A new mobile app from the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) provides instant recommendations for the management of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It is now available from Apple’s app store.
The app, which is called AGA’s Instant Recommendations for IBD Quality™, uses national IBD quality measures to deliver quick, concise, and actionable recommendations for treatment at the point of patient care.
The app uses the same quality measures as the AGA Digestive Health Recognition Program™ (DHRP), helping clinicians improve quality, and also achieve rewards and recognition for their success. The AGA DHRP, which is a Bridges to Excellence IBD Care Recognition program, recognizes clinicians for superior quality of care in the treatment of IBD and is also a way to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Physician Quality Reporting System incentives.

The AGA has been testing the app, incorporating suggestions from users, and will be providing updates.
An app is also being developed to provide the same guidance and resources for treatment of patients with hepatitis C. It will coincide with the launch of Bridges to Excellence Hepatitis C Recognition.
