Building a web-based tool to support clinical decisions in the control of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections.

Bottom Line: This application takes population groups, prevalence rates, parameters for available screening assays and treatment regimens (costs, sensitivity, and specificity), as well as budget limits as inputs.Its output suggests optimal screening and treatment strategies for selected at-risk groups, commensurate with the clinic's budget allocation.Development of this tool illustrates how a clinical informatics application based on rigorous mathematics might have a significant impact on real-world clinical issues.

ABSTRACT
Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) are the agents of two common, sexually transmitted diseases afflicting women in the United States (http://www.cdc.gov). We designed a novel web-based application that offers simple recommendations to help optimize medical outcomes with CT and GC prevention and control programs. This application takes population groups, prevalence rates, parameters for available screening assays and treatment regimens (costs, sensitivity, and specificity), as well as budget limits as inputs. Its output suggests optimal screening and treatment strategies for selected at-risk groups, commensurate with the clinic's budget allocation. Development of this tool illustrates how a clinical informatics application based on rigorous mathematics might have a significant impact on real-world clinical issues.

Mentions: Our application adopts a multi-layer MVC architecture shown in Figure 1a. From left to right, there are: Web Explorer layer, Web Server layerand MySQL Database layer. The Web Explorer layer includes the web pages (representingView) users use to send service requests and receive service responses. Web Serverlayer handles all the business logic to process user's requests. This layer alsocontains a controller component, which accesses application data in MySQL database(not shown in Figure 1). The processed result is stored inmodel components (JavaBeans) and routed back to the controller component, where itconstructs the result page.
