SendSS Reporting Training
Disease reporting enables public health follow-up for patients and helps identify outbreaks. This is particularly important to do in a timely way for any disease or condition that may require immediate public health intervention. Disease reporting also provides a better understanding of disease trends and patterns in Georgia to support program and policy decision-making and resource allocation. All Georgia physicians, laboratories, and other health care providers are required by law (OCGA 31-12-2) to report patients with the conditions listed under Notifiable Disease Reporting Requirements. Both laboratory confirmed and clinical diagnoses are reportable within the specified time interval. Notifiable diseases and health conditions can be reported through our electronic disease surveillance system, SendSS. This is a training to inform staff how to report notifiable diseases through SendSS.
