Panhandle Orthopaedics Experiences Streamlined Workflow and Time Savings With Modernizing Medicine’s Orthopedic Software Suite

Sponsored by Businesswire

Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader Modernizing
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
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
. “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:

  • Practice
    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
    source tracking.
  • Patient
    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.
  • MIPS
    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.
  • Analytics:
    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.
  • Revenue
    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.
  • WebPT
    : 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.
  • PACS
    : 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.
