Modernizing Medicine Showcases New Mobile EMA Ophthalmology EMR System at ASCRS


Modernizing Medicine announced it will showcase the latest advancements with EMA Ophthalmology at this year’s American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery meeting in San Diego. Ophthalmologists can demo the recently upgraded EMR system offered by Modernizing Medicine and see how it easily fits into the ophthalmology practice workflow.

The ophthalmology software has recently undergone upgrades, including enhanced access to patient history and the ability for physicians to opt-out of plans that do not pertain to their subspecialty. This provides ophthalmologists with a more tailored and efficient system, according to a company news release.

In addition to being easily accessible through a desktop computer, EMA Ophthalmology is available as a native iPad application and can be accessed via the Internet virtually anywhere and anytime, giving providers the freedom they need to efficiently run their practices. Now, native to both Android and iOS, PocketEMA provides mobile smartphone access to a patient’s chart and past notes, review of allergies and current medications, plus the ability to view additional documents like imaging reports.

Modernizing Medicine’s physicians have built EMA Ophthalmology with automated and advanced ICD-10 coding as well as Meaningful Use and PQRS reporting capabilities. In accordance with the recent moves by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, EMA Ophthalmology’s structured data makes it simpler for physicians to document and keep track of his/her patients’ progress, creating a smoother transition to quality-of-care reporting and outcome-based reimbursements.

“The advancements we have made with EMA Ophthalmology will further support ophthalmologists of all subspecialties,” Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine, said in the news release. “As we continue to innovate the EMA platform, our clients help us to identify what they are looking for with their EMR system that will allow them to practice ophthalmologic medicine more accurately and efficiently.”

“The attention to detail as far as coding is beyond anything I have ever seen. EMA Ophthalmology really tracks what you are doing and it is basically auditing you every second that you’re on it,” Don Abrams, MD, Chairman of Ophthalmology at the LifeBridge Health Krieger Eye Institute at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, said in the news release. “I had been under coding for years on paper for fear of not having documentation to justify higher coding. With EMA Ophthalmology, it’s amazing how it codes automatically and all of the data points are positioned with the appropriate number of diagnoses. I’m really looking forward to seeing how EMA Ophthalmology works with ICD-10 and I anticipate it to be an effortless transition.”

Members of the EMA Ophthalmology team will provide demonstrations at Modernizing Medicine booth #2617 during the Annual ASCRS meeting in San Diego taking place from Saturday, April 18 – Monday, April 20.
