Your rating: None

This is a comprehensive, practical toolkit for primary care sites to implement more effective colon screening practices. Even though highly effective methods of CRC screening are available across the country, the current rates of screening, and of complete diagnostic examination that should flow from screening, remain inadequate. Thus, the potential benefits of widespread CRC are unrealized. The American Cancer Society has established the goal of 75 percent of the eligible population screened for CRC by the year 2015. This guide will help us reach that goal.

“As of January 1, 2012, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that a health risk assessment (HRA) be completed as part of the Medicare annual wellness visit. Efforts by the AAFP and others to persuade CMS to delay the HRA were unsuccessful, and the requirement became effective without a compliant form for physicians to use.” “To fill this void, the AAFP's practice improvement journal Family Practice Management (FPM) published a questionnaire developed by HowsYourHealth.org. The questionnaire meets the requirements for the HRA and can help you identify health behaviors and risk factors in patients.”
