AGA app improves your patient’s health and bottom line

AGA has partnered with Rx.Health, a digital health company, to create a colorectal cancer (CRC) preparatory app.

You want to find ways to improve your patient outcomes and reduce your practice costs? Now, there is an app for that. The CRC preparatory app can reduce expenses you lose from aborted or incomplete colonoscopies.

Launched in 2019, the CRC app is already generating remarkable results. The Arizona Center for Digestive Health used the CRC app and recorded a 24 percent improvement in bowel preparation by colonoscopy patients, a 50% reduction in aborted procedures and a 93% patient satisfaction rate. Research conducted by Rx.Health also determined patients were using the CRC app two to four-times longer than competing apps, and the CRC app was saving gastroenterologists between $20,000 and $40,000 annually.

Plans are underway between AGA and Rx.Health to expand the partnership to build apps for colorectal cancer surveillance, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) registry, fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) and other GI disorders.
