Improving Tracking of Postdischarge Results of Sexually Transmitted Infection Screening Tests in Hospitalized Adolescents and Young Adults: A Quality Improvement Initiative

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hospitalizations offer chlamydia and gonorrhea screening opportunities for youth who may not seek preventive care. Tracking of screening test results still pending after hospital discharge is an important component of clinical care. This process can be improved by protocol use and enhanced by effective, automated electronic health record tools.
