Why is eCR important?
Current case reporting can be fragmented, slow, and inefficient. eCR reduces the burden on healthcare providers and facilities to comply with legal reporting requirements and ensures that public health receives relevant reports automatically. This is especially critical during a public health emergency.
Improving how data flows between health care and public health using state-of-the-art health information technology is critical to making health data more useful. With the proliferation of outbreaks and the need for fast access to patient health data, bridging the electronic exchange of data between public health and health care is essential. eCR provides fast, accurate, and reliable data for action.
