Modernizing Medicine’s Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Michael Sherling, is Named One of South Florida Business Journal’s ’40 Under 40’

Boca Raton, FL – June 21, 2013 – Modernizing Medicine, Inc.’s co-founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Sherling, has been named one of South Florida Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” exemplary young executives for 2013. Dr. Sherling follows fellow co-founder and CEO, Daniel Cane, who made the “40 Under 40” list in 2012. This tremendous achievement follows on the heels of Modernizing Medicine®’s recent award wins, including “Fastest Growing Company in South Florida” in 2012 and 2013 by the South Florida Business Journal, and Forbes’ “America’s Most Promising Companies” in 2013.
Modernizing Medicine was founded in 2010, when Dr. Sherling, a Yale and Harvard-trained board certified dermatologist, couldn’t find an electronic medical record (EMR) system that worked for him.  He then partnered with Cane, a serial software entrepreneur, to launch Modernizing Medicine, an electronic medical record and data company, and build a better EMR system.  Modernizing Medicine’s Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™) is built by doctors, for doctors.  Currently, over 2,600 health providers in over 1,000 practices across the U.S. use EMA.
“With most EMR systems doctors have to spend all of their time typing or clicking boxes to input data, sacrificing valuable time with their patients,” explains Dr. Sherling. “EMA brings touch technology to the bedside, allowing doctors to spend more time with their patients and their families.  That makes doctors happy and that’s why we have become so successful so quickly.”
In addition to the EMR systems in dermatology, ophthalmology, optometry, orthopedics, plastic surgery and cosmetics, Modernizing Medicine is currently developing products for gastroenterology and otolaryngology (ENT).  Recently, Modernizing Medicine launched EMA Outcomes™, a revolutionary data analytics product, that tracks how a patient’s disease or condition has changed over time.  EMA visualizes a patient’s data longitudinally presenting at a glance views of trends, treatments and outcomes.
“We’re not just about being faster,” Dr. Sherling says. “We’re about being better.”
