Patient Engagement Tools: To continue that connection outside the exam room, they offer powerful patient engagement tools for EMA® and gGastro® users. From an online patient portal dedicated to managing health to self-scheduling, automated appointment reminders, patient surveys and more, the company can help you keep patients involved in their care.

At Modernizing Medicine, its specialty-specific suites of products and services are designed to help you do exactly that—and more.

For instance, they can automatically generate notes, ICD-10 codes and printable patient education handouts while the patient is still in the room.

EMA dermatology software does exactly that, thanks to the innovative adaptive learning engine inside.
