Use of EHRs to Identify Patients Who May Benefit from PrEP

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is one of the many tools to help end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. HITEQ’s recent blog identifies strategies to help you leverage your health center’s EHR to highlight disparities related to PrEP uptake for high-risk population and to identify and engage patients to close the PrEP access gap. Some of the strategies include leveraging the capabilities of your EHR to implement standardized templates to take detailed sexual histories, using predictive modeling to anticipate outcomes, and using care plan templates to engage prospective PrEP candidates. You can check out all of HITEQ’s Ending the HIV Epidemic resources here.
