ABSTRACT
The article describes TB Net, a tuberculosis-infected migrant tracking and referral project created by a national clinical network of clinicians, called the Migrant Clinicians Network, who treat farmworkers in the U.S. Historically, tuberculosis has been difficult to treat in migrant farmworkers and other mobile populations. The major components of the system are discussed including portable record, toll-free number, binational and bilingual consultation, and statistical database. Along the way, TB Net has addressed many barriers to care experienced by mobile populations such as allowing confidential data transfer between states and among care providers.
