How do I access my Gaidge information?
The information for Gaidge is collected and electronically transferred nightly to the secure Gaidge application. A user login name and password will be assigned to each team member and allows access your practice statistics based on permissions set. Click here to request your username and password.
Aren't these numbers in my management system?
Yes, the data is input, stored and pulled from your management system. However, the information is warehoused in large data sets and scattered in various reports. In order to make use of the data in your PMS, a practice must search for, pull and compile these reports. This is a time consuming process that can introduce error. Gaidge brings your information together in one place with insights, visualization, benchmarks and comparisons, making your data meaningful and actionable for you.
Is my information secure?
Yes, your practice management data transfers to Gaidge with an anonymous and unique identifier that does not contain any personal patient information. Gaidge gathers your data with unique identifiers, then pulls the data into an aggregated format at the practice management level. From there it is transferred into the dashboards and charts, providing accuracy of performance and delivering visualization without any trace back to an individual. We have reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to help safeguard your personal information. However, you should know that no company, including Gaidge, can fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information. To help protect yourself, use a strong password and protect your user names and passwords to help prevent others from accessing your accounts and services.
Is my data shared?
Gaidge shares anonymous aggregated roll up comparisons to Gaidge subscribers, based on the AAO constituency regions, to help our users and the industry understand comparisons and trends. Occasionally anonymous aggregated data is used to support articles and education. The data gathered covers multiple states and cannot be tracked to one zip code or location due to the regional settings and the anonymous codes that are assigned when data is pulled. Personal practice information is never shared.
When will Gaidge be available for my practice management software?
We are continually pursuing integrations with practice management software providers to integrate Gaidge. We work with the leading six providers but if you are interested in an Gaidge integration with another practice management software package, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
