Developing Systems to Increase Colorectal Screening Rates through Patient Identification

At Mid Coast Hospital (MCH) we aim to increase colorectal screening rates by identifying patients within the Mid Coast Medical Group (MCMG) practices who have not had recommended screening, particularly the high risk patients (per identified parameters) and by creating an effective educational campaign targeting the reluctant insured, newly insured and low-socioeconomic population.

Additionally, we plan to create a sub-arm pilot project which will attempt to educate the community on screening options, including the FIT test. FIT tests will be made available, as will PCP referrals for reluctant individuals.
