Real-World Evidence of >12,000 procedures validate a published economics outcomes study – HygiPrep™ is a Dominant Strategy Over Oral Prep for Colonoscopy
We look forward to payers and patients benefit by reimbursement.”
NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — HyGIeaCare Inc. announced that a poster was presented at the American College of Gastroenterology ACG 2020 VIRTUAL showing data that supports and validates previous published economic outcomes. In 2017, Ananya Das, MD FACG FASGE et al, published that a Monte Carlo simulation predicted lifetime savings to the healthcare system of $150,000,000 for a cohort of 100,000 average-risk patients (age>50) when using HygiPrep compared to oral prep for colonoscopy bowel preparation.
After over 12,000 procedures, Real-World Evidence confirms the model's assumptions and supports its outcome – HygiPrep is a dominant strategy compared to the oral prep.
The model assumptions were compared to real-world evidence collected from 108 physicians who prescribed 12,297 HygiPrep procedures in four independent Hygieacare centers working under proprietary, stringent, and validated standard operating procedures developed at Hygieacare. The parameters that were compared included: the price paid by the patients for HygiPrep (no more than $245), the safety profile of HygiPrep (no serious adverse events), adequacy of HygiPrep as indicated by the endoscopist following colonoscopy (97% adequacy), patients' satisfaction from HygiPrep (97% satisfied/very satisfied) and patients' feedback regarding their willingness to repeat HygiPrep for their next colonoscopy (97%).
In conclusion, after over 12,000 procedures, Real World Evidence confirms the model's assumptions and supports its outcome: High-volume colon irrigation Bowel Prep (HygiPrep) is a dominant strategy compared to oral prep.
The Poster was submitted for presentation at the World Congress of Gastroenterology at ACG 2020 by Richard M. Sperling, MD, and William Stassen, MD, from Austin Gastroenterology, Austin, TX, USA, with Orly Levitan, Ph.D., and Dawn B. Burleson, RN, MBA, CRA, from Hygieacare Inc., Norfolk, VA, USA, Pradeep K. Bekal, MD FACG FASGE, from Ohio Gastroenterology and Liver Institute, Cincinnati, OH, USA, and David A. Johnson, MD MACG, from Eastern VA Medical School, Norfolk VA, USA.
“Real-World Evidence has consistently shown that HygiPrep is a dominant strategy over oral prep for colonoscopy procedures,”
said Gavriel (Gabi) Meron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, HyGIeaCare Inc. "Patients have been paying for HygiPrep out of pocket, and we look forward to seeing payers and their patients benefit by approving reimbursement for this recommended and preferred prep."
