EHRs, The Surgeon, and Better Care Coordination for Women at Risk of Breast Cancer


A fundamental piece of a cancer prevention and high-risk management program is breaking down barriers to genetic testing and MRI screening. MRI screening is underutilized and many mutation carriers end up talking about genetic testing only after being diagnosed with cancer. Dr. Kevin S. Hughes, FACS,  breast surgeon and co-director, Avon Comprehensive Breast Evaluation Center at the Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses how surgeons can use EHR technology to better coordinate care for women at higher-risk of developing breast cancer, while reducing their workload. Discover how you can take advantage of existing workflows to identify, manage and track patients who require high risk intervention. Leveraging data already collected in many clinics, surgeons have the capability now to better inform care pathways and collaborate with radiology and oncology care team members.
