Attendees of AAO-HNSF’s annual meeting can demo automated reporting, MIPS compliance and more in ENT EHR system
Boca Raton, Fla. – September 7, 2017 – Specialty-specific health information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine, Inc., will showcase the latest enhancements to ModMed Otolaryngology™, a suite of ENT-specific products and services including award-winning electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA™, at this year’s American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNSF) Annual Meeting and OTO Expo.
Rated the #1 Otolaryngology EHR system by Black Book in 2017, EMA understands the workflow of physicians specializing in ear, nose and throat conditions because practicing physicians built it. The EHR system comes with ENT-specific medical knowledge and was designed to help save physicians valuable time with unique features such as an adaptive learning engine. The intuitive native iPad application can be accessed via the Internet virtually anywhere, anytime.
EMA captures structured data at the point of care, facilitating the measurement and reporting of quality of care and outcomes. This is especially relevant as EMA can help physicians score well in the improvement activities component of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), the value-based care initiative introduced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). EMA was among one of the first EHR systems to include built in MIPS composite score reporting, and the platform is supported by advisory service options. Modernizing Medicine has a successful track record of value-based care reporting, as it announced earlier this year.
Modernizing Medicine not only offers the award winning EHR system, but also a suite of complementary products and services in ModMed Otolaryngology including Practice Management, revenue cycle management (RCM) and Analytics. Analytics helps turn data into insights, such as analyzing a practice’s financials or what actions providers can take to improve care. Actionable data technology provides powerful, interactive dashboards and brings together clinical, financial and operational data. The cloud-based systems were designed to enhance everyday workflow in a practice.
Renee A. Walker, D.O., FAOCO, Joplin Ear, Nose and Throat, one of the company’s valued customers and a leading ENT practitioner in Joplin, Mo. and Galena, Kan., notes, “With my old EHR, I was near burn out spending three to four hours per night charting at home. EMA and PM have put a breath of fresh air into my life and my practice since we joined the Modernizing Medicine family.”
“Because I helped develop the system, I designed it to make it easy for ENTs to transition to value-based care,” said David Lehman, M.D., senior medical director of otolaryngology at Modernizing Medicine. “In today’s landscape, ENTs can benefit from utilizing EMA’s data-driven system that allows us to report and monitor patient progress, tackle MIPS compliance and improve relationships with patients. EMA is visually appealing, making it easy to educate my patients and keep them engaged in their care.”
The Modernizing Medicine team will provide demonstrations at booth #2222 during AAO-HNSF OTO from Sunday, September 10 – Wednesday, September 13 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL.
