Here’s What Your Peers Are Saying
Andrew Rosenthal, MD, Medical Director of Plastic Surgery
“The iPad allows me to engage with the patient and make them feel they have my full attention. I can access images and drawings from their chart and print educational material with just a few taps. The technology is not a hindrance to the patient encounter; it’s an enhancement.”
Stephanie Beidler Teotia, MD
“EMA has been a blessing for my practice. It has reduced personnel, allows for access of patient records 24/7 and works well for both cosmetic and reconstructive patients.”
The EMR Tailored to You
You don’t work the same way as every other plastic surgeon, so why should your EMR system? Using its adaptive learning engine, EMA adjusts to your unique style of practice and recognizes your preferences, such as suture or implant types. It even suggests your top diagnoses and treatments and anticipates your next move, so you can work faster. Our approach of teaching practicing physicians how to program EMR systems is what makes EMA feel like you designed it yourself.
Smarter Data for Better Outcomes
EMA Doesn’t Just Collect Information. It Understands It.
Structured data empowers you to thrive in today’s healthcare environment in ways that free-text EMRs can’t. It can help you discover how your practice is truly performing and put your plastic surgery practice in a better position for long-term success.
Powerful analytics, for instance, can help you improve your care and profitability. Plus, structured data can free up time by automating tasks like ICD-10 plastic surgery coding and aspects of MIPS reporting.
Greater Diagnostic and Treatment Power
Easily access data that helps you make better decisions. EMA Outcomes provides a visual timeline of each patient’s progress, while Grand Rounds synthesizes clinical data from plastic surgeons nationwide to show you the most common treatments for specific diseases.
Easy ICD-10 Coding
Why spend time searching for the right medical ICD-10 codes? Instead of using code lookups, General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs) or ICD-9 code to ICD-10 translators, EMA has them built in. It even suggests your CPT, E&M and modifier codes as well as benchmarking your E&M code utilization against other providers in your practice and against CMS Medicare Part B utilization data.
By harnessing this plastic surgery EMR technology, you can improve billing accuracy.
“I was a chronic under-coder, and I was never sure if my documentation was thorough enough to justify an audit. With EMA, I have fewer turned-down claims due to coding issues, and my insurance revenue has increased. EMA paid for itself in the coding functionality.”
– Sonya Merriman, MD, Plastic Surgery Associates of Valdosta
Focus on What Matters Most
We took the best plastic surgery EMR system qualities and made them even better with our Cloud, Mobile, Touch EMA technology. Since it’s iPad-based, EMA gives you the freedom to move around the room and connect with your patients instead of turning your back on them to type. Simply tap the screen to instantly document and display key information, and EMA automatically generates a complete note and bill at the end of the visit.
When you spend less time documenting and more time practicing, you can deliver topnotch care that sets your plastic surgery practice apart from the competition.
Freedom to Practice Virtually Wherever, Whenever
With EMA, your data is stored in the cloud and protected by security protocols, so you can stay connected with patients even when you’re working from home or attending a conference. PocketEMA™, our plastic surgery app for iPhone and Android, makes it quick and easy to access patient records and send in prescriptions.* And when you’re rushing around the office, you can use your Apple Watch to view chart notes, messages, your schedule and more at a glance.
Having a cloud-based plastic surgery EMR system also eliminates the time and expense of server setup and maintenance—just log in from virtually any iPad or computer, and EMA is good to go!
*Available in most states.
Documentation Made Visual
Take before-and-after photos on your iPad and add them straight to the patient health record. You can even connect each photo to a specific visit or procedure.
Interactive Anatomical Atlas™
This 3D body illustration allows you to zoom in and peel back the skin to reveal muscles, joints, tendons and organs. Patients love it, and since there are tens of thousands of anatomical locations preloaded, it populates the ICD-10 codes automatically when you tap the image.
Innovative Drawing Board
Draw freehand on photos or the Interactive Anatomical Atlas and attach your drawings to the electronic patient record. You can illustrate plastic surgery procedures, plan surgical incisions, document injectables and set realistic post-op expectations with your patient.
Get More Done in Fewer Steps
Electronic Consent Forms
Upload existing plastic surgery consent forms or create custom forms fast on the iPad app. Patients can sign with their finger or an Apple Pencil, and you can instantly save the form to the electronic medical record.
For common plastic surgery consultations, operative notes and post-op appointments, you can create “master visits” with comprehensive patient, procedure, diagnosis and treatment data. In one click, you can apply this pre-populated information to document an entire visit.
