    • Description:
      The National TB Indicators Project (NTIP) is a performance monitoring system developed by the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) in collaboration with local TB partners.

      The goal of NTIP is to help TB program officials and staff members:

      • Use data they have already collected and submitted for surveillance to report progress;

      • Monitor achievements toward national objectives;

      • Work with community partners and local program staff to inform decisions on program planning, evaluation, and resource allocation.

      NTIP provides standardized indicators calculated using data reported to the CDC through four different systems:

      1. National Tuberculosis Surveillance System (NTSS) for monitoring TB incidence rates, indicators for case management and treatment, and indicators for laboratory reporting

      2. TB Genotyping Information Management System (TB GIMS) for monitoring the indicator on universal genotyping

      3. Electronic Disease Notification (EDN) System for monitoring indicators on the examination of immigrants and refugees requiring follow-up after their arrival in the United States

      4. Aggregate Reports for Tuberculosis Program Evaluation (ARPE) for monitoring the indicators on the examination and treatment of individuals who are close contacts to TB patients with positive acid-fast bacillus (AFB) sputum-smear results

      This companion is written for TB Data Managers who are responsible for the collection, management, reporting and dissemination of TB data. This manual provides the specific data fields and sample SAS code for calculating indicators provided in the NTIP system. TB Data Managers can use this document as a reference in helping them understand how indicators are calculated and identify incomplete or inaccurate data.
