OBJECTIVE It is important for clinicians to inquire about "alarm features" as it may identify those at risk for organic disease and who require additional diagnostic workup. We developed a computer algorithm called Automated Evaluation of Gastrointestinal Symptoms (AEGIS) that systematically collects patient gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and alarm(More)
BACKGROUND Improvements in software and design and reduction in cost have made virtual reality (VR) a practical tool for immersive, three-dimensional (3D), multisensory experiences that distract patients from painful stimuli. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to measure the impact of a onetime 3D VR intervention versus a two-dimensional (2D)(More)
Treatment of hepatitis C (HCV) has been revolutionized with the introduction of the direct-acting antivirals (DAA). The DAAs allowed patients to better tolerate HCV therapy with much lower side effects and better efficacy. The DAA also offered hope for a cure in HCV patients who cannot tolerate interferon-based therapy. Such populations include patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Use of GI endoscopy is historically lower in nonwhite ethnic and racial groups compared with whites. These disparities are multifactorial but likely contribute to differences in GI clinical outcomes. We sought to improve endoscopy uptake overall and in minorities by predictive overbooking and active recruitment in a hospital-based GI(More)
Postoperative ileus (POI) can worsen outcomes, increase cost, and prolong hospitalization. We previously found that a disposable, non-invasive acoustic gastrointestinal surveillance (AGIS) biosensor distinguishes healthy controls from patients recovering from abdominal surgery. Here, we tested whether AGIS can prospectively predict which patients will(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have examined inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients' knowledge and understanding of biologic therapies outside traditional surveys. Here, we used social media data to examine IBD patients' understanding of the risks and benefits associated with biologic therapies and how this affects decision-making. METHODS We collected posts(More)
