“It is expected that the use of the HyGIeaCare Prep will clearly lower barriers to entry for colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening.”
AUSTIN TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2016
HyGIeaCare Inc. announced that a review of the experience for the first 791 patients in Austin TX has been published in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Digestive System ( http://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/hygieacare-preparation-for-colonoscopya-technical-update-for-success-2161-069X-1000458.php?aid=79003 ). The paper was co-authored by Harish K. Gagneja, Parth Parekh, Dawn Burleson and David Johnson.
HyGIeaCare Prep represents a paradigm shift from the standard per oral purgative laxatives traditionally prescribed prior to colonoscopy. This innovative approach provides a safe and highly effective preparation, a requisite for performance for high quality colonoscopy and detection of colonic lesions.
Patient satisfaction is universally high with 95% of patients willing to pay for a HyGIeaCare prep in the future, despite the additional charge.
Integration into a gastroenterology practice is fluid with scheduling of the colonoscopy coordinated with the time of the HyGIeaCare Prep, so as to allow prompt and timely arrival of all patients to the colonoscopy suite.
By providing options to what otherwise might be barriers specifically related to the intolerance or refusal to take oral purgatives, HyGIeaCare Prep offers a new exciting advance in colonoscopy preparation. It is expected that the use of the HyGIeaCare Prep will clearly lower these barriers to entry for colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening.
“This publication teaches that patient satisfaction from the HyGIeaCare Prep is universally high with 95% of patients willing to pay for a HyGIeaCare prep in the future,” said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of HyGIeaCare, Inc. “It is expected that the use of the HyGIeaCare Prep will clearly lower barriers to entry for colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening.”
In addition, the HyGIeaCare Prep is safe and there have been no serious adverse events in patients referred by their gastroenterologist who underwent HyGIeaCare Prep in the U.S.
