Evaluation of a Multifaceted Intervention to Reduce Health Disparities in Hepatitis C Screening: A Pre-Post Analysis.

Mamta K Jain, Nicole E Rich, Chul Ahn, Barbara J Turner, Joanne M Sanders, Brian Adamson, Lisa Quirk, Patrice Perryman, Noel O Santini, Amit G Singal,

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) testing in persons born from 1945 to 1965 has had limited adoption despite guidelines, particularly among racial/ethnic minorities and socioeconomically disadvantaged patients, who have a higher prevalence of disease burden. We examined the effectiveness of a multifaceted intervention to improve HCV screening in a large safety-net ... Read more >>

Care coordination for complex cancer survivors in an integrated safety-net system: a study protocol.

Simon J Craddock Lee, Katelyn K Jetelina, Emily Marks, Eric Shaw, Kevin Oeffinger, Deborah Cohen, Noel O Santini, John V Cox, Bijal A Balasubramanian,

BACKGROUND:The growing numbers of cancer survivors challenge delivery of high-quality survivorship care by healthcare systems. Innovative ways to improve care coordination for patients with cancer and multiple chronic conditions ("complex cancer survivors") are needed to achieve better care outcomes, improve patient experience of care, and lower cost. Our study, Project ... Read more >>

Mailed Outreach Invitations Significantly Improve HCC Surveillance Rates in Patients With Cirrhosis: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Amit G Singal, Jasmin A Tiro, Caitlin C Murphy, Jorge A Marrero, Katharine McCallister, Hannah Fullington, Caroline Mejias, Akbar K Waljee, Wendy Pechero Bishop, Noel O Santini, Ethan A Halm,

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) surveillance is associated with early tumor detection and improved survival in patients with cirrhosis; however, effectiveness is limited by underuse. We compared the effectiveness of mailed outreach and patient navigation strategies to increase HCC surveillance in a racially diverse cohort of patients with cirrhosis. We conducted a ...

Screening initiation with FIT or colonoscopy: Post-hoc analysis of a pragmatic, randomized trial.

Caitlin C Murphy, Chul Ahn, Sandi L Pruitt, Amy E Hughes, Ethan A Halm, Samir Gupta, Noel O Santini, Katharine McCallister, Joanne M Sanders, Amit G Singal, Celette Sugg Skinner,

Screening with FIT or colonoscopy can reduce CRC mortality. In our pragmatic, randomized trial of screening outreach over three years, patients annually received mailed FITs or colonoscopy invitations. We examined screening initiation after each mailing and crossover from the invited to other modality. Eligible patients (50-64 years, ≥1 primary-care visit before ... Read more >>

Surveillance for colorectal cancer survivors in an integrated safety-net health system in the United States.

Bijal A Balasubramanian, Katelyn K Jetelina, Michael Bowen, Noel O Santini, Simon Craddock Lee,

Introduction:Guideline-recommended surveillance reduces likelihood of colorectal cancer (CRC) recurrence, yet surveillance rates are low in the United States (US). Little is known about CRC surveillance rates among patients without health insurance and their primary care clinicians/oncologists' attitudes towards surveillance care. Methods:A retrospective study of 205 patients diagnosed with Stage I-III ... Read more >>

Identifying quality improvement targets to facilitate colorectal cancer screening completion.

Simon J Craddock Lee, Stephen J Inrig, Bijal A Balasubramanian, Celette Sugg Skinner, Robin T Higashi, Katharine McCallister, Wendy Pechero Bishop, Noel O Santini, Jasmin A Tiro,

The colorectal cancer (CRC) screening process involves multiple interfaces (communication exchanges and transfers of responsibility for specific actions) among primary care and gastroenterology providers, laboratory, and administrative staff. After a retrospective electronic health record (EHR) analysis discovered substantial clinic variation and low CRC screening prevalence overall in an urban, integrated ... Read more >>

Effect of Colonoscopy Outreach vs Fecal Immunochemical Test Outreach on Colorectal Cancer Screening Completion: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Amit G Singal, Samir Gupta, Celette Sugg Skinner, Chul Ahn, Noel O Santini, Deepak Agrawal, Christian A Mayorga, Caitlin Murphy, Jasmin A Tiro, Katharine McCallister, Joanne M Sanders, Wendy Pechero Bishop, Adam C Loewen, Ethan A Halm,

Importance:Mailed fecal immunochemical test (FIT) outreach is more effective than colonoscopy outreach for increasing 1-time colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, but long-term effectiveness may need repeat testing and timely follow-up for abnormal results. Objective:Compare the effectiveness of FIT outreach and colonoscopy outreach to increase completion of the CRC screening process (screening ... Read more >>

Patient navigation for lung cancer screening in an urban safety-net system: Protocol for a pragmatic randomized clinical trial.

David E Gerber, Heidi A Hamann, Noel O Santini, Suhny Abbara, Hsienchang Chiu, Molly McGuire, Lisa Quirk, Hong Zhu, Simon J Craddock Lee,

The National Lung Screening Trial demonstrated improved lung cancer mortality with annual low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening, leading to lung cancer screening endorsement by the United States Preventive Services Task Force and coverage by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. Adherence to annual CT screens in that trial was 95%, ... Read more >>

Mailed Outreach Program Increases Ultrasound Screening of Patients With Cirrhosis for Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

Amit G Singal, Jasmin A Tiro, Jorge A Marrero, Katharine McCallister, Caroline Mejias, Brian Adamson, Wendy Pechero Bishop, Noel O Santini, Ethan A Halm,

Surveillance of patients with cirrhosis increases early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and prolongs survival. However, its effectiveness is limited by underuse, particularly among racial/ethnic minorities and individuals of low socioeconomic status. We compared the effectiveness of mailed outreach strategies, with and without patient navigation, in increasing the numbers of ... Read more >>

Outreach invitations for FIT and colonoscopy improve colorectal cancer screening rates: A randomized controlled trial in a safety-net health system.

Amit G Singal, Samir Gupta, Jasmin A Tiro, Celette Sugg Skinner, Katharine McCallister, Joanne M Sanders, Wendy Pechero Bishop, Deepak Agrawal, Christian A Mayorga, Chul Ahn, Adam C Loewen, Noel O Santini, Ethan A Halm,

The effectiveness of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is limited by underuse, particularly among underserved populations. Among a racially diverse and socioeconomically disadvantaged cohort of patients, the authors compared the effectiveness of fecal immunochemical test (FIT) outreach and colonoscopy outreach to increase screening participation rates, compared with usual visit-based care.Patients aged ...
