Breast cancer screening rates have exceeded the HEDIS top quartile benchmark for the past four years. Improvement has been fueled by collaboration between Denver Health and regional efforts to bring screening services to uninsured patients such as the Colorado Colorectal Screening Program and Women’s Wellness Connection.
