Prominent University Hospital Selects gMed as Strategic Partner
Weston, FL (October 13, 2014) – gMed is excited to announce that Thomas Jefferson University Hospital’s Gastroenterology and Hepatology department has selected and successfully implemented gGastro as their Endoscopy Report Writer. This selection came after careful deliberation and comparisons among leading industry vendors. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital eventually determined that gMed’s gGastro Endoscopy Report Writer was the best fit for their facility because of its foundational health record database. They also concluded gGastro was most appropriate because of its complete (not modular) Meaningful Use Stage 2 certification and interoperability capabilities which allow hospitals to collect clinical information, store it discretely and promote quality of care through full compliance with hospital and community health exchanges.
“We found gGastro to be a powerful tool which will allow us to achieve Meaningful Use Stage 2 and collect clinical and quality data in an effective and efficient manner. In addition, its enhanced search capabilities are invaluable for our research activities, allowing us to remain competitive in today’s healthcare environment,” says, Dr. Anthony J. DiMarino, Chief of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Thomas Jefferson.
gGastro provides advanced tools to promote quality of care and full compliance with hospitals and community information exchanges. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital is taking full advantage of gMed’s interoperability, allowing seamless clinical data transfer between gGastro and the hospital systems.
“Thomas Jefferson University Hospital joins a growing list of hospitals with a unique combined focus on information availability, operational excellence, and evidence based medicine as a foundation to bring about industry best practices,” stated Joe Rubinsztain, CEO of gMed. “Our vision is to provide comprehensive software and services to the medical community through ease-of-use solutions which aid in helping them advance their goals of delivering industry leading digestive programs to the public.”
