Abstract

Alert for positive results of hepatitis tests in electronic medical chart is helpful for management of hepatitis carriers at non-hepatology departments. Further attempts for sufficient hepatological consultations in this alert system, such as explaining the test results to the subjects by mailing notification forms with referral to the hepatologists were adopted. The notification forms were re-mailed to the subjects without the reply in 6 months. Aggregate analysis by reviewing the charts of the subjects confirmed that the rate of hepatological consultation was improved from 49% to 72% with further attempts (p<0.001, the chi-square test). Mailing notification forms with referral to the hepatologists can be helpful for facilitating hepatological consultation in alert system of positive test results for HBV and HCV infection in electronic medical chart.
