for you. Keeping up with new ICD-10 codes won’t slow you down with Modernizing Medicine’s EMA EHR for orthopedics!

Practice Unhindered

Our orthopedic surgeons know how limited your time is. That’s why they designed EMA to let you spend it with patients, not your practice EHR. Rather than typing at a computer, you can just tap our orthopedic iPad app while walking around and making eye contact with patients. As you would expect from the best orthopedic EMR available, EMA makes it easy to show patients key information that fosters meaningful discussions about their health.

Throughout the process, your clinical team can collaborate quickly and effortlessly. modmed® Orthopedics can automatically generate a note and bill before the patient leaves the room, giving staff full visibility of what needs to be done. Our orthopedic EMR system even works seamlessly with our orthopedic Practice Management software to connect your front and back offices, plus we interface with hundreds of third-party PM systems.
