|Colon Cancer Screening Colon Cancer Surveillance||Other: eGuide to Colonoscopy and in office ipad education|
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
|Official Title:||Integration of an Electronic Education System Into Colonoscopy: Improving Education, Consent and Compliance of Patients at Colonoscopy With an Ipad-based Secure Video Intervention|
- Completion rate of colonoscopy procedure [ Time Frame: 1 day ]Could the colonoscopy be completed in its entirety on the date scheduled?
- preparation quality [ Time Frame: one day ]What was the quality of preparation as measured on the day of colonoscopy, preferably by the Boston Bowel Preparation score.
- adenoma detection rate by provider [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Measurement of adenoma detection rate by provider for study patients.
- Patient satisfaction [ Time Frame: 3 months ]An individual patient satisfaction survey will be provided to patients via the eGuide to Colonoscopy web-portal and will assess their enjoyment and understanding. A patient satisfaction survey is employed by the division to random patients over a three month period. We will assess both of these to determine patient satisfaction with the study intervention.
- Feasibility of intervention in practice [ Time Frame: 1 year ]What is the feasibility of the intervention? Could providers and patients navigate the eGuide? Was theft a problem with having Ipads in the office space? Was the home webportal of the eGuide able to be accessed by patients receiving information in the office?

Experimental: Intervention with eGuide to colonoscopy
The investigators will prospectively enroll and follow patients who receive the eGuide to Colonoscopy and determine benefit and satisfaction with the intervention as part of a pilot study.
Other: eGuide to Colonoscopy and in office ipad education
The investigators will follow patients who receive in office Ipad video education and at home web portal access to the Johns Hopkins eGuide to Colonoscopy.
Other Name: Educational intervention with eGuide to colonoscopy
This study would assess the ability of an e-intervention in patient education and instructions during peri-procedure and procedural day visits to improve the experience of gastroenterology procedures. This study would seek to show that through this alternative educational measure, there would be an increased show rate to colonoscopy appointments, an increased preparation quality, and an increase in patient understanding and satisfaction with the colonoscopy procedure. The investigators will attempt to track procedure completion rate and polyp detection rate for individual providers.
The e-intervention would be multimodal. In the pre-procedure setting, ipad would be able to provide a viewpoint for the video education, a template for the patients (or caregivers) to send themselves links to appropriate instructions to remind them of their obligations by secure email. This e-intervention would supplement traditional printed and website accessible instructions.
