Tufts Medical Center partners with Medumo for Colonoscopy Education Program
The Medumo team is excited to announce our new partnership with Tufts Medical Center’s Department of Gastroenterology. The focus of this partnership is to help patients who are scheduled for a colonoscopy prepare for their procedure through the digital delivery of timely, digestible instructions with a human touch.
Sample message sent to Tufts Medical Center patients scheduled for a colonoscopy.
Patients scheduled for a colonoscopy will receive timely updates on what they can eat, what makes the prep taste better, how to best prepare for the procedure, details related to their appointment and more.
Information is delivered WITHOUT downloading an app, lowering the barrier for patients to access the information by using channels that are already familiar to patients (SMS/email).
This program will also deliver increased clinical efficiency to the Gastroenterology Department at Tufts MC and reduce undue burden caused by missed appointments, poor prep quality and phone call volume. In a recent Medumo colonoscopy multi-site analysis study (N>4,000), the product had the following clinical efficiency results:
44% reduction in poorly prepped patients
55% reduction in no shows and cancellations
$500K-1M net financial gain
“Working together, Tufts Medical Center’s Department of Gastroenterology and Medumo will offer patients a simple, beautifully designed and effective program in which they will automatically be enrolled in when they are scheduled for an appointment” says Adeel Yang, CEO of Medumo. “It’s important for us that patients and providers alike have all of the information they need for a successful colonoscopy.”
