Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) will automate public health case reporting by automatically generating and transmitting case reports from Electronic Health Records (EHRs) to public health agencies for further investigation, rather than manually reporting. The electronic case report captures critical clinical and demographic patient data not included in laboratory reports submitted to public health.
eCR builds on interoperability work begun with earlier stages of Meaningful Use (MU). The initial stage of eCR focuses on the initial case report; later stages may include a response from public health to the reporting clinician that may include outbreak information for providers, links to treatment guidelines and recommendations, and other clinically relevant information.
- Decrease the burden on providers to report
- Eliminate the need for manual data entry
- Deliver more timely, complete, and accurate communicable disease surveillance data.
NDDoH is ready to onboard and receive eCR messages from providers. This will replace provider reporting via phone, fax or direct web portal entry. To learn more about eCR reporting click here.

Promoting Interoperability Program Registration
Click here to register your intent for Electronic Laboratory Reporting, Syndromic Surveillance, and/or Electronic Case Reporting. By clicking here to register you are verifying that your facility/provider is ready to begin testing and validation for the measure(s) they wish to attest for now, OR your facility/provider will be ready within the first 60 days of their EHR attestation period, OR your facility/provider is not currently attesting for Promoting Interoperability Program public health measures at this time but would like to begin participating and are ready to begin testing and validation now. The North Dakota Department of Health reserves the right to reject your registration of intent at a later date if we discover that you are not prepared to begin the onboarding process.
Facility/Providers should not register with the expectation to be queued. Facilities/providers connecting via the North Dakota Health Information Network (NDHIN) are responsible for verifying with the NDHIN that they will be ready to send test messages within their attestation time frame. The NDHIN is not a PHA, and connection does not automatically equate a connection with NDDoH.
