NEW! patient awareness tool to increase Colorectal Cancer Screening

If you want to increase your screening rates, try this envelope that:

  1. Holds the FIT or FOBT kit and lab slip
  2. Provides information for patients while they are waiting to see their provider
  3. Serves as a reminder to providers to discuss screening options with their patients.

FIT/FOBT testing is a non-invasive procedure that avoids the protocol, prep and sedation that is commonly done for a colonoscopy. It provides the patient with convenience, control and privacy. Why not provide the testing kit in your office for those patients who are resistant to a colonoscopy. Don’t let those patients fall off the radar for colon cancer screening!  Go to: to order your FIT/FOBT envelopes today.
