In 2013, Stop Colon Cancer Now reached over 170 million people throughout the country. Last year’sNational Screening Day motivated more than 2,013 new patients to seek colon cancer screening. This year, National Screening Day will be held on March 7.Navigator- If you need to implement or improve a patient recall program, our highly automated and affordable process can deliver.GI Purchasing Power – If you want to cut endoscopy center costs, our GPO provides significant savings on the purchase of most drugs, devices and supplies. Our partners also enjoy industry-leading pricing on equipment and devices with leading manufacturers. GI Source, our exclusive direct sourcing program, produces demonstrable savings on commonly used, low-physician preference supplies.Quality Programs – With the increasing focus on transparency from payers and patients, we help collect, document, analyze and report on the quality care our physician partners provide in AMSURG endoscopy centers every day. Our extensive Quality team also provides customized and proprietary quality, accreditation, benchmarking and regulatory compliance resources for our partnered centers. Our Quality and IT experts are currently developing recommendations, action plans and tools to make it simpler and easier for our endoscopy centers to collect, compile and process data for the new CMS Quality Measures regarding screening colonoscopy surveillance intervals.   We’d like to be your partner in helping your endoscopy center improve, adapt and grow in this rapidly changing era of healthcare.
