Colorectal cancer screening is a top priority at UCLA Health. We have implemented system-wide quality initiatives that center around getting every eligible adult screened for colorectal cancer. To boost screening rates, we offer a variety of screening options, implemented a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kit mailing program, involved patient navigators to improve coordination of care for patients with abnormal FIT results, added direct access to colonoscopy and opened new endoscopy units throughout Los Angeles County. Colorectal cancer screening is effective towards colorectal cancer prevention and early detection.
