Dr. Marshall and Dr. Narula are implementing MyGut, a digital program that allows patients and healthcare teams to monitor a patients' disease between visits. The electronic reporting tool also gives healthcare providers more detailed information during visits with patients. Once the MyGut program undergoes pilot testing, it will be available nationally to IBD healthcare providers and their patients. The MyGut program is a Crohn's and Colitis Canada's Promoting Access and Centres of Excellence (PACE) initiative.
