Improve Outcomes

Knowledge is power. Knowing the results of patient treatments empowers you to help make patients healthier, faster.

Data makes a difference

Physicians heal people one patient at a time, but the collective wisdom of aggregate data is a powerful tool with the ability to change healthcare. EMA’s cloud-based approach to collecting and storing patient information – rather than an EMR system that’s simply a collector of static clinical data – can make a difference in the way you work and a difference in medical outcomes.

MACRA, MIPS and Orthopedic Surgeons

How emphasis on quality over volume is changing the way you get paid.

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) shifts the thought process behind Medicare payments, offering orthopedic surgeons 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.

Learn more about MACRA and MIPS here.

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.

Here are five ways EMA Orthopedics addresses MACRA and MIPS to help you thrive in 2017 and beyond:

  1. Real Patient Engagement and Analytical Tools
  2. Automated Quality Data
  3. Population Health Registries
  4. A Pledge to Interoperability
  5. Professional Support

The EMA Virtual Exam Room™ is much like your physical exam room. Only smarter. Talk with a patient. Perform an exam. When it’s done, diagnose the injury and create a treatment plan – all on one touch-based screen. The EMA Virtual Exam Room adapts to your preferences at every level – diagnoses, findings and treatments. With orthopedic diagnoses built in, EMA can present relevant plans and anticipate specific aspects of a patient’s treatment. And from one set of touch interactions, EMA can generate associated documents.

Interactive Anatomical Atlas

Use the EMA Interactive Anatomical Atlas™, a 3D, zoomable, high-resolution anatomic body illustration, to assign diagnoses and treatments and characterize findings. The skeleton view in EMA Orthopedics™ isn’t simply a visual representation of bones; it’s organized into fracture patterns based on how each individual bone breaks most often.

Code with Confidence

Get paid for the work you do – code precisely and confidently

Drop Your Code Book

Coding made easy

EMA generates codes and populates your superbill right in the exam room. The exam ends, documentation is done and the bill is ready – automatically.

ICD 10 COding Intelligence

ICD coding done for you

Using EMA’s touch-based system, your coding will be done when the patient exam ends.  ICD-10 coding will be easy with EMA. It’s done for you.


Chart a simple course to ICD-10

Orthopedic surgeons are special. With ICD-10, your section of codes is expanding more than any other specialty – and more than eight times the 17,000 codes in ICD-9. Coding will have to be much more specific in order for you to get paid. In EMA Orthopedics, all of those codes are built-in. Read our helpful paper.
