Achieving CA’s Public Health Goals with Collaborative Health Data Sharing
California is currently facing a public health crisis around congenital syphilis (CS), yet CS is 100% preventable with timely intervention and treatment.

Health Information Organizations (HIOs) are in a unique position to make data and tools available to local public health jurisdictions (LHJs) and public health communicable disease teams for timely prevention, intervention, and treatment. California law requires providers to report cases of syphilis to LHJs within 1 working day. LHJs participating with an HIO can receive real-time alerts when pregnant patients with syphilis are seen in an ED or admitted to a hospital, including for labor and delivery.

This model, successfully piloted by San Bernardino County and nonprofit HIO Manifest MedEx, allows public health to receive Admit, Transfer, Discharge (ADT) alerts for every pregnant patient with syphilis and coordinate with the care team to ensure testing and treatment are provided.

In this webinar, learn how counties can leverage ADT notifications and longitudinal patient records provided by nonprofit HIOs to address CS and other potential use cases to support public health goals.
