Honolulu, HI (Vocus) October 9, 2009 -- Kaiser Permanente Hawaii leads the nation in mammography screenings, according to the National Committee on Quality Assurance's (NCQA) Quality Compass® report for 2009.

"Our remarkable performance in breast cancer screening reflects a very strong commitment on our part to saving and improving our members' lives through prevention and early detection," said Executive Medical Director Geoffrey Sewell, MD. "We're all committed to making sure our members get the preventive services they need, and our technology helps us to reach out and encourage this important aspect of care. What being number one in breast cancer screening really means is that women in Hawaii who trust Kaiser Permanente with their care are less likely to die from breast cancer.

The 2009 Quality Compass report showed that, of all reporting health plans, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii had the highest breast cancer screening rate in the nation, with 85.1 percent of women age 42 to 69, or more than 25,100 patients, receiving their recommended mammograms.
