What are nine keys to achieving greatness for your gastroenterology practice? A Gastroenterology EHR is Part of the Answer.
There’s typically always room for improvement when it comes to multiple aspects of life, and this holds true as it relates to the clinical, business and financial facets of your gastroenterology practice, too. Unlocking the keys to improve those three crucial functions can seem challenging if you don’t know exactly where to start.
In this guidebook, 9 Keys to Gastro Greatness, we will help you uncover crucial elements to unlock improved practice efficiency along with the functionalities you should look for in a gastroenterology electronic health record (EHR) system and endowriter.
The Clinical Keys
So how do you improve the clinical aspects of your practice? Where does technology, specifically a gastroenterology EHR system, practice management system or endowriter software come into play? Software options solely designed for GI-practices should help with automation of quality reporting and compliance. The capacity to compare yourself to clinical benchmarks while seamlessly incorporating a gastroenterology EHR system into your current workflow can help you spend more time on what you do best—taking care of patients.
The Business Keys
At the end of the day, your practice is a business and needs the tools to optimize operations. So when it comes to gastroenterology software, what does this look like? Find out if a vendor’s gastroenterology EHR system integrates between an office and an ASC facility, and if it can track patient flow between locations. Interoperability and efficiency go hand in hand. So look for gastroenterology software that can interface with different health systems via HL7 and direct messaging while having access to data in near-real time. Technology should be used to your advantage when it comes to seamlessly running your practice.
As a business owner, improving the bottom line is probably at the top of your ongoing list of goals. But how and where do you start? Verifying a patient’s insurance information prior to an appointment, along with a system that offers automated suggested coding, can help contribute to more successful business operations. Look for gastroenterology software that can help you accomplish both.

“The gGastro EHR is designed for what we do as gastroenterologists, and that makes our lives easier. Why would we use anything else? We wouldn’t implement a cardiology EHR solution and try to make it work for GI. Having a single-specialty platform is invaluable and one of the reasons we’ll continue to use gGastro.” – EDWARD JURKOVIC, DO, DIGESTIVE DISEASE CONSULTANTS
