Boca Raton, Fla., December 17, 2018 — Modernizing Medicine® today announced its orthopedic electronic health record (EHR), EMA™, delivers one of the best orthopedic workflows for the specialty, according to the KLAS Orthopedic EMR 2018 report. Modernizing Medicine’s EHR system was named a top performer for overall satisfaction and earned above average scores in key performance categories researched by KLAS.
According to KLAS, EMA was highly rated for overall user satisfaction. Customers shared with KLAS that EMA’s cloud-based solution is immensely helpful in allowing clinicians to document while also maintaining meaningful interactions with patients. Overall, KLAS found that Modernizing Medicine’s customers appreciate that EMA is tailored specifically to orthopedic groups, and users reported that EMA’s specialization allows them to quickly and efficiently complete their documentation.
“As a practicing orthopedic surgeon who also develops an orthopedic EMR system, I have always felt confident that we deliver a truly unique solution for orthopedic surgeons, and the results of the KLAS Orthopedic Specialty Report further support that,” said Dr. Jason Weisstein, medical director of orthopedics at Modernizing Medicine. “Heading into 2019, our team will continue to build technology designed to reduce physician burnout, improve efficiencies and support customer success.”
Practices of any size can use EMA, and in fact Ortho Florida, a collaboration of orthopedic practices, chose EMA to help facilitate growth. “While we don’t require our providers to implement EMA, we strongly suggest it to all of them due to the benefits they could experience,” shares Dane Trask, CEO of Ortho Florida. “We see a measurable difference in the performance, efficiencies and profitability of those practices who use EMA as compared to those using other products.”
Built on structured data by practicing orthopedic surgeons, EMA intuitively adapts to each provider’s unique style of practice. The mobile, touch and cloud-based solution was designed to help orthopedic surgeons move through exams efficiently. In addition to EMA, the comprehensive modmed® Orthopedics suite includes orthopedic practice management, revenue cycle management (RCM), a MIPS intelligence platform*, analytics and modmed® Kiosk. To support improved orthopedic care delivery and outcomes, the orthopedic EMR also integrates with Ambra Health, the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite for advanced PACS connectivity, and WebPT, the leading rehab therapy software platform.

Given the growing utilization of orthopedic treatments, it is more important than ever for orthopedic practices to have EMR technology that supports clinician, patient and financial success. However, KLAS’ Arch Collaborative research—which has collected EMR usability surveys from over 65,000 clinicians—indicates that orthopedists are some of the most dissatisfied EMR users. These users understand that just because an EMR is highly usable in other settings doesn’t mean it is the right fit for orthopedics. For this study KLAS interviewed 120 healthcare professionals at both hospitals and standalone orthopedic practices, including orthopedists, directors, CMIOs, practice administrators, nurses and others.
