“Smart Phone App for COLOnoscopic PREParation”
This is a randomized controlled trial designed to assess the efficacy of a novel smartphone application as an automated reminder tool in improving the quality of bowel preparation for patients undergoing outpatient colonoscopies. The investigators will be comparing the smartphone application to traditional instructions for bowel preparation. The quality of bowel preparation will be assessed using the Ottawa and Aronchick bowel preparation scales.
Bowel Preparation is completed prior to colonoscopy to ensure adequate visualization of the bowel lumen. This requires diet modifications and taking of medications at specified time intervals.
