Four Years of experience using IBDoc®

The Mercy University Hospital in Cork was the first hospital to introduce the BÜHLMANN IBDoc® self-testing in routine. After 4 years of use they can show the real benefit of IBDoc® for patients and the clinic. One of their most important finding was the number of unnecessary procedures avoided for patients. On a study of 131 patients using IBDoc®, a total of 53 clinic visits and 62 colonoscopies were not required, reducing the burden of patients with IBD.

“Since introducing IBDoc® we get less calls on the helpline because patients can check themselves if they are concerned they are flaring.”

“Patients love the IBDoc® and have become reliant on it for self-managing their disease.”
