Video: New Tool Aids Determination of Colonoscopy Surveillance Intervals

With an increased emphasis on improving quality and decreasing costs, new tools are needed to improve adherence to evidence-based practices and guidelines in endoscopy.

In a video abstract, Timothy D. Imler describes an automated system that uses natural language processing (NLP) and clinical decision support to facilitate determination of colonoscopy surveillance intervals.


In the video, Imler explains why NLP with clinical decision support is a promising new technology for tracking compliance with endoscopy surveillance intervals.
