Policy Scorecard

The Policy Scorecard is a data tool that supports policy decision-making. Policy Scorecards provide context for a country’s CRC policy state and support effective communication with policy decision-makers and other stakeholders. The scorecard can help identify gaps, as well as function as a tool to monitor progress, and to celebrate and recognize the advances being made.

Identifying key policy areas and ideal states:

  • CRC is a national priority and policies exist to address community needs
  • healthcare budgeting for CRC exists
  • programs address timeliness of diagnosis and access to innovative treatments
  • equitable access to diagnosis and treatment exists
  • clinical practice guidelines are developed and updated
  •  reimbursement exists for innovative technologies and treatments

Intermediate steps toward each ideal were chosen as indicators, and publicly available information from reliable sources was used to determine the country’s current status on each indicator. A score was given to each indicator status, and results were calculated for an overall score.
