Improving clinical practice and patient outcomes.
Providing real-time peer-based performance evaluation.
Setting the standard in quality improvement initiatives.
Today, informed patients want to know about the quality of care being provided. They frequently ask the questions, “What is your adenoma detection rate? What is your complication rate?” With GIQuIC you can demonstrate to patients the quality of your performance and your dedication to continuous improvement.
You know you provide quality care, but how is your performance going to be measured in the future and how will you compare to your colleagues?
GIQuIC – GI Quality Improvement Consortium, Ltd. – the non-profit collaboration of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) is a quality benchmarking registry that is raising the bar on efficiency, effectiveness, and reliability.
Participating in a benchmarking registry initiative like GIQuIC requires facilities to establish the processes for tracking and reporting in an efficient and reliable manner, and readies facilities for future quality and performance expectations.
Hear what others have to say about participating in the GIQuIC registry:
“GIQuIC has made it simple and easy to track our procedural volume and quality. This has allowed the physicians to monitor their performance to ensure it is meeting quality standards.”
“With the GIQuIC program, we can get almost any type of information we need with the touch of a button. GIQuIC has really helped identify certain gaps we've had in services we're providing. In some areas, it's really been a surprise to some of the physicians how well they are or are not doing compared with what they thought.”
