|Who is Modernizing Medicine?|
|Founded by Dan Cane, a successful techentrepreneur, and Michael Sherling, MD, MBA, to improve healthcare outcomes and save physicians time, Modernizing Medicine launched its flagship Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMATM), the physician-developed EHR system for dermatologists. The intuitive, cloud-based system and native iPad application quickly captured more than 30 percent of the dermatology EHR market in less than five years.
Building on this success, the company expanded by developing EHR systems for gastroenterology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, plastic surgery and urology — employing physicians from those specialties to help code their medical knowledge into EMA.
Today, Modernizing Medicine, located in Boca Raton, Fla. only 30 miles from the gMed headquarters, is far more than an EHR company. Modernizing Medicine and its subsidiaries also provide specialty- specific billing, revenue cycle management, inventory management and other services. The cloud, mobile, and data-driven platform EMA was created on uniquely positions the company and its customers for the future of healthcare focused on quality of care.
By joining forces, there will be over 430 dedicated professionals focused on the needs of the specialty markets.
Dan and Dr. Sherling’s vision has spread organization-wide, creating an environment of innovation that’s catapulted Modernizing Medicine to award-winning status as a Forbes’ Most Promising Company, a Red Herring Award winner and the number one best company to work for in South Florida.
