Module Could Take The Burn Out Of Heartburn

Bright.md has added a module to its non-video virtual care solution, SmartExam, that could help treat the 20% of North Americans who suffer from symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). SmartExam will use the GerdQ, a validated screening tool, to collect patient-reported symptoms and history, which providers can then use to support initial diagnosis and treatment.  

Patients suffering from heartburn, acid reflux, or other GERD symptoms log into SmartExam and answer a series of clinically dynamic questions about their symptoms and health history. A clinician then reviews their answers and medical history to approve an appropriate treatment plan. That plan could include over-the-counter medications, prescriptions, or a referral to a gastroenterologist for more advanced screening, depending on the severity and duration of symptoms.
