It honors Endoscopy Centers for demonstrating their commitment to delivering quality and safety as reflected in their policies, credentialing, quality improvement activities, staff training, competency assessments and more.

CSGA monitors their quality and safety performance by measuring the following key criteria:

  • Patient assessment for procedural risk
