While electronic laboratory reporting (ELR) has the potential to be both more timely and complete than non-electronic data transmission and direct electronic data transfer can also reduce data input errors, these benefits are often underutilized. A survey of states in HHS Regions IX and X (Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington) led to collaborative efforts to maximize ELR benefits on a regional scale. Collaboration outcomes included the ratification of a regional blood lead HL7 message format and the formation of a multi-state committee to address reporting discrepancies by the large regional labs to multiple states in the regions.
