HITEQ Highlights Webinar

With the highly mobile modern workforce and travel resuming for the general public, it can become increasingly complicated for health centers to ensure proper reporting of relevant cases to all jurisdictions having oversight on either our operational area or the patient’s residence. To address these concerns, reduce public health reporting burden, and ensure comprehensive reporting for optimal public health management, the CDC electronic case reporting effort had created the eCR Now tool and the MedMORPH FHIR app. As of October 1, 2021, more than 9,400 facilities are actively sending COVID-19 electronic initial case reports to public health using eCR Now and related tools. On the basis of eCR Now, CDC is further developing the MedMORPH (Making EHR Data More Available for Research and Public Health) project to also incorporate additional public health and research support. This webinar introduced health centers to both projects, and showed the roadmap toward automated public health reporting without human intervention.
