Increasing Treatment Rates for People with Latent Tuberculosis
This QI initiative was developed to improve the completion rates for LTBI treatment. The treatment rates have historically been below the national goal and average. LTBI treatment is prescribed to prevent someone from developing active TB, and an increase in LTBI treatment completion rates will lead to a decrease in the number of active cases. This project allows for the delivery of a newer treatment regimen, 3HP, which shortens the duration of therapy.
