How You Can Help Us
Reports from providers allow us to start investigation on suspect cases of Meningitis and other serious illnesses, rather than waiting on lab confirmation. This helps us limit disease transmission in the community. Unlike laboratories, providers can also provide us with clinical information useful in the contact investigation. Current reporting rates from providers are only 6% in the last two years! Our goal is to increase provider reporting to 15% by 2010.
