DrChronoEHR has a built in a module to automatically generate and transmit electronic initial case reports from the EHR of subscribing clients, based on clinical content entered. This module is developed based on the requirements set forth by Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) Informatics Messaging Services (AIMS) platform. A set of Trigger Tables is stored and maintained from the CDC/AIMS and they are updated as new RCTC codes are released and implemented using each trigger code set's Effective Date.
Practices that choose to subscribe to Automated Electronic Case Reporting should reach out to DrChrono support to enable eCR for their account. After eCR has been enabled or your account, ensure that you have direct messaging set up as this is a prerequisite for enabling eCR. This module requires providers to subscribe to direct mail for the sending of their eCR data.
After ensuring that direct messaging has been set up, navigate to Account > Account Settings and click Services. There should be a section titled Electronic Case Reporting (see screenshot below). Ensure that the PHA email address is secure, for example, a work email address instead of a Gmail account.
Practices will then set up the PHA Direct Email address and select which providers are participating in Electronic Case Reporting. To set up eCR for the entire Practice Group or for individual providers, click the dropdown menu to the right of Applicable User and select either Practice or Selected Providers, depending on who you want to have eCR functionality for.
