Brief Summary:
High quality bowel preparation is essential for successful colonoscopy. This study aimed to assess the impact of reinforced education by Wechat or short message service (SMS) on the quality of bowel preparation. This prospective, endoscopist-blinded, randomized, controlled study was conducted. Reinforced education groups received additional education via reminders by Wechat or SMS 2 days before colonoscopy. The primary outcome was the quality of the bowel preparation according to the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BBPS). The secondary outcomes included polyp detection rate (PDR), adenoma detection rate (ADR), tolerance, and subjective feelings of patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: short message service
The patients will receive standard written instructions on preparing for a colonoscopy plus intervention such as short message system based re-education by one investigator on the day before colonoscopy.
Other: short message service based re-education
The patients will receive standard written instructions on preparing for a colonoscopy plus intervention such as short message system based re-education by one investigator on the day before colonoscopy.

Experimental: Wechat
The patients will receive standard written instructions on preparing for a colonoscopy plus intervention such as Wechat based re-education by one investigator on the day before colonoscopy.
Other: Wechat based re-education
The patients will receive standard written instructions on preparing for a colonoscopy plus intervention such as Wechat based re-education by one investigator on the day before colonoscopy.

No Intervention: Standard preparation instructions
The control arm will receive written instruction on preparing for a colonoscopy per standard of care



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quality of bowel preparation using Boston Bowel Preparation Scale [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The primary outcomes will be the endoscopist's assessment of the quality of preparation using Boston Bowel Preparation Scale


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. polyp detection rate [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The number of polyp prescribed by endoscopist

  2. Patient compliance using a pre-procedure questionnaire [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Patient compliance with preparation instructions self-reported in a pre-procedure questionnaire
