Introduction

Nationally, a woman's lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer is 13.2%. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women.1 Research has shown that early and prompt breast cancer screening, detection, diagnosis, and treatment can save lives.2-4 Operation Innovation was conceived and implemented at Kaiser Permanente (KP) by a multidisciplinary group of physicians, health care professionals, bargaining unit staff, and administrators from the KP Riverside Service Area to improve breast cancer screening, detection, and treatment services for members and patients.
