EHR-based patient identification, primary care clinician messaging and focused care coordination to reduce delayed diagnosis of colorectal and prostate cancers in patients with abnormal findings

Project: Research project

Project Details


This proposal is to continue our work to address the top priority identified by NMIC of Delayed Diagnosis and Results Management. In year 1 of our work, we delineated the methods to identify thousands of high-risk NMG patients who may not have been referred for diagnostic evaluation or failed to complete the evaluation for possible gastrointestinal malignancy. We are applying for a second year of funding to further test a scalable safety mechanism to follow up when the appropriate plan is not executed and to expand this approach to patients with findings concerning for prostate cancer.
