Session ID: 

Enhanced Public Health Reporting Using an HIE Network

1:00pm - 2:00pm Wednesday, 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.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the barriers to timely, complete reporting of notifiable diseases to public health authorities
  • Discuss the policies and requirements for reporting information to public health agencies
  • Define the concept of electronic case reporting in support of public health
  • Explain how a health information exchange network can facilitate electronic case reporting
