Abstract An HMO initiative designed to increase the compliance rate for the preventive service (mammography) is described. By looking at Security Health Plan charge data and sending a letter of notification when women are not up-to-date on their screening mammography, we were able to increase the mammography compliance rate from 47\% to 72\%. This system is designed to supplement the preferred method of recommendations by the primary care physician aided perhaps by a chart reminder system. Some problems with the methodology are described.
