gGastro Suite by Modernizing Medicine Gastroenterology


Modernizing Medicine Gastroenterology offers gGastro EHR, a fully integrated platform designed for gastroenterologists. It combines the attributes of an electronic health records (EHR) system and endoscopy report writer (ERW) in one solution for private practices, ASCs and hospitals.

The gGastro EHR includes built-in MIPS data collection and scorecards, customizable notes, speech-to-text software compatibility, GI-specific task workflow and knowledge base, nursing notes, clinical decision support and one-click visit note finalization. It interfaces with regional health systems and connects to GIQuIC.

The gGastro ERW can operate standalone or integrate with gGastro EHR, allowing teams to update key patient data without duplicate entries.

The gGastro Suite also includes practice management, revenue cycle management (RCM) or billing, analytics for benchmarking and reporting, iPad check in and check out, online patient engagement portal and patient appointment reminder service and a mobile solution that allows users to access their schedules or look up patients on an iOS or Android device.

All-Around Great

I am a Medical Assistant at a GI clinic, with gGastro you don't have to know the software entirely, only the functions that relate to your specific job function. The doctors at the clinic enjoy the level of customization within the Electronic Health Records and Endoscopy Report Writer. I use the EHR aspect of gGastro daily while working in the scheduling department. I started out rooming patients, then working at the front desk area and progressed to scheduling within a few months. I've discovered that regardless of department, gGastro is essential for business operations and being able to move employees around without additional training is a huge plus.

Pros

The ease of use is most likable about this software. Growing up in the digital age i'm a quick learner when it comes to software and tech. I've witnessed many co-workers who considered themselves not so tech savvy learn this software quickly. Many functions tend to carry over into each task to the point that I've been placed in several different departments at work and I already know the system of gGastro well, no new learning needed. This is a great feature.

Cons

I don't think it's a con at all but it would be neat to add an instant messaging type feature. The tasking and messaging works well and gets the job done. However a common situation I face is the need for timely responses from co-workers. I believe a live messaging type feature would bring even more value to this already great software program.

Dr. Nemec's review

Pros

The leadership is continually trying to improve the product. It is also the PREMIER GI-specific EHR. The integration of clinical information between the endoscopy suite and office is seamless IF gMed product is used for both. The integration between clinical and practice management is extremely helpful for a managing physician

Cons

Major general complaint:
It is still very cumbersome and impossible to efficiently work within an electronic healthcare record.

Significant specific complaint:
Clinical data recorded in either a tasking note or gPortal is not readily available to the clinician. Those separate and distinct sections have to be searched for clinical information. To avoid this problem, I often "dual document"

My latest EMR

Good system but I have wasted a lot of time during my day waiting for the system to work, load and update.

Pros

Easy to learn and navigate . You can complete billing, scheduling, and messaging without having multiple systems!

Cons

Slow as molasses! I have used other EMRs and this is by far the slowest one ! I can’t even imagine how efficient I could be in patient service if this EMR worked at its full potential. You can not “flip” from screen to screen quickly or even type too fast!

We looked at several EMRs and ultimately chose gMed because it was the only one that was "GI specific." It truly seems to have the hearts of the private gastroenterologist in mind. This company is very warm and friendly to work with, and I know that their own survival is deeply entwined with my survival as a private gastroenterologist. You can't say this for any other vendor. Everyone at their company - from trainers to programmers - know what I do as a gastroenterologist. Like many EMR companies now, they are super busy working on Meaningful Use stuff, but they are also working on stuff that I care about, instead of working on things that a PCP or dermatologist mind care about. We have nearly all of their products and have built a fully integrated system that includes everything from office to endo to scheduling and billing. I am forced to use ProVation at the hospital I work at, and I hate it. gMED's product is ultimately customizable, so you can become very efficient (of course, you need good IT and SuperUser types, but that's true of any EMR). If you are thinking of switching to an EMR, come to their annual Users Conference to network with other GI docs, and you'll be convinced! This product may not (yet) be as flashy as other products (eClinicalWorks, for example), but don't be lured in by the flashiness of someone who doesn't really care about you. You are not going for a quick fling here, you're marrying an EMR vendor and want someone for the long haul. This product is only getting better! Transitioning from paper to EMR is a painful process; I won't kid you. But I can't see why any private gastroenterologist would work with any EMR vendor besides gMED.

Ancient platform is in urgent need to a complete rebuild to be browser agnostic

Best for GI but we deserve better.

Pros

This is the most GI-specific EHR out there and it does a great job integrating the endoscopy workflow, scheduling, and outpatient workflow. Good document management, faxing integration, usually fast.

Cons

Stuck in internet explorer and activex from over a decade ago. Imagine using a cell phone that old. This is a cumbersome setup that requires use of Windows OS, unsafe browser settings, and it often stops working after Windows auto-updates. Patient portal and patient communications in general are dated, though does allow sharing of PDF versions of chart docs. Fax was nice but direct should work a lot better.

Can only renew or prescribe meds one at a time. Importing pharmacies and local providers is cumbersome.

Pros

The best part of this product is the fact that it is specialty specific.

Cons

The hardest part of the product is moving forward with electronic medical records. We switched over from paper to EHR and it was a challenge. Now that the transition is complete, we could never imagine going back.

gMed - not robust enough for a large group

gMed appears to have been designed for a smaller physician group. With a group as large as ours (28 docs), it is currently cumbersome and does not offer all of the flexibility and support needed.

Pros

Reporting features for financial info are great.

Cons

Reporting features for clinical aspects are weak.
Has trouble working with large volumes of data. (i.e. Year to date reports for 10 months or more always time out and won't complete running)

We are an 8-provider GI practice; we've been on GMED EMR 18 months, and we could not be happier! The GI-specific product was extremely easy to adapt to our practice, and we easily met meaningful use. The physicians and staff love it. Our workflow is now completely digitalized and highly efficient; it also presents countless opportunities to improve patient care. Support is great; I love their GBUS for online training.

Great Product

Pros

The product is intuitive, easy to use, and GI-specific.

Cons

Ideas are not able to be all addressed at once. They are appropriately triaged; however, instant gratification is always wanted.

gGastro - Lacks Customer Support

This system needs some updating. The active X controls make it a real pain to work with other applications. The support has recently taken a dive but am hoping that firms up once their new team of techs is trained up. Just went through a purchase is my understanding

Improving - but slowly

Pros

I've gotten used to the product and its quirks. It is possible to modify it to one's preferences.

Cons

Requests for fixes are too slowly addressed. Many obvious flaws are ignored. Many unnecessary steps are for a simple process. The program is very slow at times.
