Electronic Medical Assistant Software


 

Modernizing Medicine offers a suite of products and services including EMA™. EMA is a specialty-specific EHR system 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 core differentiating factors of EMA include a suite of products and services, specialty-specific features, time savings, billing and coding, cloud-based functionality, automated outputs, no templates or macros restrictions, and data-driven productivity.

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.

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

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.

Likes Least

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!

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

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

Modernizing Medicine has delivered everything they promised. They were also very accommodating on pricing when we had a dermatologist give her notice two weeks after we signed our contract. The system is user-friendly and keeps up with all the constant changes from Medicare regarding billing.

Likes Least

I have no complaints about the software. The contract was crazy long and involved and there was no room for negotiation. This made me nervous, but as I said, Modernizing Medicine has been a pleasure to work with and have been nothing but fair with every interaction.

Recommendations

Beware of systems that you have to customize to your preferences. Modernizing Medicine's EMA has set templates based on what the majority of dermatology need and use. Although you can customize it, you certainly don't need to.

We are branching out to become a multi-specialty practice. We are able to use EMA in all of the areas of the practice except primary care. It would have been great to not have separate EHR systems for the entire practice.

EMA was the second EHR that we tried in our office. After the first very painful experience, we were very nervous about starting with a new EHR program. The implementation and training process was great!

The product itself is directly related to the field that I am in. It does not have the extra information that is not relevant to my practice. They are also far ahead of others when it comes to ICD-10 coding. The vendor is very receptive to issues and possible need for changes.

Likes Least

What I like least is that they seem to still have a few bugs to work out with details in the notes. If someone is not into the minutiae, it would not bother them. They also do not yet have a schedule component that integrates with my practice management system.

Recommendations

See if it is compatible with your practice management system. Are you looking for a cloud based system or a server based system? Lastly, make sure that an EMR system fits your workflow.

Too time-consuming. If it would remember your preferences (without you having to click through so many other options), it would be nice. Because it offers so many options based on what different surgeons use, it's hard to wade through the stuff you don't use. It takes too much time.

Recommendations

It would be nice to see a comparison of how long it takes to dictate a note using the different products.
