Colorectal Cancer Screening and Risk Assessment Workflow and Documentation Guide for Health Center NextGen Users

Initially developed by Harbor Health Services in collaboration with the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers and NACHC

HITEQ Center 0 2329

This Guide provides focused documentation to assist users of NextGen software to improve the process of assessing, documenting, tracking, and following up on colorectal cancer screening. The Guide gives particular attention to assessment of personal and family risk and the tracking and follow-up of screening results that are not addressed in the standard NextGen guidance documents. This work aims to improve health center compliance with HRSA Uniform Data Systems (UDS) colorectal cancer screening (CRCS) through the development and implementation of workflows that produce accurate and reliable structured data and enable proactive outreach and timely follow-up with patients due for CRCS or follow-up testing. This optimization enables health centers to harness broader evidence-based strategies to improve CRCS compliance, and ultimately, health outcomes.

Improving Diabetes Outcomes

Curated Expert Guidance, Tools, and Resources, Updated September 2019

HITEQ Center 0 37149

As of CDC's 2017 National Diabetes Statistics Report, 30.3 million people, or 9.4% of the total U.S. population, have diabetes. Of these 30.3 million, only 23.1 million are diagnosed—while the other estimated 7.2 million are undiagnosed. Additionally, more than 1 in 3 adults or 84.1 million people in the U.S. have prediabetes, including nearly half of people age 65 and older. According to 2018 UDS data, an estimated 15.1% of Federally Qualified Health Center patients nationwide have diabetes, an increase over recent years. Of these approx. 2.4 million plus patients living with diabetes, approximately 33% have uncontrolled diabetes, with HbA1c equal to or above 9% or have had no test in the year. This has remained relatively stable since 2016. These statistics bring forth the need for improvement in the care of diabetes; several resources and research outcomes are profiled here with specific takeaways for health centers.
