ACO 19: Colorectal Cancer Screening

2019 – 2021

ACO = accountable care organization

Completion of appropriate colorectal cancer screening tests leads to earlier detection and reduced risk of death from colorectal cancer. Community Care evaluated the percentage of patients aged 50 to 75 who had documented colon cancer screening using colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, fecal immunochemical occult blood, or fecal DNA testing.
