Electronic Laboratory Reporting:

The Electronic Clinical Laboratory Reporting System (ECLRS) provides laboratories that serve New York State with a single electronic system for secure and rapid transmission of reportable disease information to the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), county health departments and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH).

Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR) | Meaningful Use | CDC

As of July 2014, 479 hospital laboratories were using the message format required under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Meaningful Use incentive program to report clinical test results (), compared with fewer than 200 in 2013. In addition, the number of hospital laboratories testing Meaningful Use–compliant ELR transmissions has more than doubled, to more than 1,300 as of July 2014. Nationally, nearly 3,000 eligible hospitals have registered their intent to send electronic laboratory reports to public health agencies under the Meaningful Use program.

Laboratory reporting is a critical component of disease surveillance. For laboratories that generate reportable condition reports, Minnesota's electronic lab reporting (ELR) system provides a secure electronic means to automate reporting through an electronic network. There are many benefits of ELR including improved timeliness, reduction of manual data entry errors, reports that are more complete reporting and enable public health to respond more quickly to reports. Electronic laboratory reporting has been promoted as a public health priority for the past several years and its inclusion as a meaningful use objective for public health serves as a catalyst to accelerate its adoption.

In an effort toward improving disease surveillance and timely notification of communicable disease reports for public health intervention, the NJDOH mandated electronic reporting of laboratory test results from all licensed state, commercial and hospital laboratories. Electronic laboratory reports are critical for an effective public health response both for routinely reportable diseases as well as potential bioterrorism (BT) agents. Information regarding the registration, testing, onboarding, and transmission of electronic laboratory results can be found on the . Before you begin, please read through the for an overview of the entire Electronic Laboratory Reporting process. In addition to HL7 2.5.1 formatting, electronic lab reporting must use the LOINC (Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes) and SNOMED (Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine) nomenclature standards. More information on these standards can be found in the ELR . Electronic Laboratory Reporting allows laboratories to report the mandatory reportable infectious diseases to the Division of Disease Control in an automated and secure process.

What is Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR)

Electronic Lab Reports (ELR) are reports sent to MDH via electronic files from surrounding labs. When this occurs, the lab result is attached to the existing event in the system (based on patient identifiers and disease). If an event doesn’t yet exist for the person, a new event will be automatically created. When a new ELR is received, users are expected to review the lab report and indicate that the report was received.

Electronic Laboratory Reporting

* Electronic laboratory reporting (ELR) generally refers to the secure, automated messaging of laboratory reports, using HL7 or other formats, sent using one or more electronic communication protocols. Direct Web entry (the manual entering of reports over the Internet by laboratories but not through electronic messaging) is included in this report as ELR because it does not require manual data entry by public health agencies into a surveillance information system or into an ELR repository.

Electronic Lab Reporting - North Dakota Department of Health

Currently the NJDOH Electronic Laboratory Reporting System (ELRS) acts as the data repository of laboratory results and is designed to accept ELR in the CDC-recommended, PHIN-compliant (Public Health Information Network) and meaningful use ready format of Health Level 7 (HL7). The ELRS facilitates conveyance of these results to program areas via several downstream systems such as the Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS), Enhanced HIV/AIDS Reporting System (eHARS), and LeadTrax.
