New Patient Education Video: What Makes a High-Quality Colonoscopy?

Dec. 15, 2015

AGA wants to help you educate your patients about the importance of quality.

While patients care about how much they’re spending on health-care services, they don’t always understand the difference between cost and quality. We’ve created a video for you to put on your practice website, “Questions to Ask About a High-Quality Colonoscopy,” which will help you educate patients about quality. 

The video and accompanying flyer guide patients in their decisions about getting a colonoscopy and choosing a provider. As data shows, patients value high quality over low price. 

How to Use the Video and Flyer

This video is meant for patients, so be sure to share it with them by:

  • Embedding the video link from YouTube on your website for current and prospective patients.
  • Embedding the video link from the AGA website.
  • Downloading the PDF flyer.
  • Printing the flyer to distribute to patients as a tangible takeaway.
  • Emailing the flyer to eligible patients.
  • Playing the video on waiting room monitors and posting the flyer in visible areas.

AGA encourages you to continue to track your data and to be prepared to answer patients' questions. The resources included in the AGA Roadmap to the Future of GI can assist you in improving the quality of your practice, while our Digestive Health Recognition ProgramTM will ensure you are getting the credit you deserve for practicing high-quality care.
