Electronic Lab Reporting (ELR)
Validate and transform incoming ELR destined to the North Carolina Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NC EDSS) and the North Carolina Lead Surveillance System (NCLEAD).
Transform ELR data from the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health to HL7 formats for transmission to North Carolina Division of Public Health.
Transform disease case notification data from NC EDSS to HL7 format (NMI) for transmission to CDC.
Transform ELR data from the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health to HL7 formats for transmission to CDC (PHLIP).
Do NOT use Rhapsody for external transmissions in or out due to limited number of Communication Points.
All incoming transmissions are required to use PHIN-MS, and use a java program that extracts messages from the PHIN-MS worker queue tables and places them in a directory for input to Rhapsody. All outgoing transmissions are sent via PHIN-MS, using Rhapsody to insert into the PHIN-MS transport queue tables.
Transform case notification data for additional diseases, per the MMG guides, from NC EDSS to HL7 format for transmission to CDC.
