Every Woman Counts Program Addition of New Data Entry Fields for DETEC

December 6, 2018

Effective for dates of service on or after January 2, 2019, the Every Woman Counts (EWC) Program will implement two new data entry fields in the EWC data entry applications known as DETEC (DETecting Early Cancer) for High Risk for Breast Cancer and High Risk for Cervical cancer. The collection of this data is required by the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

This update will be reflected in the Every Woman Counts Step-by-Step User Guide, to be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
