Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine® will showcase the latest advancements to its innovative suite of products, modmed® Ophthalmology, as well as general availability for a new product offering, modmed ASC, at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting (AAO). AAO 2019 will take place from October 12 – 15 in San Francisco, California, where attendees will have the opportunity to visit with Modernizing Medicine, as well as demo the company’s leading ophthalmology software suite at booth #5261.
Every year, AAO welcomes ophthalmologists from comprehensive and specialized practices to discuss the latest surgical techniques, treatments and innovations in the space. Among these innovations is Modernizing Medicine’s ASC solution which offers an advanced, intuitive electronic reports solution for outpatient ophthalmology surgical procedures. modmed ASC works in combination with the company’s all-in-one ophthalmology EHR, EMA®, to further streamline and enhance interoperability between ophthalmology practices and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs).
Modernizing Medicine customers like Empire Surgery Center utilize EMA, Practice Management and modmed ASC to improve workflow and enhance communication between its ASC and the organization’s ophthalmology practice, Empire Eye and Laser Center. They previously used a paper-based solution at the ASC, and since switching to Modernizing Medicine’s ASC electronic reports the organization has seen significant workflow improvements. The ASC solution allows for operational details including: time-stamping signatures on pre-surgical clearances, surgery orders, and discharges; making pre-surgical chart checks; and direct messaging and faxing of surgery documents to easily and electronically share information between locations.
CEO of Empire Management Group and Corporate Controller of Empire Surgery Center and Empire Eye and Laser Center, Jennifer Stambook, stated, “Selecting Modernizing Medicine’s suite of EHR and Practice Management software for our clinical practice and modmed ASC for our surgery center has been ground breaking for us as an organization. The ability to coordinate all of our practice and ASC tasks through the software has given us the ability to become more efficient and reduce time, energy and resources spent. We are greatly looking forward to continued opportunities within Modernizing Medicine to fully streamline all of our patient care as well as surgical and administrative activities.”
Empire Surgery Center has also improved efficiency and procedure documentation specificity since implementing modmed ASC. For example, the facility no longer utilizes the same standard chart for a cataract extraction with IOL insertion that it would utilize for blepharoplasty procedures—each procedure has its own customized chart, improving accuracy and helping to speed documentation time. modmed ASC also has built-in quality assurance and performance improvement capabilities, which can help ophthalmology practices identify disruptions in performance and workflow.
Jennifer Stambook*, CEO of Empire Management Group and Corporate Controller of Empire Surgery Center and Empire Eye and Laser Center, will be at Modernizing Medicine’s booth #5261 on Saturday, October 12 from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm and again on Sunday, October 13 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm.
Along with its integrated, all-in-one EHR solution, Modernizing Medicine will highlight modmed® BOOST, an all-in-one solution that combines the power of practice management technology with business services to address the operational and financial aspects of specialty practices.
