Colorectal Cancer Screening Workflow and Documentation Guides for Health Centers: NextGen & eClinicalWorks
These guides provide focused documentation to assist users of NextGen and eClincalWorks software to improve the process of assessing, documenting, tracking, and following up on colorectal cancer screening. The , developed by NACHC in partnership with the American Cancer Society (ACS), pays particular attention to assessment of personal and family risk and the tracking and follow-up of screening results that are not addressed in the standard NextGen guidance documents. The eClinicalWorks (eCW) guide, developed by Health Center Network of New York with support from NACHC, ACS, and National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, identifies best practice workflows that support appropriate CRC screening and follow up in the EHR.
