With 100 percent of Modernizing Medicine customers interviewed stating they “would buy again,” EMA for ophthalmology achieved fantastic scores across the board, including the highest rating for customer loyalty, implementation quality and ophthalmology-specific enhancements, as well as above-market average scores for ease of use, phone/web support and other key performance categories researched by KLAS.

Customers were enthusiastic about EMA’s cloud-based solution and appreciate that it is tailored specifically to ophthalmology practices. Modernizing Medicine’s users reported that EMA’s specialization makes it easy to use, whether it’s in the implementation phase, a new product update or for an everyday patient visit.


“Given my background as a practicing ophthalmologist who helps develop an EHR system, I’ve seen firsthand how important it is to have an ophthalmology EHR system that rapidly evolves and improves,” said Dr. Michael Rivers, director of EMA ophthalmology at Modernizing Medicine. “The results of this KLAS report indicate that our solutions help meet the needs of our clients and should be viewed as a viable option for eyecare professionals in the market for a new EHR. We look forward to continuing to build technology designed to reduce physician burnout and support ophthalmologists in all aspects of their practices.”

Modernizing Medicine exhibits strong performance when it comes to delivering ophthalmology-specific enhancements compared to its competitors, illustrating the company’s commitment to continued innovation and the value of client feedback to help influence future product features. One of the survey respondents for Modernizing Medicine stated, “We haven’t really had to request much because Modernizing Medicine doesn’t leave much out.
