How easy is gTelehealth to use? Once signed up, it’s as simple as:

- Clicking “Start a Session” and receiving a link to share with the patient via email or text.
- Having the patient click the link to “Join the Video Chatroom” (no login or download required) in the email or text invitation they receive.
More Ways To Engage Your Patients

- Patient identification through phone numbers associated with their profile
- Patient or staff-initiated text messages
- Cloud hosted, offering you access from almost anywhere you have an internet connection
- Configurable to restrict user access to certain patients
- Notifications for newly received messages and messages unread by patients
- Out-of-office messaging options
Say Goodbye to Paper Intake Forms
Check-in, checkout and discharge just got a lot easier with gKiosk, our electronic patient check-in app that integrates seamlessly with our gGastro® EHR and gPM™ practice management system as part of the gGastro suite. With just a few taps on the iPad, gKiosk collects data you need and stores it in the patient’s electronic medical record. Imagine—consent forms, demographics, clinical data, signatures and more, all filled out by the patient when they walk in and before they leave. No need to enter the data manually; it’s already there for staff to easily review and accept. And depending on how your gastroenterology practice is set up, you may be able to be up and running with gKiosk in as little as two weeks.
Your patients will enjoy saving time and seeing that you’re on the leading edge of healthcare. And with less paper piling up, your front office will love it, too. Some benefits may include:
- Speed up check-in, checkout and discharge
- Improve patient and staff satisfaction
- Allow patients to complete certain quality measures
- Increase staff productivity by eliminating excessive data entry
- Get one step closer to a completely paperless office
- Streamline patient flow while reducing data entry errors
- Be more environmentally friendly
