Yes it does replace RAMP. The following is from the VA's fact sheet. You can view the full fact sheet here 


What is Appeals Modernization?

On August 23, 2017, the President signed the Veterans
Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act 
of 2017 (Appeals Modernization Act) into law, creating a new decision review process that allows VA to improve the delivery of benefits
and services to Veterans and their families. The new process gives Veterans choice and control, and all communications are written in plain language.

The new Appeals Modernization process allows Veterans
to seek faster resolution of their disagreement with a VA decision. If you receive an initial claim decision after February 2019 and you disagree, you can choose one of three new lanes to have your disagreement reviewed: as a supplemental claim, through a higher-level review, or by appealing directly to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals. The Appeals Modernization Act establishes a new decision review process for disagreements with VA decisions that is timely, transparent and fair.
