The ScreenWise (SW) Program provides funding and technical assistance to health systems partners to implement key evidence-based interventions (EBIs) to reduce structural barriers to screening within health systems. Evidence-based interventions (EBIs) are a collection of strategies for health systems (clinics) to use to help improve breast and cervical cancer screening rates as recommended in The CDC's Community Guide. The main strategies are:
In order to best meet the needs of health system partners, the ScreenWise team has developed a funded learning collaborative model. We recruit health systems partners such as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) through the Oregon Primary Care Association and are also looking for additional organizations, such as coordinated care organizations (CCOs), to help coordinate recruitment for regional learning collaboratives. Participants are paid a one-time lump sum in support of the EBI work. Contact us for more information on when the next learning collaborative will be offered and how to participate.
Requirements and deliverables for participation as a health system partner:
As part of the health systems work for the ScreenWise program, we report annually to CDC on breast and cervical cancer screening rates from partnering health systems that are involved in evidence-based intervention (EBI) quality improvement projects. We also assess baseline and annual status of the EBI projects and collect qualitative data that will inform improvements for operational efforts of the ScreenWise team.
HRSA-funded Health Centers in Oregon report their cervical cancer screening rates publicly. Data from 2016-2018 can be accessed online:
We partner with the Oregon Primary Care Association and these health centers in Oregon to increase their breast and cervical cancer screening rates through the use of evidence-based interventions. See “Increasing Cancer Screening Rates” to learn more.
