Modernizing Medicine® Releases Enhanced Ophthalmic Image Management to Improve Clinical Workflow Automation and Efficiency
Fast image and diagnostic data transfer can improve the full automation workflow of patient information, saving time and increasing practice performance
May 12, 2021 – Boca Raton, Fla. — Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader Modernizing Medicine® today announced it has released the latest version of ophthalmic Image Management to help ophthalmologists save time and deliver efficiency associated with diagnostic imaging workflows.
Many ophthalmologists benefit from having an all-in-one solution that bridges data flow from the patient experience to the front and back offices. However, the clinical staff is still often manually uploading demographic information when using diagnostic devices, which can take time and create friction for patients.
With Modernizing Medicine’s Image Management solution, patient data is pushed to diagnostic devices and seamlessly processed back into the patient chart. Practices are realizing even greater efficiency in having a complete automated system.
Tony Turner, Chief Information Officer at Johnson City Eye Clinic and Surgery Center, shared, “With the enhanced Image Management capabilities, we can rapidly receive and store DICOM images from our diagnostic devices, and our physicians can access those images right from the patient’s chart. Compared to our previous solution, we now save up to 15 minutes per patient.”
“We have spent the last decade focused on saving physicians and practices time, which equates to better patient outcomes and greater practice performance,” said Dr. Michael Rivers, Director of Ophthalmology at Modernizing Medicine. “We’re delighted to now remove this layer of manual data entry to help drive efficiency at the technician level. The fact is that saving seconds and minutes from every interaction adds up quickly.”
New patients typically require use from multiple devices in a first time visit. With Image Management, technicians and ophthalmic photographers can quickly populate patient demographic information and query the system for updates, which enables them to process more patients in a given day.
Modernizing Medicine’s Image Management solution connects with advanced imaging devices such as OCTs, visual fields, fundus cameras and more. It also enables clinicians to switch between documenting and opening images, while allowing them to sync and review image sequences side by side all within the patient’s chart, while the patient is still in the room. Already more than 50% of modmed® Ophthalmology clients have adopted Image Management since it was released in 2019.
Ophthalmic Image Management is part of the modmed Ophthalmology suite of solutions. Built by practicing ophthalmologists, this all-in-one suite can help ophthalmologists save time and clicks.
