Modernizing Medicine Gastroenterology Adds Electronic Clinical Lab Orders and Enhanced Mobile Capabilities to gGastro EHR

May 16, 2019

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2019--

Specialty-specific healthcare information technology leader  Modernizing Medicine® Gastroenterology, formerly gMed®, announced a bi-directional clinical lab connection within the company’s gastro-specific suite of solutions, gGastro®, through its collaboration with Change Healthcare. During the annual Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) taking place in San Diego, Calif., from May 18 – 21, 2019, the new capability will be highlighted at Modernizing Medicine Gastroenterology’s booth #1142.

Change Healthcare’s Exchange Orders and Results solution allows physicians to electronically submit clinical lab orders from within gGastro, as well as receive the results directly from connected labs. The streamlined workflow provides Modernizing Medicine customers with a more efficient way to communicate with laboratories, hospitals, and physician practices, and helps providers to seamlessly process and bill orders.

The company will also showcase its enhanced gGastro® Mobile EHR app solution. Compatible with iOS and Android, gGastro Mobile allows providers to access schedules, view upcoming procedures, review medication history, patient data and more right from their smartphone. The new tasking feature gives providers access to easily reply, view and complete tasks from the convenience of their phone, and they can now sign into the app with biometric verification.

“Our physicians have greatly benefited from the convenience and flexibility that gGastro Mobile offers. One of our physicians was working from home when his internet went out. By using the mobile EHR, he was able to easily access his patients’ records via the app and avoided the 30-minute drive back to the office,” shared Tasha Cieslak*, practice manager at  The Gastro Clinic.

During DDW, Dr. Julie Servoss, medical director of gastroenterology at Modernizing Medicine will present, “The Future of Interoperability: Modernizing Medicine Burning Bright with FHIR,” where she will discuss an update on ONC’s proposed rule, how it could change the landscape of interoperability, and Modernizing Medicine Gastroenterology’s strategy for helping gGastro users integrate with other EHRs, hospitals and patient engagement health apps. Dr. Servoss’ presentation will take place at the Knowledge Hub Exhibitor Showcase located on the main aisle on Sunday, May 19 from 10:15 – 10:30 am PT.

“I look forward to joining my colleagues at this year’s DDW conference and to present on the ONC’s FHIR rule and its impact on the health IT community,” said Dr. Servoss. “The DDW conference brings together the best and the brightest in our field, and I’m excited for all the conversations and connections we’ll make during the show.”
