AbstractThe aim of this study is to facilitate the early detection of colorectal cancer (CRC) by developing a care coordination system that will facilitate both screening and diagnostic processes via e-health, telemedicine, clinical decision support, patient-repor ted risk information, patient education and coordinated care models and technologies. Specifically, the project aims to 1) provide alerts to healthcare providers to help them track CRC screening/diagnosis referrals for persons at normal risk and due for sc reening, as well as those at greater risk due to family history or specific symptoms and signs; 2) present just-in-time, individually tailored education instructions to patients based on PRO data; 3) coordinate care team tasks with EMR/telemedicine integra tion; and 4) coordinate assistance from all support resources, including community health advisors. This approach is especially important for the Latino population along the US-Mexico border in Arizona, who are often seen in federally qualified healthcare clinics.
