Adjudication 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.
