Clinical Medicine Setting up a Virtual Calprotectin Clinic in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Literature Review and Nancy Experience

Abstract : Technological progress, including virtual clinics, web or smartphone-based applications, and assessment of fecal calprotectin (FC) at home has favored the implementation of treat to target strategies for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Although these innovations are promising and have been associated with a significant reduction in health costs, their application in clinical practice is limited. Here, we summarize the most recent literature on virtual clinics and available FC home tests. In addition, we report the experience of IBD patients monitored through the IBDoc ® test at the Nancy University Hospital, focusing on usability testing and patient's satisfaction. This pilot experience shows that a virtual calprotectin clinic doubles adherence rate to FC in IBD patients. This finding is especially clinically relevant in the post-coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic era, with an increasing use of e-health.
