Rockford Gastroenterology Associates Joins Growing Network of GI Practices to Deploy Revolutionary Patient Engagement Platform for the Treatment of Crohn’s and IBD
Date:3/22/2016

SonarMD, an Illinois-based LLC founded by noted gastroenterologist Dr. Lawrence Kosinski, managing partner of Illinois Gastroenterology Group (IGG), announced today it has entered into a partnership agreement with Rockford Gastroenterology Group of Illinois.

Through this agreement, Rockford Gastroenterology Associates practitioners will be the First gastroenterology practice in Illinois since IGG launched SonarMD to have full access and use of the revolutionary platform, a secure, web-based application that allows clinicians to monitor and respond to their patients’ health status between visits through the ongoing use of electronic health assessment surveys.

Using nationally recognized evidence-based guidelines, the SonarMD application applies a Patient Reported Outcomes score to each survey submission, alerting the physician to potential downward trends in a patient’s condition. With early intervention, those trends can be reversed, resulting in fewer hospitalizations and overall enhanced patient care outcomes.

While providing an immediate benefit to patient participants, the SonarMD platform also deploys sophisticated analytics capabilities, using the collective data generated by patient input over time to help care professionals generate new, better, evidence-based care pathways.

The SonarMD Platform was first deployed for patients at the Illinois Gastroenterology Group (IGG), the largest Gastroenterology practice in Illinois with 45 practitioners. As a managing partner of IGG, Dr. Kosinski has been a pioneer in the development of innovative solutions for population health management. He spearheaded the formation of the first Intensive Medical Home in partnership with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois for the management of Crohn’s Disease, creating a cooperative triumvirate of patient, healthcare provider and payer who all benefit from the program’s success in lowering overall healthcare costs while providing better care delivery and outcomes. The SonarMD Platform is an extension of that career-long commitment to advance better decision-making in the management of patients with chronic gastrointestinal disorders.

Rockford Gastroenterology Associates is part of a national SonarMD platform roll-out which includes some of the nation’s most well-respected practices specializing in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

“SonarMD is very proud to add Rockford Gastroenterology Associates to its national family of quality GI Practices,” noted Dr. Kosinski. “RGA not only represents one of the most longstanding and respected GI practices in the country, but it will now be the first Illinois practice other than IGG to have an IMH program. We are very happy for them and pleased to be working with them.”
