Hepatitis A screening

The University of Maryland and the Montgomery County, Maryland, Advanced Practice Center for Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response are pleased to announce the release of a new version of eMedCheck.

This PDA-based software is designed for screening individuals at a hepatitis A vaccination clinic. The software asks questions about the patient’s medical history and determines whether the patient should be vaccinated. The software tracks the decisions made as well.

Tarrant County (Texas) Public Health tested this for us during a drive-through hepatitis A vaccination clinic on June 20, 2009. We appreciate their collaboration and feedback.
