About ModMed

ModMed, also known as Modernizing Medicine, offers an integrated telehealth platform within its specialty-specific EHR system, EMA. Called modmed Telehealth, it offers synchronous audio and video telemedicine capabilities for specialty physicians as well as a store-and-forward option for dermatology practices. Telemedicine plays a vital role in helping prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus to allow healthcare professionals to continue to treat patients remotely while reducing the risk of transmission. Real-time audio and video capabilities can help providers reach vulnerable patient populations conveniently, screen patients whether offices are open or closed, see patients prior to renewing prescriptions, accommodate existing clinical workflows and minimize risk of exposure for patients and staff. PocketPatient is the patient-facing mobile app for telehealth. Patients can use the app on their Apple or Android devices or log into their web patient portal for virtual visits. Additionally, the EMA EHR system has been populated with medical content for COVID-19 related illnesses, and additional content will be added as interim CDC guidelines are updated.

An EMR that puts the physician and patient first

Pros

Specialty-specific EMR built that is easy to use and intuitive. Assists with proper ICD-10 coding and use of modifiers. Additional modules for Pathology, Practice Management/Billing, Telemedicine, and MIPS reporting are available as integrated features. A proactive and responsive company that takes provider issues and input seriously.

Cons

The system is designed around an optimal workflow. As with any EMR, office workflows will need to be updated in order to align with the system's capabilities.

Modernizing Medicine

Overall our experience has been positive with ModMed. I think part of any new EMR is that they do so much it takes time to really incorporate it all into your practice. So on that end, I think even the things we currently like the least will improve.

Pros

The software is a whole suite with EMR and practice Management. The two work together nicely. It allows easy scheduling of providers and linking of the visits. It helps drive the physician through their note while ensuring that they are coding their visits properly. It also helps with MIPS and other programs. They also do regular updates to improve the software, which is great.

Cons

The things that are the least liked are the inability to really fine tune the scheduling. Even though you limit the type of appointments per location or provider, it still providers the schedulers with all options even if they are not able to use them. Also, creating the notes can be a bit cumbersome. I think some more "customization" would be helpful.

Reasons for Choosing ModMed

Former software was aging out and the providers were ready for a switch.

It was specific to our specialty. Many EMR's are built for General or Hospital practice, which does not apply to many specialties.

The schedule is development's redheaded stepchild

EMA is robust, and the PM system has come a long way in the past few years. Medical documentation is vital (EMA), and the billing portion of the PM has understandably received more attention and more advancement than the scheduling portion. Hence my title.

Pros

Integration with Relatient for appointment confirmations

Cons

The list is long, but here are a few highlights: -Desperately need permissions granularity by user and by appt category (preference group). -When an account is inactivated users are still able to set appts. Not ok. Inactivating an account should disable it from a scheduling perspective. -As an administrator I'm spending way too much time changing the templating daily. The templating is simplistic and clunky as far as edits to existing template. Needs a delete option of "from today's date forward" and not just "delete all" or "delete this single one". -The schedule block feature should be granular; not all users should have that permission. I also need to be able to make recurring blocks, to be able to choose the date in the block window and not have to go to that date in order to block (which if you're in a week view is a PIA), and need to be able to choose a date range. -The schedule grid was not optimally designed for a multi-provider practice that wants to "view all providers here today". Each time I go to the schedule I have to reload every doc. Would like to be able to choose a default schedule that could be user preset that would load with some sort of default button, or at the very least have the system keep the memory sticky of the way I had it loaded when I left that screen. Way too many clicks right now. -Canceling appointments requires too many clicks. -Need a drag and drop feature from one provider's schedule to another.

EMA is great, customer service is bad

My overall experience has been bad because I had a bad implementation of new features (PM lite) followed by enforcement of a contract that extended my end date with them even though we cancelled the PM lite. They could have just reverted to my old contract after cancelling the PM lite implementation and I would have been happy.

Pros

user friendly emr system which saved time in clinic

Cons

The software for EMR called EMA is good and user friendly, saves time in clinic. Implementing new features is a nightmare of discovery calls, introductory calls, unusually long timelines for deploying new services. The customer service is terrible which is surprising considering it is priced at a premium level.

Best EHR I’ve used!

Our entire practice runs on ModMed EHR and practice management. This is the best business move I have ever made.

Pros

EMA (Electronic Medical Assistant) by Modernizing Medicine increased my productivity by 3-fold. That is to say, with this product I can see 3X more patients than I could without it. Charting is meticulous and fast, and visits are completed by the time the patient leaves. Frequently updated to give requested features — updates occur about every 2-6 weeks. Tech support is excellent and responsive. Requests for enhancements are responded to rapidly.

Cons

Steep learning curve when starting makes it seem intimidating, but after a few days of use, it becomes automatic. Frequent updates sometimes introduce coding errors that need correction

Reasons for Choosing ModMed

Reasons for Switching to ModMed

Demo revealed that it is designed by smart, efficient end users, not coders.
