Explore Best Practices for CRC FIT Outreach Communications
in Support of Increasing Outcomes Effectiveness
Mira Loma, CA, August 15, 2017 (Newswire) Population health preventative measures drastically reduce cost-per-patient while increasing quality of life, however; many organizations find themselves metaphorically navigating the ocean with a single oar, stagnant in progress on actionable compliance outcomes while HEDIS™ and the need for risk improvements looms. Some feel capped on outcomes or too small to make a difference. A National Colorectal Cancer Round-table initiative objective is for 80% of adults aged 50 and older be regularly screened for colorectal cancer by 2018. Even for organizations with well defined in-reach procedures, many patients ages 50 to 60 only see a doctor when they are ill, limiting the reach of these procedures.
“With 1 in 40 exhibiting markers for CRC, providers and health plans have been highly motivated to explore best practices for CRC FIT Outreach Communications in support of increasing outcomes effectiveness. While Industry results for Outreach compliance to screening rates for these programs frequently average 17%, what value would there be to your organization to increase this rate?
