1 E VALUATION P ROJECT S PUTUM C ULTURE C ONVERSION I LLINOIS Carrie Storrs RN, MPH, CPH Illinois Department of Public Health

2 I LLINOIS TB P ROGRAM Illinois excluding Chicago 102 counties with local health departments and/or local TB boards Locally funded; funding and services vary widely Resources for sputum induction in only a few areas Cases treated by PMDs in many areas IDPH: surveillance, oversight & consultation No regulatory authority over local programs Testing by IDPH lab at no cost to programs or providers DOT grants to six highest incidence areas

3 E VALUATION F OCUS S ELECTION Review of program performance on NTIP and other indicators Prioritize problem areas Performance areas lacking national targets State and local resources Anecdotal information related to problem areas Feasibility of demonstrating improvement

4 B ACKGROUND National target: 61.5% of sputum culture positive cases will have documentation of sputum culture conversion within 60 days by 2015 Performance had decreased steadily 57.1% in % in 2008 New web-based TB reporting system implemented in 2008 TB control in Illinois’ largest local jurisdiction moved from a specially (and well) funded TB San District to the county health department in 2007

5 P URPOSE OF E VALUATION Improve patient outcome (response to treatment), as indicated by an increase in the percentage of sputum culture positive cases with documentation of sputum culture conversion within 60 days Analyze data to determine scope and nature of problem Explore strategies to improve program performance

6 O BJECTIVES By 12/31/2009 data will be collected, and by 5/31/10 data will be analyzed to identify the nature and scope of the problem and identify contributing factors and barriers. By August 30, 2010 an evaluation team meeting will be held to review the data analysis and to identify and develop strategies to increase documentation of sputum culture conversion within 60 days of treatment initiation. Increase the percentage of sputum culture positive cases with documentation of sputum culture conversion within 60 days to 50% by % by % by % by % by % by 2014.

7 A CTIVITIES 2008 data for comparison Review quantitative & qualitative data Team meetings to develop strategies Revise case & cohort review tools and emphasize sputum culture conversion in reviews Provide education at regional meetings, workshops, during case consults, etc. Evaluation focus and rationale Strategies and barriers Ongoing monitoring of surveillance data for completeness Develop reports in web based reporting system

11 R ESULTS Nature of problem Completeness of documentation Accuracy of documentation Some lack of sputum collection, usually due to patient unable to produce Patients with extensive disease 2008 conversion increased from 37.1% to 50.2% Cases lacking documentation decreased from 34.7% to 6.4% 2009 conversion 61.3% Exceeded 5 year program target in first year Near National 2015 target of 61.5%

13 R ESULTS County# Cases# Sputum + # Convert  60% Convert  Other combined Total

14 C ONCLUSION With improved accuracy & completeness of documentation, objectives were exceeded Remaining barriers likely to remain unresolved Priority shifted to other performance targets Decision to change evaluation focus
