Studies Reveal Impact of SonarMD Program on Managing IBD

Data from two clinical studies found that people with inflammatory bowel disease — ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease — who were enrolled in one company’s IBD-focused digital care coordination program experienced decreases in both emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations compared with control groups. The data, says the company’s CEO, show the benefits of partnerships among stakeholders to manage chronic gastrointestinal (GI) care.

Established in 2018, SonarMD, Inc. enters into risk-bearing value-based care arrangements with health plans and gastroenterology practices. It currently has five such arrangements with large plans and partners with hundreds of U.S. gastroenterologists.
