ILHIE Services - Public Health Direct 

 
Meaningful use requires the electronic submission of Public Health data. The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has adopted a simplified process to enable the submission of immunization data to I-CARE that satisfies meaningful use criteria. Eligible Professionals (EP’s) can now submit Immunization records to I-CARE by sending an ILHIE Direct message. (Note: this applies to Eligible Professionals only. For information on public health reporting for hospitals please click here)

Here are the five simple steps:

  1. Email ILHIE at hfs.phmu@illinois.gov to express your interest in public health reporting through ILHIE Direct.
  2. Register for an ILHIE Direct address by visiting http://ilhiedirect.net and clicking the link to sign up (if you already have an ILHIE Direct address you do not need an additional one for public health reporting).
  3. Register with I-CARE by visiting http://www.idph.state.il.us/health/vaccine/icarefs.html 
  4. Register your intent to submit public health data for meaningful use by visitng https://murs.illinois.gov/
  5. Send a test message using your ILHIE Direct address (do not send via regular email) to IDPH at immunization@phn.ilhiedirect.net
