📝 Post-Event Learnings
On October 17, 2023, NEHI convened experts from across the health care ecosystem for an in-depth discussion related to the findings of our recent report, “Addressing Persistent Disparities in Colorectal Cancer Screening among Racially and Ethnically Diverse Populations.”
Expert panelists offered diverse opinions on a number of areas, including quality, value, and payment, advocacy, research, and innovation in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening.
During the webinar, Claire Cruse, Senior Director of Program Development, highlighted key findings from the report, including the short- and long-term recommendations made in the report. From there, experts discussed data aggregation and how it plays a role in tackling disparities in CRC screening, quality, and payment challenges, including a discussion of the Braidwood decision, and a look ahead to future priorities and topics of interest.
As the findings and the diversity of the panelists indicate, every health care sector needs to come to the table to solve these issues and close disparities in CRC screening.
