gMed Product Manager, Erin Dettrey, will lead a workshop focusing on best practices for quality improvement in GI through interoperability and in-depth analytics. Workshop attendees will be provided with real world examples of GI interoperability in local medical ecosystems and will be taught to leverage the growing trend toward interoperability and quality metrics management. The session will also feature recommendations for streamlining data collections and eliminating redundancies.

“We are looking forward to this year’s conference and sharing with attendees the capabilities of gMed’s software solutions that help physicians comply with the ever-changing healthcare environment,” said Michael Sherling, MD, MBA, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Modernizing Medicine. “The Digestive Health Centers’ conference is a major educational event for gMed and the whole gastroenterology world, and we look forward to sharing our experiences and to learning from other conference attendees.”
