This study evaluated interventions implemented with women in a health maintenance organization, who had not utilized their annual free mammography referral 45 days (step 2) and 95 days (step 3) after its mailing.
The step 2 evaluation compared mammography utilization for women randomly assigned to receive a brief reminder letter or no reminder: 42% of the reminder group vs 28% of the control group obtained mammograms.
The step 3 evaluation compared utilization for women randomly assigned to receive a second reminder, a letter suggesting a preventive office visit, or telephone counseling: 29% of those who received telephone counseling, 14% of those who received a letter, and 12% of those who received a second reminder obtained mammograms.
