Welcome to the California Reportable Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE) Registration Portal for Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) with the California Department of Public Health.

Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) automates public health case reporting by automatically generating and transmitting case reports from Electronic Health Records (EHRs) to public health agencies for review and action. Health care providers and organizations may satisfy their requirement to report conditions listed under Title 17, Section 2500 to public health via electronic case reporting. Electronic initial case reports (eICR) are a complement to electronic lab reports (ELR) and does not replace the requirements for laboratories to continue sending ELRs.

PLEASE NOTE: Healthcare organizations are required to continue sending case reports via your current method of reporting until explicitly notified by CalREDIE that the organization has been approved to send electronic initial case reports in lieu of a paper report. While public health builds capacity to process eICRs for all conditions, please remember that triggering eICRs on all conditions does not equate to local and state public health department users’ ability to review every eICR.

When Filling Out the Registration Form…

  • Registration for eCR is based on the healthcare facility and not intended to register individual providers
  • Healthcare organizations with multiple locations may register one or more locations using the National Provider Identifier (NPI) for the organization.
  • Healthcare control networks (HCCNs):  Please have each of your participating facilities individually register at the CalREDIE eCR Registration Portal. Please contact the CalREDIE eCR Team (CalREDIE@cdph.ca.gov) with any questions.

Updated November 1, 2021:

As of July 1, 2017, CalREDIE declared readiness to meet the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program (PIP) requirements for electronic case reporting (eCR) at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). For questions regarding PIP requirements for CDPH please email: MeaningfulUse@cdph.ca.gov.

To register for CDPH CalREDIE eCR, visit the California Reportable Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE) eCR Registration Portal. Healthcare providers within Los Angeles, San Diego, and Solano counties please check in with your local health department for instructions on how to register and submit eICRs for your jurisdiction.

For submitters who have already registered for eCR and/or have been submitting data prior to November 1, 2021, no further action is needed.

Updated January 26, 2022:

CDPH requires eICR data submitters to use the Association of Public Heath Laboratories (APHL) Information Messaging System (AIMS) and the Reportable Condition Knowledge Management System (RCKMS) to ensure the appropriate reporting. The state of California uses the HL7 electronic initial case report (eICR) standards (R1.1 and R3) for electronic case reporting (eCR). California uses these standards to support the new CMS Promoting Interoperability regulations for eCR. Consequently, CDPH will only receive eICRs in accordance with these standards.
