CRC Screening Best Practices Learning Collaborative

The Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Screening Best Practices Learning Collaborative provides a platform for participating organizations to improve both clinical and economic outcomes for this patient population through the development and implementation of quality improvement projects, best practice sharing, and peer learning.

Participating organizations will work to develop and implement strategies to increase colorectal cancer screening rates among all average risk patients age 45-75 in multi-specialty groups and integrated delivery systems. The Collaborative will create a community of knowledge that can help participants accelerate systematic change and develop care processes that are sustainable.
