2021 GI Outlook (GO) Conference (On-Demand) | August 2021
Release Date: May 2021
Viewing Time:
16 hours

GO 2021 will cover a range of important topics to help facilitate self-examination from a practice perspective, helping you to identify and prioritize important aspects of the current practice of gastroenterology.  GO will optimize your time highlighting critical trends while providing practical resources on what practices have successfully implemented to continue to thrive in the changing U.S. healthcare landscape. 

Participants will enjoy three keynote presentations, breakout sessions on several topic areas, a fireside chat incorporating thought leaders’ perspectives for the ensuing years, and discussions on healthcare policy and regulatory reform.  You’ll also have the opportunity to learn from and participate in discussions about how attempts to alter or eliminate the Affordable Care Act could impact your practice setting.

The ASGE Resource Center will collect participant and industry thoughts, challenges and ideas that evolve around unique circumstances by geographical areas so we can crowdsource collective information garnered throughout GO 2021.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify opportunities to increase the economic viability and sustainability of your practice through new practice models, service lines, staffing configurations and payment models.
  • List new technologies and innovations to increase consumer engagement and expand your practice.
  • Compare and contrast knowledge gained on the changing practice of healthcare as it relates to updated federal rules, quality, and the workforce.
  • Understand the continuum of private GI practices in a post-COVID era and resources needed for future success.

Optimal Viewing Experience in GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
