Integration of an Electronic Education System Into Colonoscopy: Improving Education, Consent and Compliance of Patients at Colonoscopy With an Ipad-based Secure Video Intervention


This study would assess the ability of an e-intervention in patient education and
instructions during peri-procedure and procedural day visits to improve the experience of
gastroenterology procedures. This study would seek to show that through this alternative
educational measure, there would be an increased show rate to colonoscopy appointments, an
increased preparation quality, and an increase in patient understanding and satisfaction
with the colonoscopy procedure. The investigators will attempt to track procedure completion
rate and polyp detection rate for individual providers.

The e-intervention would be multimodal. In the pre-procedure setting, ipad would be able to
provide a viewpoint for the video education, a template for the patients (or caregivers) to
send themselves links to appropriate instructions to remind them of their obligations by
secure email. This e-intervention would supplement traditional printed and website
accessible instructions.
