Gastro Health is one of the largest and fastest growing gastroenterology groups in the U.S.
A leading medical group for digestive health, Gastro Health recently acquired a large, 15-physician practice in South Florida. This deal doubles the group’s physical footprint in Palm Beach County, establishing new locations in Boca Raton, Jupiter, and Delray Beach. The organization is committed to continued growth in the region, with more locations planned in the coming years.
The gastroenterologists and other medical professionals at Digestive Health Associates are some of the best and brightest in the field. They will take the time to listen to each patient’s medical history and discuss treatment options, assessing their tolerance for medications and procedures. The group offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic procedures, including endoscopy and gastroscopy.
Private equity is increasingly investing in physician specialties, such as gastroenterology. Since the first PE fund invested in gastroenterology in the last decade, more than $50 billion has been invested in this sector. Private equity investors are pursuing this industry sector as it provides a great deal of opportunity. After all, we’re living in the Golden Age of older rectums, according to one investment manager.
It has adopted eClinicalWorks as its EHR
eClinicalWorks is a leading healthcare IT company. Last June, the company announced more than 1,000 healthcare providers have chosen its comprehensive EHR solution. The company has signed contracts with small to large enterprises, FQHCs, and ambulatory surgery centers. In addition to its growing list of healthcare clients, it recently announced the adoption of eClinicalWorks by Medical Associates of Clinton.
eClinicalWorks is an EHR developed by a private company that has a strong focus on technology and interoperability. Its technology advances healthcare by leading to the integration of all patient data across care settings. This expands the use of EHRs and streamlines workflows. The company’s innovative features make it possible for clinicians to make better clinical decisions based on information obtained through patient records.
The rapid adoption of EHRs is spurring a focus on interoperability, which is the ability of an EHR to seamlessly share data between different healthcare systems. For example, eClinicalWorks customers are able to access data from their hospitals, such as discharge summaries, CCDAs, and additional codified information. Furthermore, this cloud-based EHR can also integrate with a patient portal to ensure a seamless patient experience.
It has implemented GoToMeetings to train staff
As a growing organization, Gastro Health had several factors to consider when rolling out Healow tele-visits. For example, it had recently acquired a number of practices, and not all of them were ready to make the switch over yet. Because of this, the organization held massive GoToMeetings to train its staff on the new technology and to hold open house meetings. Additionally, it wrote a user manual and developed processes to streamline staff training.
