We require all to do an annual tb symptom and risk questionaire.   it's electronic and loads into our database.

Then only select dept and job title do an annual tb QFT
Both of these changes help a lot.

We use a vendor for FFD.

We use an account med group with multiple locations/ED's /urgent care for injury mgt.   they are on one group and if they follow our protocols

We have a 24/7 hotline where you call your injury to or your exposure and they triage your need and we refer you to the right place if you need to be seen

Subject: [MCOH-EH] Growing Pains for Centralized Employee Health

We are facing the challenges of providing employee health services to healthcare system that is growing a very rapid pace.  New clinics, off-site locations, and departments are being added monthly, if not weekly.  I have two questions for the group.

1.      One of our greatest challenges is in administering our tuberculosis testing program.  We currently place PPDs based upon the designated month for the employee’s department.  It is becoming more and more difficult to manually update and maintain a list that is then tied to our electronic employee health record.  How do you administer your TB program? Do you designate testing by department by month, by the employee’s birth date, etc.?  What challenges or advantages have you seen with your particular program method?

2.      If your healthcare system has gone through or is going through rapid growth, how have you managed providing fitness for duty testing and exposure management follow up to your off-site employees? Do you outsource, contract with other hospitals, travel, etc.?
