Dr. Michael Weinstein Weighs in on GI Quality Metrics

Michael Weinstien, MD, Capital Digestive Care Vice President and managing partner of Metropolitan Gastroenterology Group talks to Becker’s ASC Review about monitoring quality metrics in digestive health care.

“It’s important to track repeat procedures done because the colonoscopy wasn’t sufficiently performed the first time,” says Dr. Weinstein. “Insurance companies and patients will be interested in these numbers. If your repeat colonoscopy procedure rate is high, identify potential areas for improvement.” The conversation is timely as the Affordable Care Act moves forward and lawmakers continue to focus on reducing healthcare expenses while improving the delivery of that care and the outcomes of patients.
