IBD Clinical Service Line

The evaluation and management of patients with suspected or known inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be complex. The IBD clinical service line is a resource for health-care professionals who provide care to patients with IBD.

Use the Latest Guidelines & Care Pathways

Guidelines provide recommendations on the management of patients with IBD. The clinical care pathways/algorithms transform guideline recommendations into clinical steps in caring for a patient with IBD. 


Manage Your Practice and Reimbursement

Manage your practice with useful resources and practice improvement tools including CPT, HCPCS, ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes that are commonly used for GI procedures.

*These documents are not to be construed as standards of coding. All decisions regarding coding of an episode of care should be made by the physician in consideration of all aspects of the patient's specific medical circumstances.


Measure Your Quality

Several mechanisms are available for capturing quality data related to the care of patients with IBD.



Educate Your Patients

Materials include AGA brochures and videos to help your patients better understand their condition and facilitate doctor-patient discussions.
