A health IT company that generated some buzz when we wrote about its touch-based EMR-and-then-some for dermatologists, ophthalmologists and optometrists is now launching a similar product for the U.S.’s 6,000 plastic surgeons.
Modernizing Medicine’s Electronic Medical Assistant is a cloud-based electronic medical record system with additional capabilities customized for small and midsized specialty practices.
It automates certain processes for doctors like writing prescriptions, filling out lab request forms, coding, dictating notes and billing in an effort to save doctors time.
“Many of the EMRs available on the market today are cookie cutter in that they don’t cater to specific specialties and don’t learn the way a specific physician practices,” said Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine.
EMA Plastic Surgery was built with an adaptive learning system that observes and adjusts to how each doctor uses it. A high-resolution, 3-D anatomic body illustration with more than 15,000 touch-points allows plastic surgeons to track symptoms, diagnoses and areas of concern, and a library of more than 2,000 symptoms, diagnoses and billing codes aims to simplify the documentation process.
The company, located in Boca Raton, Florida, has about 90 employees including several doctors who work with coders to develop the products.
