    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To evaluate the association between primary care office systems and mammography utilization by women older than 10 years.

    Design

    Cross-sectional.

    Setting

    An independent-practice association health maintenance organization (HMO) in Massachusetts.

    Participants

    One hundred thirty-two primary care practices, representing 321 physicians and 4378 women with at least 12 months of recent, continuous assignment to a practice participating in the HMO.

    Measurements

    Practice characteristics and procedures for mammography referral and follow-up were ascertained by interviews of office managers.

    For each practice, the proportion of women older than 10 years who received a mammogram during their most recent 12-month period of assignment to the practice was calculated.
