Modernizing Medicine to Showcase Comprehensive Solutions for MIPS and Value-Based Care at Dermatology Conferences

Boca Raton, Fla. – February 28, 2017 – Specialty-specific health information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine, Inc., will present the latest solutions in its award-winning electronic health record (EHR) system to address value-based care and improve physician efficiency at the Association of Dermatology Administrators & Managers (ADAM) Annual Meeting and the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting this week.

The company recently announced that EMA™, the mobile EHR system in the ModMed Dermatology™ suite, is among the first in the United States to include built-in Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) intelligence, including composite score reporting, robust analytics and benchmarking reports that document healthcare providers’ performance in near real-time. The automated solution is currently available and was designed to help clients exceed the minimum threshold or achieve exceptional performance with MIPS in 2017.

“In the new age of MIPS and value-based care, it’s critical to have the right healthcare technology to help find the balance of driving better outcomes while reducing the administrative burden on physicians and their staff,” said Dr. Michael Sherling, CMO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “Several strategies exist to help dermatologists, including collecting structured patient information during the exam to reduce data entry, interoperability and providing transparency and visibility for value-based reimbursement. If your systems don’t support these strategies, then you’re probably spending too much time documenting, not enough time on quality patient interactions and not being fully reimbursed for your services.”

Dr. Sherling is scheduled to present strategies to address MIPS at this year’s ADAM conference on Tuesday, February 28, from 4:10 – 5:10 p.m. at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, Fla.

At ADAM and AAD, Modernizing Medicine will showcase the mobile, touch and cloud-based ModMed Dermatology suite of products and services designed to help drive value-based decisions, promote quality care and reduce healthcare costs. The dermatology-specific suite includes EMA; Practice Management; Revenue Cycle Management; ModMed Telehealth™; Pathology; Specialized Registries; and Analytics, including the Clinical Performance Activities Module which provides metrics dashboards to further help physicians track and improve the quantity and quality of referrals and find revenue gaps. Modernizing Medicine will also introduce the Patient Kiosk, a platform built to speed up the check-in process by letting patients update their personal information and medical history and sign consent forms on an iPad. Kiosk integrates with EMA to add data to the patient’s record automatically.

In addition, Modernizing Medicine and AAD are collaborating on a DataDerm registry pilot for 2017. EMA users who participate in the pilot will receive the following benefits:

  • DataDerm monitoring and submission portal access
  • Regular data refreshes
  • The ability to review data before submission

“Clinical data is needed from all dermatologists to benefit the specialty. AAD is pleased that Modernizing Medicine is now offering the option for their users to contribute to DataDerm,” shares Marta J. Van Beek, MD, MPH, FAAD, Assistant Secretary-Treasurer of AAD, and Chair of AAD’s Ad Hoc Task Force on Data Collection.

Dr. Sherling adds, “Modernizing Medicine welcomes the opportunity to work with DataDerm and we feel that dermatologists and their patients across the United States will benefit from the collaboration.”

Used by over 35 percent of U.S. dermatologists, EMA has been named the #1 EHR system for three consecutive years by Black Book Market Research and the top ranked system for dermatologists in the inaugural KLAS® Ambulatory Specialty 2016 One Size Does Not Fit All Performance Report.

Attendees at the upcoming dermatology conferences can learn more about ModMed Dermatology at booth #19 at ADAM from Feb. 27 to March 1 and #2665 at AAD from March 3 to 5 during exhibit hours.
