The company was also rated #1 for Solo/Single Practice (Surgical Specialties).

This is the eighth consecutive year that gGastro™, the EHR system developed by gMed®, a Modernizing Medicine company, has been named the #1 gastroenterology EHR system by Black Book. gGastro is the only gastroenterology-specific EHR system to ever be ranked #1 since Black Book started polling for the Top EHR Lists in 2010.

“There is no question that EMA saves me time,” shared Daniel T. Stein, MD, of Coastline Orthopedic Associates, located in Fountain Valley, Calif. “I can see twenty new patients and be done one hour to an hour and a half earlier than in the past. If I consider my time saved, that equals to saving over $125,000 per year.”
