Decision Support AMPATH
Electronic Medical Records to Improve Patient & Public Health in Rural Kenya
Computer-generated clinical reminders offered to providers will improve compliance with care guidelines and impact outcomes in resource-limited clinics.
The investigators will assess the effects of computer-generated reminders for the 3 cohorts of patients: (1) pregnant women; (2) HIV-exposed infants; and (3) adults and children co-infected with TB and HIV identified from the AMPATH clinics. Patients will be randomized to either receive the reminders as part of a paper summary, or to not have any of the reminders in their summary. Reminders implemented will vary by type of patient population. Comparisons will be made between the intervention and control groups.
