Description

We aim to demonstrate increased chlamydia screening across a large pediatric network using an electronic health record-based intervention. We developed a pop-up notification that alerted providers that chlamydia screening was recommended during a well adolescent visit, when appropriate. We compared chlamydia screening rates before and after the implementation of the alert. The screening rate for chlamydia improved from 2.40% in the year before intervention to 5.01% in the year after intervention ( P \textless .01). In conclusion, an electronic health record intervention was successfully able to significantly increase rates of chlamydia screening across a large pediatric network.
