Collaborative Projects

Use of Novel Tailored Reminders in Primary Care: (Kim Engelman, Ph.D., PI)
This R21 project, funded jointly by the National Cancer Institute and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality uses a tablet computer delivered brief tailored module on colorectal cancer screening for use by primary care patients over the age of 50 years.  Computer algorithms produce messages and follow-up mailing to participants who coordinate screening tests with their regular primary care practices. We have recruited for this project in over 40 urban and rural practices that are part of KPEPR.  Drs. Greiner, Ellerbeck, Daley and James serve as Co-investigators.
