GI Health Technology Assessment Group

Introduction

This group assesses the effect, properties and the impact of digestive health technology based on evidence-based data through performing systematic review and meta-analyses of diagnostic test accuracy as well as clinical trials. The group will harness the combined expertise of the academic division of gastroenterology at McMaster University’s faculty of Health Sciences, and that of the Farncombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute. The group assesses a spectrum of technologies that include G.I. endoscopy and imaging as well as point-of-care diagnostics using best possible scientific method. The assessments provided by this group are relevant to government, industry as well as healthcare providers.
