CARE COORDINATION & PATIENT ENGAGEMENT PLATFORM
AUTOMATE AND DIGITIZE YOUR GASTROENTEROLOGY PATIENTS' CARE COORDINATION
Reduce administrative burden and improve gastroenterology patients' experience and outcomes.
Automate your gastroenterology clinic's care pathways
Gastroenterology is the study of the normal function and diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and rectum, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver. The most common examinations are gastroscopy and colonoscopy procedures. Biopsies and various procedures such as removals of small tumors can be performed during endoscopies. In order for the procedure and diagnostics to be successful, the patient must empty their bowels at the right time and also follow other nutrition instructions before the procedure.
Before an endoscopy procedure, it is important to inform patients of the following:
- Procedure information
- Bowel emptying instructions
- Nutrition and medication instructions
After the endoscopy procedure, hospitals need to provide information and collect data, such as:
- Report of studies done during endoscopy (biopsy, tumor removal etc.)
- Nutrition information
- Medication information
- Information about post-procedure activity
Read from our blog how the South Karelia Social and Health Care District's Endoscopy Care Unit uses the BuddyCare Platform to automate gastroscopy and colonoscopy patients' care coordination process. The blog is a translation of the hospital district magazine from spring 2020.
