Functions and benefits
Video length: 1 minute 32 seconds
Various channels are now available for you to interact with the NCSR and manage your patients participation in the screening programs, at a time convenient for you, your practice and your staff.
Save time previously spent calling the NCSR or multiple laboratories to retrieve your patient’s data.
Healthcare provider information is pre-populated to reduce printing/scanning and faxing to the NCSR.
Including nominating a healthcare provider or personal representative (bowel program only), deferring their next screening and opting out on your patient's behalf, from either program.
You can also update your patient's demographics and view program related correspondence.
Order a free bowel test kit to be delivered directly to your patient’s home address if they are overdue for screening and have lost, damaged or misplaced their kit.
You can also bulk order kits for your practice to issue directly to your patients during an appointment. Find out more about the alternative access to kits model.
