NEW ORLEANS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–At this year’s AAO event in New Orleans, health technology leader ModMed showcases the latest innovations in its award-winning and widely used ModMed® Ophthalmology software suite designed to help physicians and improve patient experience at scale.

“We are continually improving our platform with new features and are thrilled to have thousands of providers rely on our all-in-one system which has enabled over 100 million patient encounters,” said Dr. Michael Rivers , director of ophthalmology at ModMed.

As the operating environment for ophthalmologists becomes more challenging, a growing number of eye care professionals are turning to ModMed to create smoother, faster workflows and give providers more time to focus on meeting new requests.

“Before EMA®, physicians spent 30 to 120 minutes documenting after clinic hours,” said Trish Barker*, chief operating officer, Florida Eye Associates. “Having all-in-one ophthalmology software provides transparency and easy access to the information we need to get the job done. EMA has increased our efficiency by allowing our physicians to quickly view and document patient encounters. The PM system has streamlined our invoicing process, speeding up payment times. »

Eli Tallman, Administrator of Retina & Vitreous of Texas, said, “The all-in-one system streamlines check-in and payment and is much easier to use than our previous platform. Everything we need – from insurance eligibility to balances due – is there and we don’t have to click through multiple screens. It’s a huge time saver.”

Dr. Rivers continued, “Eyecare professionals must manage incredible pressures in the marketplace with increased patient demand from aging baby boomers, regulatory constraints, market consolidation and staffing shortages. . ModMed helps address and alleviate some of these pressures by seamlessly connecting front office, clinical care and back office operations.

At the AAO event, ModMed will showcase its latest advances in clinical workflow efficiency:

  • Enable providers to perform a streamlined eye exam with fewer clicks or taps, designed to reduce documentation time.

  • A new intravitreal injection diary providing vitreoretinal surgeons with quick access to a list of a patient’s previous injections, intervals, and key exam items.

  • Support for patients submitting their own primary health issue through the patient portal or ModMed® Kiosk allowing doctors to consult before the start of the appointment.

  • Ability for staff to queue a kit of forms for processing rather than processing each form individually, designed to increase the efficiency of surgical planners.
