HIV testing should occur much more frequently than a decade ago, given the move in 2006 by the CDC from targeted risk-based testing to routine opt-out testing for all patients aged 13-64.
Microbiological risk-based testing and inspection procedures will be the main focus of the department.
In this instance,the Commission has listened and is moving towards a more risk-based testing regime.
3This risk-based testing strategy has had limited success in accurately diagnosing HCV-positive individuals, with 45% of persons with HCV reporting no known exposure risk.
Because a substantial proportion of HCV infections were identified after testing for clinical indications and few patients reported the 1998 CDC risk indications as a reason for initial testing, these data further support the CDC recommendation for testing all persons in the birth cohort of 1945--1965 in addition to risk-based testing.
1) Many of those with HCV infection do not report injection drug use or having received a transfusion prior to 1992, and they are not detected by current risk-based testing.
The new reference substance SmartCal and a risk-based testing recommendation present a simple and fast solution for testing and documenting instrument performance.
The CDC estimates that implementadon of the one-time test for people born between 1945 and 1965 could detect infections in 800,000 people who would not otherwise be diagnosed based on the current risk-based testing strategy.

8-10) But one cost-benefit study determined that risk-based testing would diagnose more HIV cases than opt-out testing and prevent more HIV infections at a lower gross cost per infection averted.
