Current EDW Provider

Staying an EDW Provider
Each partnering health organization must:
          1) Maintain an annual self-renewing contract with Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
          2) Maintain a referral relationship with a network of Early Detection Works providers able to offer all the breast and cervical           continuum needed to complete a diagnosis. This includes: breast and cervical primary care, colposcopy, radiology,           laboratory, biopsy and anesthesia services.
          3) Notify Early Detection Works when new staff are hired. EDW will provide payment request and other training as needed.

Screening Guidelines
Early Detection Works uses the following cancer screening guidelines:

Breast cancer screening guidelines are made available from the US Preventive Services Task Force.

Cervical cancer screening guidelines are made available from the US Preventive Services Task Force - Cervical Cancer, and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology.

To assist in clinical and programmatic decision making, EDW consults with The Kansas Cancer Partnership's Early Detection Work Group which serves as the program's Medical Advisory Board.
