2019 Black Book Survey Ranks Modernizing Medicine’s EMR #1 for Seven Specialty-Specific EMR Systems


Modernizing Medicine continues to score top rankings for specialty-specific EMRs in dermatology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and ophthalmology

BOCA RATON, Fla. – March 26, 2019 – Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader Modernizing Medicine® today announced that six of its specialty-specific electronic health record (EHR) systems ranked first on the Black Book™ Physician Practice & Ambulatory Solutions top EHR lists:

The company was also rated #1 for Solo/Single Practice (Surgical Specialties).

This is the ninth consecutive year that the gGastro® EHR, by Modernizing Medicine® Gastroenterology formerly gMed®, has been named the #1 Gastroenterology EHR system by Black Book. gGastro is the only gastroenterology EHR system to rank #1 since Black Book started polling for the Top EHR Lists in 2010.

Modernizing Medicine’s suite of specialty products and services have also received top rankings for many consecutive years. The company’s mobile EHR system, EMA™, has achieved the following:

  • #1 dermatology EHR system for six consecutive years
  • #1 otolaryngology EHR system for five consecutive years
  • #1 plastic surgery EHR for four consecutive years
  • #1 ophthalmology EHR for three consecutive years
  • #1 orthopedic EHR for two consecutive years

Additionally, Modernizing Medicine’s orthopedic EMR achieved top rankings for overall orthopedic satisfaction in the KLAS Orthopedic EMR report in December 2018.

“Thanks to EMA, our communications and documentation are more efficient than ever,” said Erik Niemi, DO, an ophthalmologist at Advanced Eyecare, located in New England. “The system is intuitive, with a clean layout and user interface that makes information easy to find. For routine communications, I can complete and send custom preset letters to a primary care physician before leaving the exam room. We also have much easier on-call access to patient data as our physicians in any office can read each other’s notes instead of relying on the patient’s explanation.”
