Ideal, and there are still mortality and CRC screening discrepancies, particularly among patients of colour. Health systems are well-positioned to address this significant population health issue because the majority of CRC screening takes performed in primary care. The majority of health systems, however, have not made a concerted effort to find and put into place efficient evidence-based intervention techniques that can increase CRC screening rates and decrease disparities. Our project team used a learning community strategy to assist two health systems in southeast Pennsylvania in identifying evidence-based CRC screening interventions for primary care patients, drawing on the Collective Impact Model and the Interactive Systems Framework for Dissemination and Implementation.
