How much does Health Gorilla cost?
The Health Gorilla Clinical Network is FREE for physicians and their teams. Our revenues are generated by the small fees we receive from participating vendors for each order placed through the network.
How many participants does the Health Gorilla Healthcare Clinical Network currently have?
We are rapidly converging on 3 million patient records within the system and adding dozens of clinicians daily. We support 9,000+ diagnostic labs and 35,000+ radiology centers today.
What really differentiates your service? Why is this compelling for doctors?
For doctors, the Health Gorilla Clinical Network provides a single point to exchange clinical data with peers, patients, and clinical services providers like clinics, hospitals, health systems, and diagnostic vendors. Alternatively, the typical practice might have 1-2 single directional interfaces from their EMR to their labs, 5 more lab portals and 2 fax machines going full tilt. Health Gorilla brings your practice completely online, automating administrative processes and saving time, money and frustration. At the same time, it ensures that your practice is fully compliant; moving paper and fax around creates risk for HIPAA compliance and holds back Meaningful Use 2 achievement. And, it improves communication with your colleagues and patients alike. Ultimately, Health Gorilla positions your practice to improve interoperability and deliver superior patient care.
There are hundreds of consumer healthcare applications available. Why should I use Health Gorilla?
Health Gorilla is the only network that has the data you need to truly take control over your health, creating a closed loop of information and communications between you and everyone in your circle of care. Other applications ask you to manually upload data, and offer little or no connectivity across the health care continuum. This can create an endless cycle of frustration and before you know it, the latest app you downloaded is collecting dust on your smartphone screen. With Health Gorilla’s Clinical Network, you can obtain a lifetime of medical records in minutes, and view them all in one place, whether on your computer or mobile device, regardless of technology, EMR or physician affiliations. Put simply, no other app can do this. Best of all, Health Gorilla is also available to download for FREE on any iOS device.
How long will it take to get my records?
It will only take a few minutes for you to walk through the process of requesting your records. If your doctor is already part of Health Gorilla, your records could be available in a matter of hours. Off-network doctors must comply with our records request within 15 days. Typically, you’ll have your entire health history at your fingertips in 2 weeks or less.
What if my doctor isn’t part of the Health Gorilla Clinical Network?
More than 100,000 doctors and medical facilities are already using Health Gorilla to communicate and exchange information. If yours isn’t one of them, we’ll automatically send them a request on your behalf to provide your records and join the network.
