V3: Public Health: Tuberculosis Domain Analysis Model, Release 1

Standard Category

  • Implementation Guildes






The National Institutes of Health has funded the Tuberculosis Project (supported by HHSN268200425214C) to develop a methodology for standardizing tuberculosis data collected in the healthcare process such that the data will support multiple secondary uses in the areas of research, surveillance, and quality improvement. As a result a Domain Analysis Model was developed to represent the TB Domain to provide organizations with a standard and consistent way to represent TB information and data.


The Tuberculosis Domain Analysis Model (DAM) represents the clinical processes associated with managing tuberculosis (TB) from the point at which patients present themselves at treatment sites, through diagnosis and treatment. The process model has been split into two submodels: one for diagnosing TB, and the other for treatment.

Business Case (Intended Use, Customers)

CDISC community, Clinicians, Healthcare Informaticists

  • Domain experts working within the ACS and TB domains, such as:
    • Clinicians
    • Researchers
    • Drug, biologic, and device developers
    • Clinical quality improvement specialists
    • Disease surveillance specialists
    • Laboratory personnel
  • Analysts, architects, and developers working on defining specific data interchange semantics (e.g., message specifications) or application APIs
  • Terminologists and ontologists interested in augmenting current work


This work will provide clinicians, Electronic Medical Records vendors and other secondary users the ability to clearly communicate and share Tuberculosis information. As a standard this model can be adopted by organizations for certification processes and promote consistent use of TB terms.

Implementations/ Case Studies (Actual Users)

We are currently piloting this standard with a Center for Disease Control Study.
