Electronic Laboratory Reporting:
Electronic Laboratory Reporting allows laboratories to report the mandatory reportable infectious diseases to the Division of Disease Control in an automated and secure process.
Review North Dakota's list of reportable infection diseases and determine for which reportable diseases your lab does testing. The list of reportable conditions can be found by clicking on this link Reportable Conditions (pdf). See the following website for a complete definition of Rules
Please note that any high priority cases still need to be reported immediately by calling 1.800.472.2180 or 701.328.2378
During the testing phase, traditional disease reporting will need to continue until both the laboratory and Disease Control have verified that the new electronic reporting production environment is working correctly. Transmissions will be via secure message exchange. Currently North Dakota is utilizing a secure ftp site
While Disease Control will be available to provide some assistance with coding reportable conditions, the hospital IT personnel and software vendors will be responsible for most of the coding and implementation .
If you have questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, please put Electronic Laboratory Reporting or call 701-328-3278.
