69H - Enhanced Technology, Enhanced Care: Optimizing Technology and Activating Shared Decision-Making to Improve Colorectal Cancer Screening Rates
Tuesday, March 21
Colorectal cancer is often considered the “most preventable, yet least prevented” form of cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States, and early detection is critical. A choice-based shared decision-making approach can help to improve CRC screening rates and the patient experience. When combined with electronic health record optimizations, health systems have a meaningful opportunity to move the needle on quality improvement, including improving CRC screening rates across populations. Find out about specific EHR optimizations, such as inventory of record and checklists, and how one health system streamlined various processes to get more patients screened, including digital outreach tools.
Note: Joint Accreditation credit will not be provided for this session.
- Understand how to leverage the electronic health record to progress screening goals and meet quality metrics.
- Develop a coordinated approach to educate providers, staff and patients about screening modalities to activate shared decision-making and close screening gaps.
