To help hospitals and private providers meet Federally mandated Meaningful Use Critera, the Infectious Disease Epidemiology Unit has made available syndromic surveillance and electronic laboratory reporting.
The Wyoming Department of Health uses Health Monitoring Systems (HMS) EpiCenter for all syndromic surveillance activities. The Department requires Wyoming hospitals to contract with HMS for submission of syndromic surveillance data to meet Meaningful Use criteria.
If you are a Wyoming hospital, private provider, or EMR provider and need further information, please contact:

Electronic Laboratory Reporting
Wyoming does have the capability to accept electronic laboratory reports. To make these connections, we follow the process outlined by the Health Level Seven (HL7) Version 2.5.1 Implementation Guide: Electronic Laboratory Reporting to Public Health, Release 1 (US Realm).
For further information please contact Cody Loveland.
Electronic Case Reporting
At this time Wyoming is not accepting e-Case reports from any facilities or providers.
