New York State Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative

Early detection of cancer is a key factor in a patient’s chances for recovery as earlier diagnosis leads to earlier treatment. With a philosophy that emphasizes preventive medicine, health plans promote the importance of early detection through appropriate screening tests.

The New York Health Plan Association (HPA) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) worked together on a voluntary project to develop a learning collaborative to improve colorectal cancer screening rates in New York.
