 TN Suptum Culture Conversion

This tool was developed to  to answer the following questions for active TB cases with a positive sputum culture: How many TB cases with a positive culture converted the culture to negative? Of those those that converted to negative, how many converted within 60 day? For those that did not convert, why? This tool requires quantitative analysis and ability to run reports from NEDSS and add formulas to an excel spreadsheet.  No additional training is needed.  Tennessee uses this tool weekly and does not plan to revise it.  If you have questions regarding this tool please contact Jason Cummins at Jason.Cummins@tn.gov
