Pharmacy Data for Tuberculosis Surveillance and Assessment of Patient Management
Figure 2. Pharmacy-dispensing profiles of tuberculosis (TB) case-patients treated in the health plans and at least partially outside the health plan. Percentage of standard regimen dispensed is plotted against duration of dispensing anti-TB medications for the two groups. A cutoff value of ≥70 days of medication dispensed from health plan–reimbursed pharmacies identifies all but one of the health plan–treated TB case-patients.
