Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group
Quality Measures for Colorectal Cancer Screening
What was measured?
What percentage of medical group members, ages 50 to 75, have been tested for colorectal cancer? Patients can be tested for the cancer using any one of four tests — the frequency of these tests vary from every year to once every 10 years.
These results are based on patient records from the medical group or HMO.
Why is it important?
Colorectal cancer, or cancer of the colon, is one of the top leading causes of cancer-related deaths for men and women. Screening is so important because there are usually no early signs of colorectal cancer. When colorectal cancer is found early, it is more curable.
Sharp Rees-Stealy score: 68.76 percent
State median: 61.17 percent
