Public Health Reporting
Starting 2016, MDH began accepting registrations for two Public Health Reporting measures under Specialized Registry: Case Reporting and Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). MDH continues to accept the following Public Health Reporting measures: Immunization (from EHs and EPs), Lab Reporting (from EHs only), Syndromic Surveillance (from UCC EPs & EHs only), as well as electronic transmissions for Cancer (from EPs only).
An eligible professional and hospital must follow the order described below and register for the first measure that is applicable to their scope of practice.
*As of 01/01/2018, the MDH IIS (ImmuNet) is in conformance with the CDC HL7 2.5.1 Implementation Guide for Immunization Messaging, Release 1.5 and Addendum, including supporting Query/Response, acknowledgement messaging, and the receipt of National Drug Codes (NDC) for newly-administered immunizations.
**You may register for the Case Reporting measure if you report any of the following cases to MDH: infectious diseases, birth defects, injuries (intentional, unintentional, occupational), toxicities, poisonings, and lead.
***MDH did not accept SS data from EPs (since 5/1/2013)
If you need to complete (or request exclusion letter for) one or more of the Public Health Reporting measures, please follow the steps below to start or continue your Active Engagement.
NOTE: EHs/EPs may not meet the Public Health Reporting measures if they:
- Fail to register their intent (begin active engagement) by the reporting period deadline, or - Fail to respond to MDH request to start/continue testing (continue active engagement) within 30 days on two separate occasions.
