Maybe something similar to the one completed for epidemiology capacity: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19525777 This would be very useful in position justifications. Thanks, Ben

Clinical Trial Participants 1 M. Fanning In NYS IRB approved clinical trials are exempted from public health reporting -- inclusive of lab reporting. This is a know, but not well quantified, gap in our laboratory reporting. Even if you are able to convince labs to report, they may not be able to report patient identifying information as many research protocols involve providing to the testing lab only coded names (i.e., the study ID).

HIV Diagnostic Testing Algorithm 0 Jessica Simpson Here in NYS we are communicating with reporting laboratories and healthcare providers about the HIV Diagnostic Testing Algorithm, I am curious as to what other state and local health departments are doing regarding this. What methods are you using to communicate with laboratories? Hospital labs? Healthcare providers? What methods have worked best and what have not worked? Are you thinking of recruiting new labs due to the algorithm, if so how are you doing this? I appreciate any information you are willing to share. Thanks!

eHARS and PRISM 0 Erin Metcalf In New Hampshire, we are working on implementing PRISM for STD surveillance.  We understand there are a few ways that PRISM and eHARS data can be linked.  For anyone using PRISM for STD surveillance: do you link PRISM and eHARS?  What are your methods for doing this?  I'd appreciate any information that you might be willing to share.  Thanks!
