Modernizing Medicine Showcases Award-Winning Ophthalmology EHR and Suite of Solutions at ASCRS ASOA 2019 Annual Meeting

Sponsored by Businesswire

Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader Modernizing
will showcase its modmed®
suite of solutions at the American
Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Annual Meeting 2019 (ASCRS)

from May 4 – May 6, 2019 during exhibiting hours in San Diego, Calif. At
the show, Modernizing Medicine will display its ophthalmology software
solutions, which are designed to help increase practice and ambulatory
surgical center (ASC) efficiencies while also working to improve patient

Selecting an ophthalmology electronic health record (EHR) system is an
important decision and the level of specialty-specific capabilities
available out-of-the-box varies greatly. Modernizing Medicine’s EMA™ EHR
system comes with ophthalmology diagnoses, procedures, and treatment
plans built in. Modernizing Medicine also offers an Image Management
solution that can be accessed from within a patient’s chart.

“I’m looking forward to speaking with like-minded colleagues about how
to select the best technology solutions for their practice. As an
ophthalmologist, I understand the impact technology can have on practice
performance and know how important selecting an EHR system is,” said Dr.
Michael Rivers, director of EMA ophthalmology at Modernizing Medicine.
“Physician burnout continues to be an issue for ophthalmologists, and it
is critical to understand how technology can be used to benefit patients
while improving and streamlining practice operations. Our ophthalmology
EHR, EMA, is easy-to-use and adapts to the workflow of your practice.”

At ASCRS ASOA 2019 Annual Meeting, Modernizing Medicine will not only
showcase the various solutions available within modmed Ophthalmology,
but a current user will also provide insight into how the solution works
at their own practice.

“After switching to EMA and Practice Management, the time we spend
reporting on each patient has decreased significantly and our providers
are able to spend more time with their patients during appointments,”
said Linda Gallo*, practice administrator at
Galiani Ophthalmology Associates
. “In addition, our patients are
engaged in their own care. They benefit from appointment reminders and
mobile access to personalized care instructions. This has improved the
practice’s credibility and the patients’ overall experiences.”

Within Modernizing Medicine’s modmed Ophthalmology suite,
ophthalmologists have access to a variety of solutions including:

  • EMA
    – a cloud-based ophthalmology EHR system developed by practicing
    ophthalmologists and ranked as the #1
    ophthalmology EMR
    by Black Book™ in 2019. The recently released
    advanced mode eye exam offers a new simplified workflow for exams
    along with a note-style layout for more easily documenting patient
    encounters. The native iPad application also includes built-in medical
    wisdom for ophthalmic subspecialties, including cataract and
    refractive, glaucoma, retina, oculoplastics and pediatrics. EMA was
    built with the ophthalmologist’s workflow in mind, helping them move
    through exams efficiently.
  • Built in Merit-based
    Incentive Payment System (MIPS)
    ** composite score reporting and
    data submission.
  • Image Management – centralized access to patient records and
    diagnostic images from EMA.
  • Patient
    tools – provide the ability send Appointment Reminders
    as well as Patient Surveys. This also includes the modmed® Kiosk
    designed to enable patients to perform self-service tasks at the
    doctor’s office.
  • Practice
    – a multi-specialty practice management system that is
    integrated with EMA and provides facility billing functionalities.
  • Analytics
    – a visual platform that allows practices to turn data into insights,
    from enterprise to a patient level, to help improve clinical,
    financial and operational performance.
  • ASC Solution – The ambulatory surgical center electronic records and
    operative report adapts to current ASC workflows, to help expedite
    notes and reporting for outpatient procedures
