Screening Activity Report (SAR)

The Screening Activity Report (SAR) is an online tool available to primary care physicians who practice as part of a patient enrolment model or practice in the Sioux Lookout Municipality and Sioux Lookout Zone (27 First Nation communities). It provides screening data for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers to help physicians improve their cancer screening rates and appropriate follow-up. It also helps physicians better understand Cancer Care Ontario’s cancer screening guidelines. The report platform is interactive, allowing physicians to quickly find specific cancer screening information for each patient.

Information Provided in the Report

The SAR includes the following reports:

  • Dashboard – a one-page cancer screening summary and a comparison of a physician’s screening rates relative to other physicians in the same Local Health Integration Network and the province.
  • Enrolled and Eligible Patients – an integrated view that tells physicians the breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening status of all of their enrolled patients between the ages of 21 and 74 years.
  • Enrolled Patients by Program – provides the cancer screening–related history for all eligible and enrolled patients, per program:
    • Breast: enrolled patients (ages 50 to 74)
    • Cervical: enrolled patients (ages 21 to 69)
    • Colorectal: enrolled patients (ages 50 to 74)

The information in each report is updated on the 10th calendar day every month to provide more timely screening data.

All of the reports can be exported to either a PDF or Excel file, with the exception of the dashboard which can only be exported as a PDF. When accessing the data to perform comprehensive tasks, physicians should export and save the report to their computer. The old report is always replaced by the most recent version at the time of refresh.

The Screening Activity Report uses eHealth Ontario's ONE® ID to authenticate users.

  • The site must not be accessed from non-secure computer systems, such as a computer in a public library or cyber café.
  • Protecting the privacy of patient information is a shared responsibility. Once the report is downloaded, users are responsible for protecting the information on their systems. This means, at a minimum, keeping computers up-to-date, running anti-virus software and scans, and using encryption.
