Abstract

We suggest that a formalized program for supporting endoscopic innovation (such as described earlier for colon polyps) by the GI professional societies could direct and dramatically increase the clinical impact of new endoscopic technologies. The goal of endoscopic innovation is to improve patient care, reduce risks for patients, facilitate quality improvement in endoscopy, improve the relative cost-effectiveness of endoscopy, and reduce costs to the healthcare system. The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the American College of Gastroenterology, and the American Gastroenterological Association all have an interest in this area, and the leadership and membership of these societies need to consider a program such as this within their own societies or across all of the societies. We hope the GI societies and GI community consider this proposal and move forward in this arena.
