Here is a full transcription of the video:

On the visit overview screen, you will be able to see the patient's past medical history, medications, allergies, social and family history in each encounter. We've given patients the ability to complete this information prior to their appointment. Through our patient engagement tools so that it will seamlessly be populated in their chart. This empowers patients to be involved in their health, helps take the burden off your staff by reducing paper usage and manual data entry during intake, helps to eliminate bottlenecks at check in and could reduce time spent in the waiting room. Additionally, you can easily review a historical summary for the patient giving you pertinent information regarding that patient's past treatment and history, which eliminates searching through previous encounters. This allows you to provide care tailored to your patients.

Provided with hundreds of chief complaints out of the box, EMA will assist with reducing time spent in the documentation process utilizing adaptive learning. Chief complaints will populate based on the most commonly seen issues for each provider. Your patients medical assistance or nurses can enter the HPI information utilizing our allergy specific chief complaints. If a more structured method is preferred, EMA will guide the user through responses specific to the chief complaint that was selected, resulting in a notation detailing the patient's concerns. Additionally, your clinicians will have the ability to free type or dictate if they choose.

Within the virtual exam room, you will see all of the robust allergy, asthma and immunology specific content. Exams will act as placeholders for your normal findings, so you can allow EMA to do the work for you anticipating your next step. The impressions list adapts to your most common diagnoses, reducing the need to search and populating what you need right at your fingertips. Utilizing the ICD-10 expert helps you choose the proper specificity needed for reimbursement purposes, reducing in claim denials. And diagnosis specific findings allow for efficient documentation, providing pertinent exam findings for each diagnosis, but also allows for customization.

As EMA consistently learns how you treat each diagnosis, you will be provided with the plans most utilized. Your preferences will grow over time, helping to reduce clicks in the EHR. This will make it quicker and easier to complete your note as you focus on your patient's care. This patient presents with inadequately controlled asthma.
