Kaiser Permanente performed 2 million colonoscopies in 2016*. But our expert care starts before using this procedure.
At Kaiser Permanente, we have a tool called F.I.T. (short for fecal immunochemical test) that you can use from the comfort of home. If blood in the stool is detected, we’ll call you in for a colonoscopy.
The result: A convenient, more comfortable cancer-screening process.
*According to the 2017 HEDIS, or Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, which is used by more than 90 percent of America’s health plans to measure performance on care and service.
