Improving Clinical Remission Rates in Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease with Previsit Planning
The Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) adopted a Previsit Planning (PVP) model
to identify and discuss symptomatic patients prior to their appointments to identify specific issues that impact disease management.
Using the Model for Improvement framework, the team began a weekly review and made care recommendations of patients with active
disease who were cared for by one physician. Interventions were modified over multiple Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) improvement
cycles to increase the number of providers and to include patients with mild or moderate disease activity. The clinical remission
rate for the Center's patients increased from 77% (n=597) in September 2014 to 83% (n=585) in August 2015 and has been maintained.
