Colorectal Cancer Prevention Program

Mission

To increase CRC screening rates among persons aged 50 to 75 within partner health systems.

What we do

  • Upon request, work with Data Consultant Contractor to provide all Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) technical assistance with their Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and/or methods on how to improve clinical workflow.
  • Offer assistance to FQHCs, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, in establishing and building on current colonoscopy referral infrastructures with gastroenterology practices and hospitals. Our collective goal is for all age-appropriate patients to have the ability to get screened for colorectal cancer, regardless of insurance status.
  • Provide resources, training, and guidance to identified colorectal patient navigators within each FQHC with the goal of helping patients overcome barriers to colorectal cancer screening. Also, closely track patient navigation activities in order to identify best practices and to measure effect on screening rates.
