Wolters Kluwer Health has released a query tool that streamlines the collection of quality data for the GI Quality Improvement Consortium (GIQuIC) benchmarking initiative.

GIQuIC was established by the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) to support quality improvement efforts by creating a national GI endoscopy data repository of Endoscopy Quality Measures.

Part of ProVation MD for gastroenterology (GI) procedure documentation and coding, the query tool also allows for easy collection of data in an approved format that can then be submitted to GIQuIC.

The data will be used to provide benchmarking reports, identify and address care gaps and collect data for use in outcomes studies and other quality initiatives.

ProVation MD streamlines GIQuIC data collection and submission by first guiding physicians through the process of capturing required, conditionally required and optional data elements.

The ProVation MD query tool is then used to organize collected data in a specific format that can be submitted to the GIQuIC registry.

ProVation MD replaces dictation and transcription and allows physicians to efficiently document procedures at the point of care.

By driving structured and compliant data capture and pairing it with robust reporting and analysis capabilities, it simplifies reporting, clinical research and audit preparation and simplifies participation in quality initiatives, benchmarking and other reporting statutes.
