Innovation

We are always looking for life-changing ideas. Our doctors participate in research and clinical trials, such as:

  • A pilot study looking at age, gender, screening rates, and other measures to better predict which members are at greatest risk for colon cancer, and to motivate them to get regular screenings.
  • Using data from our electronic medical records system to improve colon cancer screening rates among different ethnic groups so as to better predict and prevent potential gastrointestinal issues among high-risk members.
