 IBD Qorus

 

IBD QORUS

IBD Qorus is our national initiative to improve the quality of care delivered to patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, also known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The expanding program is creating a collaborative Learning Health System that empowers healthcare providers to share ideas and report quality metrics to a common platform, enabling researchers to compare patient experiences and treatment outcomes over time and across a variety of care settings. The studies made possible by IBD Qorus will lead to discoveries and insights to enhance health outcomes, as well as quality of life, for IBD patients.
