Ortho-specific EHR, Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management Systems Improve Patient Care and Support Value-based Purchasing
Boca Raton, Fla. – March 2, 2016 – Modernizing Medicine, Inc., the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™), a cloud-based, iPad native, specialty-specific electronic health record (EHR) system, will showcase the latest advancements within its orthopedic-specific solution suite at this year’s American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting.
Recognizing improved efficiencies and useful data are keys to successful physician practices, Modernizing Medicine created modmed Orthopedics™, an orthopedic-specific solutions suite encompassing data-centric products and services including:
- modmed EMA™: iPad native modmed EMA was ranked #1 on Black Book Market Research Top EHR list in the orthopedic space in 2015. This mobile, cloud-based EHR system designed by practicing orthopedic surgeons automatically adapts to each provider’s unique style of practice. The collection of structured data facilitates the automated ICD-10 coding, Meaningful Use and PQRS reporting, while eliminating redundancies, automating traditionally manual tasks and improving data sharing and collaboration between providers.
- modmed PM™: Built by Modernizing Medicine’s own practice management professionals, modmed PM streamlines the financial and operational flow of information. Integrated directly within modmed EMA, modmedPM is an all-in-one solution for improved patient and office flows for the front desk, patient billing, practice administrators and medical staff.
- modmed RCM™: More than just a billing service, modmed RCM uses industry-leading technology, people and customized processes designed to help improve efficiency and increase practice revenue. modmed RCM manages the processes that impact a practice’s bottom line from first patient contact to paid account balances.
“The team at Modernizing Medicine is committed to providing our customers with a practice suite designed specifically for orthopedic surgeons’ unique needs. Our specialty-specific approach helps us to create office efficiencies and improve patient outcomes,” said Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “We believe systems should help physicians during this shift to value-based purchasing and the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System, or MIPS, that is increasingly gaining industry attention.”
“There is no question modmed EMA saves me time. I can see twenty new patients and be done one hour to an hour and a half earlier than in the past. If I consider my time saved, that equals to saving over $125,000 per year,” said Dr. Daniel T. Stein, MD, a practicing orthopedic surgeon at Coastline Orthopedic Associates. “The fact that there are orthopedic surgeons coding their experience into the program as opposed to technical engineers who have never been in an orthopedic office is invaluable. Not only is the intuitive interface convenient, I trust that the diagnoses and treatment options I use are in modmed EMA.”
