Treatment strategies for Crohn's disease are targeted toward lifelong management. Optimization of outpatient care is mandatory, because of many clinics facing capacity issues, and, along with routine follow-up of patients with inflammatory bowel disease, is putting increasing pressure on outpatient clinics. Recent studies demonstrate clearly that alternative management strategies are feasible and effective with a high rate of patient satisfaction. It is recommended that future research evaluates the way in which medical care is provided and explores the long-term effects of novel management strategies in IBD. This approach can then be extrapolated to other chronic conditions.
