  1. Surveillance Data in Action:Tuberculosis Indicators Melissa Ehman, MPH Tuberculosis Control Branch (TBCB) Division of Communicable Disease Control Center for Infectious Diseases California Department of Public Health October 15, 2008

  2. Objectives • Review California TB indicators • Consider indicators relevant to HIV/TB • Discuss possible next steps in developing cross-cutting indicators

  3. TB Indicators Project (TIP) • Partnership between TBCB and TB programs of the 16 local health departments (LHDs) with the highest TB morbidity • Formal process for using indicators to evaluate and improve program performance • Implemented beginning in 2000 STATE TIP TEAM Program Liaison Epidemiologist Fiscal Analyst LOCAL TIP TEAM TB Controller Program Manager Epidemiologist Staff

  4. How Did We Create Indicators? • Defined goal areas • Reviewed standards • Identified available data sources • Developed indicators • Assessed indicators according to set criteria: • Ethical • Useful • Representative • Understandable • Data Accessible • Robust (Valid) • Reliable • Set objectives

  7. Culture Conversion TIP Indicator Methods

  8. Culture Conversion TIP IndicatorGoal, Indicator, Objective • Goal C: Ensure timely completion of appropriate therapy for all persons with tuberculosis • Indicator C3: Proportion of sputum culture-positive TB cases with documented conversion to sputum culture-negative within 90 days of initiation of treatment • Objective: At least 70% of sputum culture-positive TB cases will have documented conversion to sputum culture-negative within 90 days of initiation of treatment, for cases counted in 2006

  9. TIP Process • Complete Infrastructure Self-Assessment • Review indicator data • Analyze and plan • Verify problem • Determine reasons for problem • Develop interventions • Implement interventions • Evaluate and reassess

  10. TIP Benefits and Challenges • Improvements in many key areas • Program performance • Staff capacity and communication • Data quality • TB patient care processes • Challenges • Limitations with using TIP indicator data • Competing priorities for LHD and TBCB staff

  11. Outcomes Summary

  12. LHD Assessment of TIP Methods In 10 jurisdictions where long-term TIP outcome data are available, structured interviews were conducted by TBCB staff with LHD key informants. Results On a scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high), TIP participants reported: • Average satisfaction with results : 4.2 • Average contribution of TIP to results: 3.4

  13. Web-Based Indicator Reports • Secure system access ( • Access to California-wide TIP reports for all users • For TIP participants, access to individual county reports • System always available • Tailored reports • By year • By indicator • Data updated several times per year

  14. CDC’s Proposed TB Indicators • A set of indicators will be included in the TB Cooperative Agreements for new funding period 2010-2014 • Several prioritized indicators will be visualized in a web-based system modeled on the TIP online reports, starting 2009 • One new TB indicator intersects with HIV: • Increase the proportion of TB cases with positive or negative HIV test result reported to 88.7% by 2015

  15. Possible HIV/TB Indicatorsfor Discussion HIV Testing of Persons with TB • TB cases alive at diagnosis with positive or negative HIV test result reported TB Testing of Persons with HIV • HIV cases alive at diagnosis with positive or negative TB test result reported

  16. Rationale for Testingfrom white paper by the National TB Controllers Association • HIV testing of TB patients, suspects and contacts: • Detect new HIV infections • Improved outcomes for TB patients with HIV • Make referrals to HIV care and support services • Initiate and coordinate TB and HIV treatment • Prioritize contacts for TB investigation • Educate patients about TB/HIV • TB testing of known HIV-infected patients, and treatment of TB and LTBI: • Prevent transmission among a highly vulnerable population and prevent future TB disease • Educate patients about risks and consequences of TB

  17. Next Steps • Do we agree on the need for indicators? • Discuss possible indicators • What are the next steps to being able to measure them?
