Endoscopy Unit-Level Measures That Improve ADR: Report Cards and a Second Observer
Douglas K. Rex, MD, MASGE, reviewing Arora A, et al. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2023 Apr 18.
In a systematic review and meta-analysis, 15 studies evaluating the impact of report cards on adenoma detection rate (ADR) were among the 34 studies that qualified for inclusion. The odds ratio (OR) for the ADR increase after report card implementation was significant at 1.28.
Among other studies and findings, 4 studies evaluated the effect of an additional observer on ADR, which resulted in a significant ADR increase (OR, 1.25), and monitoring withdrawal time (5 studies) did not impact ADR (OR, 1.35; 95% confidence interval, 0.93-1.96).
