With less than a month to go before the start of 2018, let’s check in on the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable’s (NCCRT) ambitious call to action: “80% by 2018.” Nearly four years ago the organization kicked off this initiative to not only raise awareness of the importance of colorectal cancer screening, but to get more people screened.
For the second year, Exact Sciences earns a place in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, an annual list of the fastest-growing North American companies in the technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech sectors. The Technology Fast 500 is based on percentage of revenue growth from fiscal year 2013 to 2016. Exact Sciences ranked 68 on the list of a total 500 companies.
Cologuard orders generate more than just a colon cancer screening test. The process that supports each test is a system that includes not only the “hardware” needed to provide your sample for screening, but all the information and support needed to ensure every patient can complete the test, receive timely results from their ordering provider, and stay informed every step of the way. We call this our Patient Compliance Program – it results in more patients complying, or following through on their intent to get screened for colon cancer – and it’s proven to be essential to the impact Cologuard is having on getting more people screened.
