    • Description:
      "Mammography is effective in the early detection of breast cancer, especially among women 50 years and older. Detection and treatment of breast cancer at an early stage of disease can improve survival and yield substantial savings in medical care costs. This manual is a source of basic information on mammography and the intervention strategies and tools that health plans may use to help increase the screening rates. The manual is designed to be user-friendly, practical and adaptable to the needs and capacity of different health plans and will assist health plans to: 1. assess existing barriers to mammography; 2. identify the characteristics of members, providers and health care delivery systems for use in tailoring intervention strategies to increase their effectiveness; 3. identify the population(s) and providers(s) to target for intervention as well as the missed and untapped opportunities to increase mammography rates; 4. select and implement appropriate intervention strategies including those aimed at members, the health care (mammography) delivery system and providers, and the community; 5. monitor and evaluate intervention strategies implemented and use these data to further improve mammography screening rates." - p. 1
