We hope this edition of the Practice Support Bulletin finds everyone well. Congratulations to the individual in Riverton, UT who won our last practice support draw for a $100 Amazon gift card after filling out our short survey regarding new ligator feedback! In this edition, we’re going to share some physician feedback from our annual survey and provide you with a couple of updated clinical forms.
Every year, CRH circulates a survey to garner feedback from our trained partners regarding their experience with the CRH O’Regan System and we wanted to share some of this feedback with you as it may be relevant to your practice.
With 50% of the population suffering from symptomatic hemorrhoids by age 50, many groups introduce hemorrhoid treatment into their practice to provide a greater continuum of care to their patients. In our survey, physicians listed the following as the top 3 reasons they chose the CRH O’Regan System:
In terms of how these patients are being generated, the physicians identified the following methods as the most important:
If your practice is looking to identify more patients for hemorrhoid banding, I would love to share with you some of the best practices CRH has developed over the years of running its own clinics and working with over 900 GI practices across the country. Feel free to call or email me to discuss.
Per physician request, we have updated our Chart Note to include an area to record which type of band (standard or latex-free) was used during the patient’s visit and we removed some of the line items practices don’t use. Please click here to download the latest version of our chart note.
We have also updated our “Information for Cross Covering Physicians” form to include our Medical Directors’ contact information, who are available for physician consultation 24/7. You can download the updated form here.
We have a number of additional helpful clinical forms and patient handouts available on our website. If you have questions about any of these materials or suggestions as to how we can make these resources more useful to your practice, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
