Modernizing Medicine and Miraca Life Sciences Partner to Create Enhanced EMR and Pathology Lab Integration

September 26, 2013

Modernizing Medicine, which created the Electronic Medical Assistant (EMA), a cloud-based, specialty-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system, and Miraca Life Sciences (MLS), a specialist in the development and commercialization of subspecialty expert anatomic pathology services, announced that they are partnering to develop an enhanced diagnostic data bridge.

As a result of this new partnership, EMA dermatologists and MLS pathologists will be able to share additional diagnostic information, which can help the pathologist create a more timely, informed and accurate analysis.

“This is truly the future of healthcare technology,” said Dr. Michael Sherling, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine, in a statement. “Structured data stored in the cloud with Modernizing Medicine's EMA EMR is the key to letting us share information with MLS. Working together, we intend to build an enhanced system to improve communications between dermatologists and pathologists which should ultimately help patients—improved patient care through technology is what we're all about.”

Modernizing Medicine's user-friendly EMA adapts to each healthcare provider's unique style of practice and integrates seamlessly into the practice's workflow, saving physicians and their staff time and increasing efficiencies, according to the company. EMA's cloud-based approach to collecting and storing patient information enables physicians to utilize the EMA Network to create, visualize and consume treatment data to better care for their patients.

“Partnering with Modernizing Medicine is a natural fit, since we share the same goals of using technology to accelerate positive change in healthcare,” said Richard Lash, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Miraca Life Sciences. “Miraca's existing structured data based on our consensus approach to diagnostic terminology and criteria will complement the rich clinical information provided by Modernizing Medicine, helping ensure the most definitive diagnoses for individual patients while creating a powerful database to help clinicians and pathologists improve patient outcomes.”

Available as a native iPad application or from any web-enabled Mac or PC, Modernizing Medicine's EMA is developed by physicians for the dermatology, ophthalmology, optometry, orthopedics and plastic and cosmetic surgery markets. This year, Software Advice named EMA the #1 tablet EHR and the company was listed on Forbes' annual ranking of America's Most Promising Companies.
