BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Modernizing Medicine, the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant™ (EMA), a cloud-based specialty-specific EMR application, announced today that it has been recognized as a recipient of a 2012 Florida Companies to Watch(SM) award, an honor presented by the Florida Economic Gardening Institute (GrowFL) at the University of Central Florida.
Florida Companies to Watch is an awards program that celebrates privately held second-stage companies headquartered in the state. This year, fifty Florida companies, including Modernizing Medicine, were selected for demonstrating the intent and capacity to grow based on employee or sales growth, exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, sustainable competitive advantage, outstanding corporate culture, inspired community giving and other notable strengths.
As a second-stage company, Modernizing Medicine has demonstrated substantial growth in both company size and sales. This year, Modernizing Medicine hired 50 new employees and gained significant sales traction within the dermatology, ophthalmology and optometry markets in the United States. Since its launch two years ago, the company has captured more than 10% of the dermatology market, and its EMA applications are currently used by over 550 specialty-specific healthcare practices across the country.
"We're honored to be recognized among some of the top up and coming local companies by the Florida Economic Gardening Institute," said Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. "We've made it our mission to harness technology to change the face of healthcare with EMA, and it feels great to be able to help strengthen the local economy in the process."
Modernizing Medicine's user-friendly EMA adapts to each healthcare provider's unique style of practice, and integrates seamlessly into the practice's workflow. EMA saves physicians and their staff time as it comes with built-in medical knowledge, features touch-based entry and has the ability to generate medical history in a matter of seconds, as well as notes, billing, prescriptions, patient handouts and encounter forms.
