US Government Grants ModMed® a Patent
BOCA RATON, Fla. – November 10, 2022 – Healthcare technology innovator ModMed is pleased to announce that the US Government granted Patent No. 11,443,836 protecting some of the core functionality of its EHR system — a system designed to save clinicians time documenting exams and allows them to focus more on the patient in front of them.
“This patent solidifies our position in the EMR market for physicians seeking technology designed to make their lives easier,” said Dan Cane, CEO and cofounder of ModMed. “Physician burnout is very real. By using our patented adaptive learning technology, we are able to streamline the documentation process — saving healthcare providers valuable time. No physician I have ever met went to medical school to treat technology; they went to school to treat patients.”
ModMed offers software solutions developed by physicians for physicians. ModMed cofounder and Chief Medical and Strategy Officer Dr. Michael Sherling, and his team of board-certified physicians, are doctors as well as software coders.
“The patent really highlights how unique and innovative our adaptive logic software truly is,” added Dr. Sherling, who has been a practicing dermatologist since 2006 and currently volunteers in a clinic for underserved communities in Palm Beach County, Florida. “Doctors know what doctors need. We develop our product for the specialties we practice in. Every specialty practices medicine differently and each doctor tailors their practice to the patients they are seeing. Out of the box, EMA has the medical knowledge for each speciality, and this helps reduce physician burnout.”
ModMed is transforming healthcare by placing doctors and patients at the center of care through an intelligent, specialty-specific cloud platform. With our electronic health records (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems and our revenue cycle management (RCM) services, our all-in-one solution empowers specialty medical practices by providing clinical, financial and operational software solutions. Our staff physicians help to develop products and services for allergy, dermatology, gastroenterology, OBGYN, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, pain management, plastic surgery, podiatry and urology practices, as well as ambulatory surgery centers.
