The Regional Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy Network responds to the requirement for provision of better care to all patients affected by diseases of the digestive system regardless of their place of residence. Moreover it, targets the expected shortage of specialists in Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy in the next years and addresses the desire-need for hospital-based care rationalisation and cost reduction. The starting point of this network is the set-up of a Technical Working Group tasked with the preparation of operational references to support the organization and ways to manage patients with digestive pathologies.
