Timeliness guidelines for GI endoscopy for alarm symptoms

Develop timeliness guidelines for GI endoscopy for alarm symptoms, such as dysphagia, iron deficiency anemia, hematochezia, weight loss

 

This would help GI Endoscopy Units prioritize scheduling and expedite diagnosis of GI cancers. This would decrease the costs of treating cancer, and decrease malpractice suits for delayed diagnosis of cancer.
