The web-based disease reporting portal allows providers to securely and confidentially submit patient information and laboratory testing online without needing to fax a notifiable disease reporting form or testing data. In addition, the online portal allows providers to keep records of disease reports for tracking purposes. Using the online portal allows for automated integration into your disease surveillance system so that public health officials can respond faster to implement control measures.
The portal is simple, direct, and unconstrained by other applications. It includes a self-registration function so users can access the system quickly and without administrative overhead, and its design makes using it easy to understand without extensive training.
The portal is designed to accept both individual and bulk-load CSV reports for mandated test reporting. A reporting user may only see the reports they have entered, keeping PHI secure, while a reporting administrator may access all reports for their facility and also have permission to activate new users registering for their facility.
