Characterizing uterine fibroid diagnosis and treatment in Asian and Pacific Islander patients

This study will characterize fibroid diagnosis rate, and treatment rate within 5 years of diagnosis, by racial/ethnic group (Asian/Pacific Islander, Black, White, Hispanic, Other) and Asian subgroups (Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, other Southeast Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander, other/unspecified Asian). The proposed research is expected to provide some of the first evidence about the burden of fibroids among Asians and Pacific Islanders; and identify fibroid health disparities and/or treatment inequities among Asians and Pacific Islanders compared to other groups. The goal of this research is to ensure that Kaiser Permanente Northern California provides equitable access to high quality screening and surgical care for fibroids.
