Abstract

Background: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published guidelines recommending screening high-risk groups for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). The goal of this study was to determine the impact of computerized clinical decision support and guided web-based documentation on screening rates for LTBI. Design: Nonrandomized, prospective, intervention study. Setting and participants: Participants were 8463 patients seen at two primary care, outpatient, public community health center clinics in late 2002 and early 2003. Intervention: The CDC's LTBI guidelines were encoded into a computerized clinical decision support system that provided an alert recommending further assessment of LTBI risk if certain guideline criteria were met (birth in a high-risk TB country and aged
