is a workflow process in which two (or more) independent people (or teams) make a determination about diagnoses given certain data and criteria. Each team of adjudicators has access to the same data, but can not see the determinations made by others adjudicators until all determinations are complete.
An Infection Monitor
receives notifications when the adjudication process results in a diagnosis that an infection is present in a case, i.e. all teams assigned agree on a YES diagnosis for either HIV-1, HIV-2, or both. This topic covers the role of the Infection Monitor.
If the tools request diagnoses of both strains, but there is agreement on only one, the infection monitor will be notified, but the case will not be closed until there is agreement about both strains.
Infection Monitor Tab
The Infection Monitor
tab is visible only to administrators and users assigned the Infection Monitor
role. The Case Determination
panel displays all cases, whether (and when) they have been completed, what the diagnosis status was, and on which visit/date the subject was infected.
Infection Monitor Queries
Infection monitors can also access the data programmatically using the built in adjudication schema query CaseDeterminations
which includes the columns listed below by source table.
- AdjudicationCase: CaseID, ParticipantID, Created, Completed
- Determination: Hiv1Infected, Hiv2Infected, Hiv1InfectedVisit, Hiv2InfectedVisit
- Determinations With User Info: Hiv1InfectedDate, Hiv2InfectedDate
Infection Monitor Notifications
Infection monitors receive notifications both in the UI and via email when an infection is detected, whether the case is closed or not. A link is provided to case details in either scenario and by either method.
