EFFECT OF A TRACKING PROGRAM ON COLON ADENOMA SURVEILLANCE AND ADHERENCE TO GUIDELINE RECOMMENDATIONS
This will be a retrospective chart review of 500 patients who had a colonoscopy and were
found to have a tubular adenoma between the years of 2004-2010. We will compare the rate and
timing of completion of repeat colonoscopies pre and post establishment of a polyp registry
(tracking system) in 2007. Each group will be composed of 250 subjects consecutively
identified from all the patients who underwent colonoscopy and were found to have a tubular
adenoma (Group 1-2004 to 2007, Group 2 2007-2010).
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Retrospective
Percentage completing follow up colonoscopy
A polyp tracking program (registry) decreases the amount of patients lost to follow up.
