Details:

  • Description:
    Dual-Routine HCV/HIV Testing and Linkage to Care is a testing model that added routine, opt-out annual HIV testing to routine, opt-out HCV testing, opt-in HIV testing and linkage to care for patients in four community health centers. Implementation of dual routine, opt-out HCV/HIV testing includes updating the existing electronic medical reco rd (EMR) system to generate automatic reminders for patients eligible for HCV/HIV tests, and educating and training staff. At check-in, medical assistants determined HCV/HIV testing eligibility and offered opt-out HCV and/or HIV tests. Patients’ responses to the test offers were recorded in the EMR system, and tests were provided to those who consented. Prior to the implementation of the dual routine model, the health centers provided medical assistantinitiated opt-out HCV testing and opt-in HIV testing.
