State: Massachusetts

Service: Applied Research & Evaluation

Technical Expertise: Primary Care

JSI is working with MA Department of Public Health and the Massachsetts League of Community Health Centers to evaluate the process of implementing colorectal cancer screening interventions in community health centers through a learning collaborative model.

Using a qualitative data collection approach, JSI will provide a nuanced picture of health centers as they make progress in planning and implementing evidence based interventions (EBIs) to increase colorectal screening. Qualitative data, collected primarily through interviews and focus groups, will serve to complement the performance metrics and clinical measures that participating health centers are required to report.
