The platform is free to use to schedule and prepare for colonoscopy, manage your health history, and keep track of your medications.
Open access colonoscopy refers to a scheduling process where patients can directly schedule a colonoscopy with a gastroenterologist without requiring a prior office visit or consultation.
Getting started is easy! Simply download the app from the App Store or Google Play, create an account, and then search for a gastroenterologist in your area to request an appointment for colonoscopy.
GutChek is HIPAA compliant, which means that it meets the standards for protecting sensitive patient health information and maintaining patient privacy as outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Most commercial insurance policies do not require a referral for a screening colonoscopy. However, doctor will check with your insurance provider prior to approving your procedure request to ensure all necessary steps are taken.
GutChek currently requires a smartphone to access its platform as it is primarily designed as a mobile app. However, we are exploring options to make our services available through other means, such as web-based platforms, to ensure that as many patients as possible can benefit from the convenience of our services. We will keep our users updated as we expand our platform.
