HealthSIS: a solution for Local Public Health Reporting and Surveillance in KY


Multiple options (1,2) are available for health care provider organizations to receive assistance in demonstrating compliance with meaningful use requirements for public health reporting (3). A certified EHR solution is a requirement for participation in these programs; vast majority of health care providers do not yet have such a solution. No funding programs are currently available to assist public health agencies, especially local public health departments (4). As a result, most providers and local public health agencies are seemingly left without viable options except spending significantly in a tight budget environment.


To describe a real-time reportable disease and surveillance solution focused on local public health department needs and compatible with state health departments, regardless of meaningful use certification status of health care providers.
