gMed Announces Mobile Capabilities and Offers DICOM Compatibility in Gastroenterology EMR
Award-winning gastroenterology EHR company also announces upcoming new brand identity
BOCA RATON, Fla. — May 31, 2018 — gMed®, a Modernizing Medicine® company, today announces the upcoming gGastro™ Mobile software to expand the mobile capabilities of the gGastro™ EHR system. The company also plans to provide enhanced image sharing capabilities for hospital information systems via DICOM® (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). gMed will showcase the latest capabilities of the full gGastro™ Suite at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) in Washington, D.C., from June 2-5, 2018.
A mobile system can streamline quality care and save time, so gMed is developing gGastro Mobile for both iOS and Android smartphones. Physicians could use the first release of the product to login, view their schedule, search and view a patient, and see patient details including demographics and patient summary (medications, allergies, etc.). gGastro Mobile will complement gMed’s existing mobile capabilities including:
- gKiosk™ which streamlines patient check-in, checkout and discharge with an iPad in the office or ambulatory surgery center (ASC)
- gPortal™, an online patient engagement tool that they can use in their home, work or elsewhere
- gReminder™, a patient reminder system for patients to confirm appointments
The gGastro Suite also includes the gGastro gastroenterology EMR, the gPM™ practice management system, Revenue Cycle Management, gInsights™ analytics platform, Endoscopy Report Writer (ERW) and more.
gMed made the decision to offer DICOM image sharing capabilities to help gastroenterologists who use the ERW share images across HIT systems. Used in hospitals worldwide, DICOM improves the interoperability of systems used to produce, store, display, send, query, process, retrieve, print medical images and derive structured documents, as well as manage the related workflow.
The company also announces that gMed will be rebranded as Modernizing Medicine® Gastroenterology later this year. In addition, the gGastro Suite will become modmed® Gastroenterology and the Endoscopy Report Writer will be called gGastro® ERW. While the industry may see new product and service names and new innovations, the same team and award-winning technology platform remains dedicated to the success of its gastroenterology customers.
“Over the past few years, Modernizing Medicine has worked diligently to advance its industry-leading gastroenterology EMR software that our users have appreciated for 20 years. The additional mobile functionality is intended to allow physicians to be more responsive to patients thereby providing better care. And since many gastroenterologists travel between the office, endoscopy suite and hospital each day, the mobile platform should allow them to manage practice and patient workflow with greater efficiency,” shared Julie C. Servoss, MD, MPH, medical director of gastroenterology at Modernizing Medicine.
gGastro is the only gastroenterology EHR system to ever be ranked #1 since Black Book started polling for the Top EHR Lists in 2010, and recently Black Book named it the #1 gastroenterology EHR system for the eighth consecutive year.
To see how these solutions can benefit gastroenterology practices, ASCs and hospitals, visit gMed’s booth #2536 at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) from June 2-5, 2018, in Washington, D.C.
