Gastroenterology (Stomach and Digestive)

Hospitals report annual procedure volume for gastroenterology (stomach and digestive) procedures including:

  • Lower GI Endoscopy
  • Other Upper GI Procedure
  • Small Intestine and Stomal Endoscopy
  • Upper GI Endoscopy

Experts agree that patients often have better outcomes when their procedure is performed by a surgeon and surgical teams with adequate, ongoing experience performing a particular procedure. However, Leapfrog has not yet established minimum hospital or surgeon volume standards.


Patients Included in the Measure

  • Outpatients (Patients who are admitted and discharged on the same day)

  • Adults and Children
