The Aesthetic Meeting – New York, NY – April 12, 2013 – PatientNOW, a leading provider of comprehensive business technology for cosmetic surgery, dermatology, medical spas and aesthetic medical practices, and Modernizing Medicine, the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™), a cloud-based specialty-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system, announced today a strategic alliance to offer plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery practices best-in-class solutions for practice management and electronic medical records.

PatientNOW offers a complete software platform for the modern aesthetic medical practice. PatientNOW is a leading edge software developer, meeting the specific needs of aesthetic medicine. From the company’s inception, a customer centric focus has resulted in a comprehensive software solution designed by plastic surgeons to meet their unique business requirements. PatientNOW features PAR – Patient Acquisition and Retention™, Patient Portal, Photo Management, Inventory Management, Point of Sale and Certified EMR/Practice Management.

“Going in to 2013, we want our customers to be able to choose the EMR that works best for their practice. Modernizing Medicine’s cloud-based, specialty specific EMR offers an intuitive and complementary method for medical record documentation,” states Jerry Jacobson, PatientNOW President and co-founder. “We are thrilled about this collaboration, which will offer the market a total office solution that will help practices increase their productivity.”

Modernizing Medicine’s EMA Plastic Surgery™ and EMA Cosmetic™ are cloud-based, touch-based mobile EMR systems designed specifically for plastic and cosmetic surgeons.  Using the native iPad app, EMA can be accessed virtually anywhere at anytime. Since no two surgeons practice the same way, Modernizing Medicine built EMA as an adaptive learning system, which adjusts to each surgeon’s unique practice style. EMA includes the EMA Interactive Anatomical Atlas™, which is a tool that enables surgeons to manipulate an image of the body in a zoomable three-dimensional layered way.

“PatientNOW offers one of the best Practice Management systems on the market today and EMA Plastic Surgery and EMA Cosmetic are certainly top of class for specialty-specific EMRs,” said Daniel Cane, President and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine, “We’re thrilled to be able to make available to our customers very strong and complete EMR and practice management systems that will make their patient encounters and documentation process much easier.”

Industry leader and President of Karen Zupko & Associates, Inc., Karen Zupko, commented on the collaboration: “The combination of PatientNOW and Modernizing Medicine gives plastic surgeons a solid platform designed specifically for them.”
