What is eCR?

Electronic Case Reporting (eCR) is the secure creation and transmission of case reports from an electronic health record to public health agencies for disease tracking, case management, and contact tracing. Like traditional reporting, eCR captures critical patient and clinical data regarding demographics, comorbidities, immunizations, medications, and other treatments, but greatly reduces the burden of manual reporting.

Get an overview of eCR and how it works by going through the eCR Module 1, an interactive training module found on our Training page.

For more information on how to implement eCR within your organization, please take a look at the links on the External Resources page.
