Electronic Case Reporting (eCR)

Friday, June 17, 2022

Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) will automate public health case reporting by automatically generating and transmitting case reports from Electronic Health Records (EHRs) to public health agencies for further investigation, rather than manually reporting. The electronic case report captures critical clinical and demographic patient data not included in laboratory reports submitted to public health.

eCR builds on interoperability work begun with earlier stages of Meaningful Use (MU). The initial stage of eCR focuses on the initial case report; later stages may include a response from public health to the reporting clinician that may include outbreak information for providers, links to treatment guidelines and recommendations, and other clinically relevant information.
