ILHIE Services - Public Health Reporting 

Eligible Hospitals

Streamline Your Reporting to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH)

The Illinois Health Information Exchange’s (ILHIE’s) Public Health Reporting service allows hospitals to submit public health data through a single connection.

Conveniently, one connection facilitates reporting to three systems:

  • Syndromic Surveillance Reporting to BioSense
  • Electronic Laboratory Reporting to I-NEDSS
  • Immunization Registry Reporting to I-CARE

ILHIE has a Secure Connection to IDPH Systems

Hospitals without an existing connection to IDPH are required to submit public health data using the ILHIE to achieve meaningful use. Hospitals typically rely on time intensive, manual public health reporting processes for reporting meaningful use that can lead to data being incomplete and creating delays in submission. To help alleviate this, the ILHIE and IDPH have collaborated to streamline reporting by developing a central hub for submissions.

Save Time and Money; Submit Your Public Health Data Through the ILHIE

ILHIE has a secure connection to IDPH systems. IDPH is ready to accept public health data from EPs participating in the EHR Incentive Program. EPs can save considerable time and potentially avoid high EHR vendor interface development costs by using ILHIE’s Public Health Reporting services. ILHIE Direct and Integrated Direct can be used as a transport mechanism for public health data for as little as $10 per month.
