💙 What’s one thing you tell everyone they need to know about Jane?

Jane is a critical part of our tech stack at Ginger Desk. We love how it automates so many processes for patients and practitioners and we want to shout out Jane Task function from the rooftops. This function lets us communicate confidentially with team members about critical tasks and documents for patients all without having to toggle back and forth between the patient’s chart and email.
