Operational Guidance for Complete Hepatitis C Testing
CDC recommends that all samples needed to diagnose hepatitis C be collected in a single visit and HCV RNA testing be performed automatically when the HCV antibody is reactive.
“Automatic” testing happens in the laboratory without additional action on the part of the patient or the healthcare provider.
Automatic testing is critical to increase the number of people diagnosed with current HCV infection who can then be linked to care and curative antiviral therapy. See complete Updated Operational Guidance for Implementing CDC’s Recommendations on Testing for HCV Infection.
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a partnership between interdisciplinary teams of University of Utah specialists and community providers. Through a weekly tele-ECHO conference, University specialists offer case-based learning by consulting with community providers on cases within their current patient populations. Additionally, University specialists and guest presenters conduct brief (15-30 minutes) didactic presentations. Any Wyoming providers are welcome to join the Project ECHO team. Please see https://physicians.utah.edu/echo/clinical-support-areas/hepatitis-clinic for more information.
