Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader Modernizing
Medicine today announced that they will showcase the latest
technological advancements in its modmed®
Orthopedics suite at the American
Association of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) Annual Meeting.
Attendees can visit Modernizing Medicine and meet with current clients,
including Panhandle Orthopaedics, at booth #600 during the show, to be
held from May 5-7, in Nashville, Tenn.
At AAOE, orthopedic executives from across the country gather to discuss
the latest trends in the industry and strategies for streamlining and
automating all aspects of practice management. Among these include the
latest developments in orthopedic electronic medical records (EMR) such
as Modernizing Medicine’s flagship solution, EMA™.
Modernizing Medicine customers such as Panhandle
Orthopaedics use EMA and Practice Management to help improve front
office and patient intake processes and streamline practice workflows.
Prior to adopting EMA, Panhandle Orthopaedics was using multiple vendors
for its EMR, practice management, analytics, coding and transcription
services. By switching to the modmed Orthopedics suite of products, the
practice has streamlined workflows and improved efficiencies using a
single, all-in-one solution.
“We use the modmed Orthopedics suite to help make our internal processes
more efficient,” says Nicole Mayo*, daily operations administrator at Panhandle
Orthopaedics. “We evaluated our entire clinical workflow, and we
eliminated many manual processes and saved administrative time for our
staff to dedicate to better patient care. It’s made a big difference for
us and we are much more efficient with our time from the front desk, to
the workers’ compensation team, to the clinical providers.”
The Modernizing Medicine team will showcase the latest enhancements to
EMA at AAOE and will provide demonstrations of other products and
services. In addition to EMA, the modmed Orthopedics suite includes:
Management: now with features to help improve patient management
and shorten the revenue cycle including appointment wait list, drag
and drop appointments, custom claim edits, OCR scanning and referral
Engagement tools: now with Patient Reminders, Patient Surveys,
patient portal and the modmed® Kiosk. These patient experience tools
can help reduce no-shows, speed up check in and enable patients to
actively manage their care by viewing statements and requesting
appointments and prescription refills.
Intelligence platform**: EMA’s built in Merit-based Incentive
Payment System (MIPS) solution helps track estimated Composite Scores
and has robust analytics and benchmarking reports to ease data
collection and submission.
an integrated platform that allows practices to turn data into
clinical, financial and operational insights, from enterprise to the
provider level. Orthopedic analytics can help manage opioid patients,
identify which physical therapists refer the most patients, analyze
claims and denials by payor and more.
Cycle Management: a comprehensive medical billing service that
supports the revenue cycle management process from before patients are
seen until after their balances are paid, including claims and denial
management and financial health monitoring.
interface: the robust interface between the WebPT
EMR and EMA allows multiple members of a patient’s orthopedic care
team – from the surgeon to the physical therapist – to share
information, improving the care continuum.
interface: this automated bi-directional interface provides
connectivity between EMA and almost any PACS system. Orthopedic
practices can experience faster turnaround of studies, eliminate
reliance on CDs or DVDs for image sharing, reduce manual effort and
provide a better overall experience for patients.
