Specialty-specific health IT leader earns #1 rankings on dermatology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, plastic surgery and urology lists; also wins top spot for Single & Solo Practices – Surgical Specialties

Boca Raton, Fla. – May 8, 2017 Modernizing Medicine® announced that six of its specialty-specific electronic health record (EHR) systems have been ranked first on the Black Book™ Physician Practice & Ambulatory Solutions top EHR lists:

The company was also rated #1 Single & Solo Practices – Surgical Specialties.

gGastro™, the EHR system developed by gMed™, a Modernizing Medicine company, has been named the #1 gastroenterology EHR system for the seventh consecutive year. gGastro is the only gastroenterology-specific EHR system to ever be ranked #1 since Black Book started polling for the Top EHR Lists in 2010.

In addition, EMA™, the mobile EHR system in Modernizing Medicine’s suite of specialty products and services, has been named the #1 dermatology EHR system for four consecutive years, the #1 otolaryngology EHR system for three years and the #1 plastic surgery EHR for two years.

“Being continuously named a top-ranked EHR vendor by Black Book is a testament not only to our business model of hiring practicing specialty physicians to develop our software, but also to our entire team for creating and sustaining a superior solution that is easy to use,” said Michael Sherling, MD, MBA, chief medical officer and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “As the healthcare industry shifts towards value-based care reimbursement models, we intend to continue to support the unique needs and challenges of specialty practices to help them improve their clinical, financial and operational outcomes.”

“I am a better physician because of EMA in terms of improved communication with other doctors due to the thorough and detailed documentation it generates,” shares Nicole Fram, MD, Advanced Vision Care, located in Los Angeles, Calif. “My notes are legible, intelligent, customizable and easy to read. EMA enables me to do all these things I’ve dreamt of in an EHR system and I’m no longer spending hours dictating each night.”
