What was measured?
What percentage of medical group members, ages 51 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?
If you have colorectal cancer and your doctor finds it early, you have a very good chance of being cured. When the cancer is found late fewer than half of patients live.
Sharp Rees-Stealy Score: 60.97 percent
State Average: 50.95 percent
