MIRA LOMA, Calif., August 15, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Population health preventative measures drastically reduce cost-per-patient while increasing quality of life, however; many organizations find themselves metaphorically navigating the ocean with a single oar, stagnant in progress on actionable compliance outcomes while HEDIS™ and the need for risk improvements looms. Some feel capped on outcomes or too small to make a difference. A National Colorectal Cancer Round-table initiative objective is for 80% of adults aged 50 and older be regularly screened for colorectal cancer by 2018. Even for organizations with well defined in-reach procedures, many patients ages 50 to 60 only see a doctor when they are ill, limiting the reach of these procedures.
