Modernizing Medicine's EMA™ EHR System


 

Modernizing Medicine's EMA™ EHR System offers a suite of products and services. EMA is a specialty-specific EHR for dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, urology, plastic surgery, rheumatology and pain medicine. The suite of solutions includes practice management and revenue cycle management, plus telehealth and pathology (dermatology clients). This iPad and cloud-based EHR system includes built-in, specialty-specific knowledge and an intelligent ICD-10 solution.

EMA was designed by physicians with structured data technology that handles the value-based payment modifier and enables quality reporting for Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Meaningful Use, MACRA and MIPS. The system can remember specific preferences of providers through an adaptive learning engine. Physicians are able to actively select commonly used diagnoses, prescriptions and consent forms.

The company does not respond to real problems with the EHR. I have reported billing issues where incorrect modifiers are used for billing with no resolution in OVER A YEAR! The software does not run properly on the most recent version of Firefox which is a browser required to be used by the company. When using this combination repeated delays occur when entering data with endless spinning wheels popping up. I reported the problem after spending months and $$ with my contracted IT people trying to figure out the issue (including swapping out my computer). A month later the issue is still "open" and unresolved.

Pros

It is more user friendly when working than other EHRs I have seen.

Cons

Multiple problems including incorrect coding of modifiers, and incompatibility with more recent versions of Firefox which is the internet platform needed to run the program. Customer service is completely unresponsive when you can get a hold of them and drop issues without resolution. Requires having a full time office person available to try and deal with the company.

Advice to Others

When it works it is probably better than most EHRs out there, but if you have problems you get no support.

Our office has been using EMA for about three years and the staff has no complaints. EMA is easy to navigate and helps our office run smoothly every day. One of the staff's favorite features is the Results Log which easily allows us to keep track of our high volume of patients and contact them easily with their pathology results. In addition, with each update, the software improves.

It was a little bit tricky to learn, just for the first couple of days. This EMR really does a great job of tracking, and trending. A lot of things we used to have to track manually are now done by this system.

Pros

This system tracks and trends.

Cons

Would like to see inventory management offered.

Advice to Others

Give this EMR a try. We have tried two others prior to this one. We are doing great so far!

I do really like this EMR--I think they have done a great job making it as seamless as possible. There are a few features that are lacking, and I wish that the training had been more hands on and comprehensive.

Pros

Ease of use
ipad functionality

Cons

audit trails are just so-so
training was a joke

Advice to Others

Pay extra to have trainers come and watch your current workflow prior to the workshop to see how you do things, otherwise during the training you are only learning their way and it's hard to get it communicated to work for your practice

Company is very responsive when I want to add a procedure. The will build it if on ask for it.
The product is specialty specific. The documents makes sense, look like a note I would dictate instead of a bunch of meaningless data. It codes my visits and procedures flawlessly. It is iPad based and I can finish my notes at home or document a patient call at home easily.

Although fairly intuitive it does have a learning curve. I feel this is true with any EMR.

Let them do an online demo for you. The strengths of the product are very quickly evident.

The software is well-designed across all platforms (ipad or web). Highly intuitive and highly customizable. The software learns the provider's most commonly used diagnosis codes and plans and puts them at the top for easy selection. Extremely accurate billing and coding conversion that integrates well with our Practice management system.

Likes Least

Nothing really, but would like to see more functionality on the scheduler.

Recommendations

The software is designed to help the providers record patient encounters with ease and accuracy in the amount of time that does not interfere with patient care. Despite the simplicity of the design, this software is an extremely powerful tool and does an amazing job at capturing every aspect of patient care.

Prescription refills are cumbersome to navigate. It is frustrating that they do not show in the patients chart if you ok a RF from the refill tab. Also there is no way to order tests without creating an office visit. It is often that our nursing staff is ordering tests for pts over the phone and we have no way of doing this in EMA, but must "old school" it and write out lab orders by hand.

Recommendations

Highly recommend having a staff member in your clinic when you go live with this for the first time. We had a very helpful person who was here for the first two days of going live and his help was key in not only a smooth transition from paper to EMA, but he had so many short cuts and helpful charting hints for us that I don't think we would have learned on our own.

The software was easy to implement and fairly easy to learn. The ability to learn in the "sandbox" before going live with real patients was extremely helpful. As with all new programs, there is a learning curve, but based on comments from physicians in our area regarding their EMR programs, Modernizing Medicine was the easiest to learn and the least problematic. The support you receive is excellent. There is always someone to talk to about any problems or questions you may have.

Likes Least

The main problem we have is we kept our practice management system, which required Modernizing Medicine to create a bridge that allows the demographics to transfer from one program to the other. It only takes a minute; however, when the clinic is very busy, that minute seems more like 5. As far as the vendor, I can't think of any negative.

Recommendations

Do your research to make sure the EMR fits your needs and has the ability to grow and advance for the future demands of medicine. Go to demonstrations and use the program of your top two choices. Take the information of a typical patient from your clinic to practice using the software of both systems. I think you will find that Modernizing Medicine is very easy to use and the data is easy to read. There isn't a perfect product, and we don't live in a perfect world. I think you will find Modernizing Medicine's team is always working to improve the program and prepare for the future.

EMA is easy to start-up and get rolling with. It doesn't require a lot of additional hardware purchasing. The initial training is thorough and flexible based on the client's schedule. EMA's support is prompt, and they have a user-friendly website which is continually updated and contains videos and tips to help in the learning process, including tips for meaningful use and PQRS along with videos regarding software updates.

In the year we have used EMA, there has been minor issues, which can be expected with any software program, but nothing major enough to list.

Recommendations

Do your homework and ask lots of questions. Converting to an EMR product can be stressful, and the more knowledgeable you are before you start will reward you later!

EMA for Ophthalmology offers my doctors and technicians an easy way to go through their exam. With the iPAD application, the virtual exam room is very easy to understand. With simple touch buttons, we are spending less time writing in charts and more time talking and caring for our patients. The support this system has to offer is great, whether it's calling in or doing an online request, response time is very quick, and you speak with someone who sounds like they really enjoy their job!

We have not really had a negative experience with this product. All of our requests have been cared for in a timely, professional manner.

Recommendations

Take advantage of all demos that are offered to you, and if you end up choosing EMA, definitely do the onsite health check. This helped my staff by having an EMA representative follow them around and help them find shortcuts through the exam.

No complaints. Modernizing Medicine has been proactive in preventing problems, and on the few occasions there was a problem, there was a quick fix and notification.

Don't buy any EMR until you check out EMA. Make sure you keep your EMR cloud-based.

A fairly nice EHR. Great summarization of encounter screen and a nice portal that allows patients to input some medical history that populates to the exam. The system organizes the data nicely. The opening screen gives great overviews & makes it easy to see previous encounters. The system is very intuitive & easy to use. The chief complaints are easy to input & the questions asked during HPI relate to the specific chief complaint only. This EHR system has 3 major flaws however: (1) It is unable to load all the previous exam findings (for example previous CD findings will not load) (2) Exam data is often deleted & has to be re-entered even when saved. For example if you are performing a post-op exam on the right eye & save your exam but then later go back & try to enter data for the left eye, the entire exam must be re-entered & repeated. The same is true if you start off doing a non-dilated exam & decide to dilate....then the entire anterior segment exam must be repeated. Most users avoid this by not entering data from the exam screen but instead doing it from the diagnosis/impression screen but of course this would create an incomplete record (it does not have retinal findings like CD included in the exam notes). If they could fix these 2 problems the software could be great!
