CRCCP 2015–2020 Evaluation Results and Publications
CDC conducted a rigorous evaluation of the CRCCP that was funded from 2015 to 2020. Evaluation results are published in academic journals. The CRCCP Manuscript Summary Series provides key findings for each CRCCP publication.
CDC Evaluation of CRCCP, 2020–2025
CDC is leading a comprehensive evaluation of the CRCCP funded from 2020 to 2025. The evaluation examines how evidence-based interventions are implemented, changes in clinic-level colorectal cancer screening rates over time, and the cost-effectiveness of some interventions. CDC collects standardized data from all awardees for each of their partner clinics and leads special studies to answer key evaluation questions. As analyses are completed, results will be shared here.
The Washington State Department of Health received CRCCP funds and partnered with a large federally qualified health center, HealthPoint, to implement a direct-mail FIT program. HealthPoint provided fecal immunochemical test (FIT) kits to patients who were overdue for colorectal cancer screening.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) administered a Clinic Quality Improvement (CQI) initiative in two federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) serving low-income populations.
Clinic-level colorectal cancer screening rates increased by more than 4% after the first program year.
CDC is evaluating grantee management of the CRCCP, implementation and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, colorectal cancer screening rate changes over time, and the cost-effectiveness of different evidence-based interventions.
CDC evaluators designed an outcome evaluation to measure changes in CRC screening rates over time.
