Abstract
WITH THE GROWTH OF COMMUNITY-BASED GASTROENTEROLOGISTS, THE CARE OF PATIENTS WITH GASTRIC ULCER DISEASE HAS SHIFTED FROMTHE ACADEMIC CENTER TO THE COMMUNITY. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TWOFOLD: (1) TO DEFINE THE EPIDEMIOLOGIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE POPULATION OF PATIENTS WITH GASTRIC ULCER DISEASE CARED FOR BY A NETWORK OF COMMUNITY-BASED PRACTICING GASTROENTEROLOGISTS (15 COOPERATING CENTERS); AND(2) TO DETERMINE THOSE CHARACTERISTICS PREDICTIVE OF SEVERE ULCER DISEASE. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ACADEMIC- AND COMMUNITY-BASED POPULATIONS WILL BE EXAMINED. THE POTENTIAL OF A NETWORK SUCH AS THIS FOR PROVIDING NEW DRUG OR TECHNOLOGY EVALUATIONS WILL ALSO BE EXPLORED.
