EHR Best Practice Workflow and Documentation Guide to Support Colorectal Cancer Screening Improvement with eClinicalWorks
The NCCRT commissioned the Health Center Network of New York (HCNNY) to develop EHR Best Practice Workflow and Documentation Guide to Support Colorectal Cancer Screening Improvement with eClinicalWorks. Please note that this tool is an advanced tool designed to inform those who work directly with electronic health records (EHRs). The overall goal of the project was to identify and document specific best practice workflows that support appropriate CRC screening and follow up and proper utilization of family history data within the eClinicalWorks EHR system (eCW). The guide is also intended to further enable FQHCs to employ existing CRC screening improvement tools to ultimately yield improved patient health outcomes. HCNNY will continue to enhance the guide as further information and/or product capabilities related to CRC screening become known. HCNNY and its participating FQHCs learned a great deal throughout this project and while the challenges of ensuring timely CRC screening for all patients are far from resolved, the detailed recommendations developed provide a roadmap for documentation that will assist health centers in building the necessary foundation for more reliable, actionable information to support their efforts to improve CRC screening rates. We are thankful for the support and collaboration from the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) in developing this tool.
