October 2015 Newsletter

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Have your eligible patients received their mammograms? 

This October, CSMS-IPA is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

 HEDIS Measurement

Percentage of members ages 50–74 who had a mammogram screening Oct. 1 two years prior to the measurement year through Dec. 31 of
the measurement year.

To achieve 4 or 5 STAR rating achievement, have 74%-83% of your eligible patients receive their mammogram.   Let's strive for 83%+ of all eligible patients to receive a mammogram by year's end.
