Electronic Case Reporting (eCR)
Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) is the process of automatically generating and transmitting case reports from a healthcare organization's electronic health record (EHR) system to public health agencies for review and action. The California Reportable Disease Information Exchange - Electronic Case Reporting (CalREDIE eCR) module allows health care providers and organizations to more easily comply with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requirement for the reporting of certain diseases and conditions per the California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 17 Section 2500.
CalREDIE eCR replaces traditional paper-based methods of case reporting for many reportable conditions in jurisdictions using CalREDIE. The CDPH CalREDIE eCR module eliminates the need for manual data entry, standardizes what to report when, and delivers more timely, complete, and accurate communicable disease surveillance data.
