The agreement implicates Digestive Healthcare Center as the first gastroenterology practice in New Jersey and North east to have a complete access in using the revolutionary Sonar MD platform. The platform allows clinicians to monitor and respond on their patients’ health status between visits through the ongoing use of electronic health assessment surveys.

SonarMD utilizes the nationally acclaimed evidence-based guidelines. Following which it applies Patient Reported Outcomes score to each survey submission, and also alerts the physicians while in case of any health hazard of their patients. This early intervention helps in mitigating any major health risk and prevents hospitalization in case of the patients. The platform delivers sophisticated analytical capabilities by using the collective data generated by patient input over time. This facilitates healthcare personnel to generate accurate and efficient insights about patients’ health statistics.
