Cancer Screening: Automating Patient Identification and Tracking for Better Outcomes

Less than 4 percent of eligible patients and just 2 percent of smokers are screened for lung cancer in the US—dismally low rates despite wide-ranging efforts to increase participation of at-risk populations in preventive screening programs following studies demonstrating their efficacy at reducing the risk of death.

The good news is that the provider and system-centric barriers that cause these low rates can be overcome by automating the largely ineffective manual processes in place in many facilities and cancer screening programs.

In HealthMyne’s new White Paper, Cancer Screening: Automating Patient Identification and Tracking for Better Outcomes, we address common problems related to developing and implementing cancer screening programs. We hope you find it informative and interesting.
