"Gastrointestinal Specialists of Georgia strives to create an experience for its patients of top-quality, specialized care", stated Dr. David Finkelman, president and CEO of Gastrointestinal Specialists of Georgia. "Our previous system limited our ability to provide this experience, especially when we recently expanded our group, so we turned to eClinicalWorks to tie all of our locations both clinically and financially. eClinicalWorks EMR/PM has extensive functionality for GI groups and we look forward to working with the company to create additional GI-specific content for other practices in this speciality."

Gastrointestinal Specialists of Georgia will implement eClinicalWorks unified EMR/PM system to streamline the clinical processes between practice locations and promote patient safety while reducing costs and plans to use the Patient Portal to promote increased communication between patients and providers.

"We have always worked closely with our customers to enhance our product and look forward to being a partner for the long-haul. Our feature-rich solution and exceptional service are two reasons that Gastrointestinal Specialists of Georgia selected us instead of other systems. Being chosen by Georgia's second-largest group validates our position as a leading vendor in the ambulatory space and for the gastro-intestinal speciality."
