The Colon Cancer Program Assistant, reporting to Principal Investigator and Project Manager, will promote identification of our primary care patients who have not been screened for colorectal (CRC) cancer and are at risk, by utilizing our electronic medical record (EMR), chart review and patient survey at the Center for Asian Health. The Program Assistant will conduct chart review in Cerner Powerworks (EMR) prior to office visit and assess a patient's qualifications for CRC screening by age and history of CRC screening tests, and add chart alert for screening as needed. The Program Assistant will assist patients in completing the survey and explain the CRC screening program. Working along with Patient Navigator, the Program Assistant will explain screening procedures, distribute FIT kit, and outline steps for proper FIT kit return to prescribed patients; the Program Assistant will ensure return of the completed FIT kit with follow up phone calls.
Upon receipt of lab results, the Program Assistant will forward to physician for review and prepare results letter to be sent to patients; positively screened patients will be referred to the Patient Navigator for follow up care.
The Program Assistant, collaborating with Patient Navigator, will assist in scheduling and attending community events, provide patient education, FIT kit distribution to eligible patients, and follow same procedures as primary care patients in ensuring FIT kit return and results letter sent.
Program Assistant will be responsible for HIPAA compliant data entry, assist with resource development, and collaborate with the Patient Navigator on all community and outreach activities.
