Note that most cancer treatment centers will be able to vaccinate for flu. So when a patient is coming in for an appointment, we can do flu shots even though we aren’t primary care.

Do you plan to collect sufficient data to publish your results from doing cold-sending of the kits? If successful, this could be a game changer for getting folks colorectal cancer screening.

Potential policy opportunity: as health centers lean into stool-based screening/home screening options for CRC (FIT and/or cologuard) it will be important for patients to access the follow-up/diagnostic colonoscopy and assuring they don't get stuck in the "loophole" of coding the colonoscopy as diagnostic when it is a completion of the initial screening. Perhaps some state based work among collaborative members could stem form this?
