Before using EMA, we were paper based. Our use of EMA became exponentially
more efficient once we partnered with [Inform Diagnostics]. We like the
seamless integration of path reports. So instead of needing to find a
paper report and scan it into EMA, the results integrate right into the chart.
The patient experience is very different since using the EMR. Instead of
running around when the patient arrives for suture removal—‘Where’s
their path? Is it pulled? Is it in their chart? Is it in a pile? Is it
in a folder?’—we simply now pull it up on the desktop. And
we get fewer phone calls from the [Inform Diagnostics] pathologists, because
the company that we used before would call us: ‘What was the morphology?
What did it look like? Is it a rash? Is this is lesion? What are you trying
to rule out?’ And now that we can send [our] notes to the lab, we
get fewer calls from [Inform Diagnostics] dermatopathologists.
If you’re not on EMA, you should get EMA—it’s wonderful.
And if you’re using EMA, you sure should be using [Inform Diagnostics].
I can’t express enough how helpful [Inform Diagnostics] has been to us.
