Modernizing Medicine and Miraca Life Sciences to Launch EMA Urology
May 13 14
Modernizing Medicine and Miraca Life Sciences announced plans to launch EMA Urology, an electronic medical records system designed for urologists. With specialty-specific systems for dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, gastroenterology and plastic and cosmetic surgery, Modernizing Medicine will expand its product portfolio with a solution for the underserved urology market that lacks a template-free, cloud solution with EMA's features. Like the company's other EMA systems, EMA Urology will be available as a native iPad application with the same convenient touch-screen functionality that frees providers from tedious typing. Combined with a seamless integration with Miraca Life Sciences, providers will enjoy having additional time saved to focus on patient care. Also available from any web-enabled Mac or PC, EMA Urology will have the EMA adaptive learning engine that adjusts to a doctor's unique style of practice and remembers preferences. Free of templates, Modernizing Medicine's electronic health records system eliminates cloning and documents each individual patient exam uniquely. EMA also integrates with hundreds of practice management solutions.
