Your Guide to Innovation in GI

June 22, 2017

Keep up to date with the latest advances in GI by reading the 2017 AGA Tech Summit Report.

As a busy clinician, we recognize that it’s hard to keep abreast of the latest advances and technology being introduced into the GI marketplace. To make it easier on you, we’ve compiled a series of important updates on innovation in GI in our 2017 AGA Tech Summit Report. This report is available on the GI & Hepatology News website, and was also delivered with the June issue of the newspaper.

The AGA Tech summit is the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology’s flagship event — designed to bring all of the stakeholders in GI innovation together to identify current practice needs and how new technologies can help gastroenterologists better care for their patients.

In the comprehensive meeting report, you’ll find:

  • An update on recent successes in GI medtech.
  • Advice for leveraging new reimbursement models.
  • The implications of precision medicine in GI.
  • A look at the five new technologies presented during the AGA Shark Tank.

If you’re interested in being on the front lines of advancing innovation in GI, mark your calendar — the 2018 AGA Tech Summit will take place March 21–23 in Boston, MA.
