A computerized audit of a screening programme to establish rubella immunity


This paper reports the use of a practice computer to help establish rubella immunity in all women that are likely to bear children. The rubella status by serological testing for each woman in the practice together with the date of the test is entered in the computer by ancillary staff as soon as results are obtained. The computer audit can be carried out by practice staff and takes half an hour. The resulting print-out gives details of rubella immunity for all women aged 14—39 years and also for all women at the beginning of pregnancy. Results of successive audits show consistent increases in the numbers of women with established rubella immunity.
