Enhanced Public Health Reporting Using an HIE Network
1:00pm - 2:00pmWednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Leveraging an existing, robust health information exchange (HIE) network, we implemented a decision support intervention to facilitate awareness among primary care providers that a notifiable disease should be reported to a local public health agency. In a controlled before-and-after trial, we evaluated the impact of the intervention on notifiable disease reporting rates. In this session, the speakers describe the intervention, methods and results of the trial.
