Webinar: Learn how to deploy eCR to reduce reporting burden on health care staff without disrupting the clinical workflow

eCR is the automated generation and transmission of case reports from the electronic health record (EHR) to public health agencies for review and action. eCR makes disease reporting from health care to public health faster and easier. It moves data securely and seamlessly—from the EHR at the point of care, to data systems at local and state agencies. eCR also allows public health to more rapidly provide information back to health care professionals. For example, this timely data sharing provides a real-time picture of COVID-19 to support outbreak management.

Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) helps providers fulfill their disease and case reporting requirements and has many benefits to providers, including:

  • Eliminates the need for manual data entry, faxing, or responding to calls from public health agencies.
  • Transfers critical clinical information from providers to public health agencies for disease tracking, case management, and contact tracing.
  • Provides more timely and complete data than manual case reporting.
  • Reduces burden on physicians and staff.
  • Automates case reporting by using data in your electronic health record.
  • The bidirectional exchange of information from public health to providers is much faster and more comprehensive.
  • Supports public health emergency responses.
  • Meets Promoting Interoperability requirements.

KHC and KDHE teamed up to help providers learn more about eCR, learn how to easily implement it, and ultimately to help make Kansas a leader in electronic case reporting. (The webinar was held live on Aug. 4, 2021.)
