Data collected in the CORI v4 Endoscopic Reporting Software can be easily submitted to the GI Quality Improvement Consortium (GIQuIC). GIQuIC is an educational and scientific organization established by physicians specializing in gastroenterology. The Consortium's purpose is to improve the quality of medical care given to patients throughout the United States and abroad. CORI has had an association with the GIQuIC since its formation.
The GI Quality Improvement Consortium Project Goals
Endoscopy data must be collected in a systematic method and used to measure the quality of endoscopy practices. Ongoing development and testing of metrics for specific endoscopy procedures is required. Critical to success is the need to report industry-wide performance against measurable processes and practices at the national level. Objectives include the following:
- Establish a national GI endoscopy data repository for storage and maintenance of endoscopy quality measures for GI endoscopists who want to document and improve their endoscopy performance.
- Provide benchmarking reports to participating physicians and facilities to support their quality improvement initiatives.
- Identify gaps in care and develop endoscopy quality indicators to address gaps.
- Collect data that can be used by researchers conducting clinical outcomes studies and quality initiatives
