The business model in gastroenterology is changing, causing cost pressures and uncertainty.
The basis for reimbursement for gastroenterology services has shifted from a fee-for-service model to value-based contracts. This change of reimbursement model means that in the future, gastroenterologists will have to document the quality of their procedures. Documentation of patient satisfaction will also become increasingly important as a driver for repeat visits and word-of-mouth referrals. Moreover, real-time optimization of patient care will become possible when gastroenterologists frequently document both quality of care and patient satisfaction.
