New Jersey has developed an electronic, web-enabled system where public health partners statewide can instantly report and track incidences of communicable diseases. The Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS) facilitates the timely reporting and immediate sharing of pertinent data, thus supporting appropriate public health responses, be they isolated incidences or multi-state outbreaks. Positive laboratory reports of communicable diseases are entered into CDRSS either by electronic laboratory reporting (ELR) transmissions or are entered manually on a daily basis from clinical laboratories and acute care hospitals. Follow up information is added by hundreds of trained users in various public health roles. The CDRSS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and weekly transmissions to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) support national as well as statewide surveillance. The system does not currently allow reporting from individual health care providers.
