Speed. Convenience. Adaptability.
Undoubtedly, those requirements are at the top of your list when considering an EHR system. Turns out, they’re what we based EMA on as well. The speed of tap-and-touch technology to eliminate tedious typing. The convenience of having features to help you stay compliant with new requirements. And the adaptability of a system that learns your unique workflow and then mimics it.
When the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was signed into law in 2015, it immediately shifted the thought process behind Medicare payments. Soon, physicians will enjoy positive payment adjustments for providing higher quality care. Should they not meet those standards, however, practices could experience negative payment adjustments. And it can add up fast.
MACRA combined three existing quality reporting programs, PQRS, MU and the Value-based Payment Modifier, and added a new program called Practice Improvement to create 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.
An ideal timesaving feature, Protocols lets you create master visits for frequently encountered conditions so you can record patient, procedure, diagnosis and treatment information once and then effortlessly apply it to exams like routine visits, new patients and pre- and post-operative instruction.

“Before we went through the vetting process, I wasn’t confident any EHR system would live up to our accuracy or efficiency on paper. EMA has proven me wrong, saving me at least five minutes per patient encounter. I have the ability to see the same volume of patients that I was with paper — sometimes even more.”
