Health IT leader demonstrates continued support for dermatologists in the age of value-based care with intuitive, automated reporting tools
Boca Raton, Fla. – July 26, 2017 – Specialty-specific health information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine, Inc., will showcase its comprehensive dermatology suite, ModMed Dermatology™ and award-winning electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA™, at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Summer Meeting in New York, New York.
Ranked by Black Book as the #1 EHR system for dermatologists for four consecutive years, EMA was designed to help increase efficiencies, drive value-based decisions, reduce healthcare costs and promote quality care. The company recently announced that through Modernizing Medicine’s Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) qualified registry, 3,438 providers were able to successfully submit 2016 data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and meet the PQRS minimum requirements.
EMA continues to support clients’ compliance mandates under the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program through built-in MIPS intelligence. Similar to the technology that led PQRS success rates, the solution offers intuitive composite score reporting, robust analytics and benchmarking reports that document healthcare providers’ performance in near real-time directly in EMA.
“2017 has been a year of change and opportunity for the healthcare industry. With value-based payment models currently underway, the sector is one step closer to improving quality of care for patients and ensuring better, more accurate reimbursement for providers,” said Dr. Michael Sherling, chief medical and strategy officer and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “At the same time, these changes have constituted a substantial hurdle for many private practices. To benefit from these new models, dermatologists must have the right technology solution in place that can accurately document patient encounters with structured data and track their performance with robust analytics and benchmarking tools. This facilitates more accurate and efficient quality of care reporting and ensures the practice is fully reimbursed for their services.”
At the AAD Summer Meeting, Modernizing Medicine will showcase its cloud, mobile and touch-based dermatology-specific products and services within the ModMed Dermatology suite, including its new patient kiosk, ModMed Kiosk™. The kiosk is Modernizing Medicine’s latest platform built to increase patient engagement by speeding up the check-in process and having patients update their profile information, medical history and sign consent forms on an iPad. Kiosk integrates with EMA directly, adds data to the patient’s record and is a component of Modernizing Medicine’s patient engagement strategy designed to save practices time and improve efficiencies, leading to better outcomes.
The products and services being showcasing during the event include:
- Practice Management
- ModMed Telehealth™
- Specialized Registries
- Analytics including the Clinical and Financial Modules
- ModMed Kiosk
