Electronic clinical laboratory reporting for public health surveillance

Perry F. Smith, Guthrie S. Birkhead, J Magnuson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The widespread use of electronic laboratory information systems is making electronic laboratory reporting (ELR) to public health increasingly feasible. ELR increases the completeness and speed of reporting to public health, helps to route reports to the correct jurisdictions, and reduces reporting cost. Nevertheless, implementing ELR presents challenges for both laboratories and health departments. This chapter discusses general and technical considerations in implementing a public health ELR system with a detailed description of experiences with ELR in New York and Oregon.
