Automated Telephone Calls Improve Completion of Fecal Occult Blood Testing (FOBT)

This program identifies individuals who have not completed an FOBT within the past year; no flexible sigmoidoscopy or double-contrast barium enema (DCBE) within the past 5 years; no colonoscopy within the past 10 years; and no clinician order or referral for FOBT or colonoscopy in the past three months.  These identified individuals will be provided with a general reminder telephone call that includes a brief overview of CRC, benefits of colorectal screening and encourages use of a FOBT kit (National Cancer Institute).
