Tools & Resources -Report on Use of Electronic Medical Records to Facilitate Colorectal Cancer Screening in Community Health Centers

The NCCRT has joined with the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Community Health Centers to issue a new report entitled, “Use of Electronic Medical Records to Facilitate Colorectal Cancer Screening in Community Health Centers.”  The purpose of this study was to gather insights from individuals who use electronic medical records (EMRs) in community health centers about the use of EMRs to facilitate colorectal cancer screening, including for those with a family history of the disease. To meet this goal, the NCCRT commissioned Aeffect Inc. to conduct a series of qualitative interviews with clinicians and technical staff in community health centers (CHCs) across the country. This report provides important recommendations about the barriers, opportunities, and next steps needed to enhance effective use of EMRs in community health centers.
