Abstract

Quality improvement of colonoscopy continues to be an important topic. This effort begins with creating detailed and accurate colonoscopy reports. Quality indicators are measurable endpoints that may be used in quality assurance and improvement plans. Key quality measures include cecal intubation rate, adenoma detection, withdrawal time, preparation quality, follow-up recommendations, and American Society of Anesthesiologists classification. Unresolved issues include establishing proper benchmarks, documenting the correlation between process measures and outcomes, aligning incentives to improved quality outcomes, and issues regarding access to quality data.
