Trailblazing Anorectal Manometry

Published on Apr 3, 2023

Helping the Private Practice Take Charge of a Very Private Problem

Imagine elevating patient care, creating an entirely new treatment path, and tapping into a lucrative revenue stream simply by incorporating a single, affordable medical device into your practice. Imagine enjoying generous reimbursements for an exam that can be delivered by a physician’s assistant in less than 15 minutes without consuming time from busy physicians. Imagine, at the same time, helping patients who traditionally have been too embarrassed or ashamed to open up about a problem to feel safe seeking help and guiding them through the process. Now imagine that the medical device enabling all this often delivers a positive return on investment (ROI) in less than three months.

Will Medspira’s mcompass® Anorectal Manometry system change your practice? If you are a physician who treats a significant number of patients with defecation disorders, incontinence, or related pelvic floor disorders – all growing problems among today’s aging population – it absolutely will have an important impact on your bottom line.

Adding a New Dimension of Care

At long last, mcompass brings anorectal manometry out of the hospital and into the personalized, private practice and clinic setting, where it belongs. A compact, affordable turnkey solution, mcompass blends seamlessly with most existing workflows and adds an important new dimension of care.

With full clinical confidence and a personalized approach, mcompass will help you deliver the advanced exams and often the treatment patients need without long wait times for hospital appointments, which in turn lead to delayed care and escalating problems. Coaxing patients to open up about a personal medical problem such as fecal incontinence or chronic constipation is difficult enough. Referring them to a large medical facility for treatment often leads to intimidation, second thoughts, and potentially patient attrition for your practice. Medspira believes there is a better way.

Those of us who treat these disorders know that anorectal manometry is the first line diagnostic test once systemic disease has been ruled out, providing insight into the cause and potential treatment for these often debilitating conditions. Beyond treatment planning, the patient data gathered during testing also can be leveraged to provide biofeedback to train muscle and sensory control that enable patients to overcome their disorders. In fact, studies show that 62 to 67 % of patients successfully respond to biofeedback, eliminating the need for surgeries and other more invasive treatments. You’ll be pleased to find a range of options to configure a mcompass solution to meet your needs and those of your patient population.

A Manometry Technology Revolution

mcompass is a trailblazing technology—and the innovative physicians using this system are helping to spark an important change in the field. Medspira has redesigned manometry from the ground up to help usher in a whole new way to think about manometric assessment and biofeedback therapy as convenient office-based procedures offered to patients in a more personalized and interactive way—a way that may enhance their understanding and sense of control over a difficult problem, while significantly accelerating treatment timeframes and maintaining patient privacy.

If you have ever considered bringing manometry testing in-house, this is the device that was specially created to remove all the barriers. Bringing the technology to the patient, mcompass is portable, wireless, and weighs only three pounds. Forget the large, unwieldy machines of the past that called for a dedicated testing suite. mcompass can be stored in a cabinet and sets up in less than five minutes in a standard exam room. It is ready for use just seconds after priming. A disposable, multi-channel probe assures precise measurement while eliminating the time-consuming and expensive cleaning process. Patient data appears in real-time on a compact, easy-to-read tablet PC. Simple prompts even guide first-time users through the entire exam process.

With mcompass, anorectal manometry can be practical and profitable for a full range of specialists, from colorectal and GI to OB/GYNs and gerontologists. Those unfamiliar with exam interpretation can share encrypted results with experts through the device’s built-in WiFi. Why continue to refer patients away from your practice when offering manometry is this simple?
