Annual Screening in Breast Cancer Survivors Declines

By News Release


This important study highlights the critical role of longitudinal tracking of breast cancer survivors, including mammographic screening. In today's systems and informatics-based records, we are not strategically prioritizing and reaching out to survivors using standardized and highly reliable processes. The downward trend in adherence to annual mammography in survivorship should serve as a call to action for new processes that identify and engage breast cancer survivors. Electronic Medical Records-based registries could serve a pivotal role for long-term follow-up with survivors."
