TSC goes live with EMA on Oct. 23
VAIL, Colorado, October 24, 2017 – The Steadman Clinic in Vail – long known for utilizing cutting-edge technology in both its operating rooms and in the laboratories at its companion Steadman Philippon Research Institute – is taking a bold step in upgrading its electronic health record- keeping methods as well.
The Clinic went live Monday, Oct. 23, with EMA™, an electronic health records system designed and developed by Modernizing Medicine, a fast-growing health IT company based in Boca Raton, Fla.
EMA is specifically designed by and for orthopaedic surgeons. Its unique characteristics – with the orthopaedic medical terms and processes built directly into the software – will allow surgeons and technicians at The Steadman Clinic to input patients’ information, diagnosis, treatment plans and other necessary information directly onto a tablet during an examination and save much time and data input for the doctors and staff.
“The Steadman Clinic, by its very nature, has embraced the most innovative and effective technology in healthcare. We believe we’ve found the same technology in selecting Modernizing Medicine’s EMA as our new electronic health record (EHR) system,” said Steve Wyrsch, Vice President of Clinic Operations at The Steadman Clinic. “This program was designed by orthopedic surgeons for orthopedic surgeons and will provide a comprehensive tool for our doctors and staff to provide safe, efficient and thorough health care.
“We are very excited to enter our relationship with Modernizing Medicine,” continued Wyrsch. “One of the primary goals of The Steadman Clinic is find ways to maximize the service to our patients and our new EHR will be a major factor in helping us achieve that goal.”
Modernizing Medicine, founded in South Florida in 2010, has developed similar software and electronic health records systems for more than a half dozen other medical specialties as well, ranging from dermatology to pain management.
In addition to being developed by physicians, EMA is cloud-based and can be utilized by surgeons at The Steadman Clinic even when not in their offices. The system intuitively adapts to each individual doctor’s unique style of practice and remembers preferences. Doctors can collect structured data at the point of care by touching the intuitive user interface on EMA’s native iPad application. With examination notes and billing codes generated automatically, the rapid touch-and-swipe technology helps the Clinic staff with its speed and efficiency.
“The Modernizing Medicine team is excited about the relationship with The Steadman Clinic, and we are delighted that The Steadman Clinic understands the value of our orthopaedic specific EMR software and how it can benefit its providers and practice,” shares Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “We look forward to nurturing the relationship with TSC and serving the needs of the Clinic and its patients.”
