Communicable disease and other conditions may pose a threat to the public health. Doctors, hospitals, and laboratories must report these as required by the Nebraska Administrative Code (NAC). Chapter 1 of Control of Communicable Diseases Regulations in the NAC sets the requirements to report diseases, poisonings, organisms, and events.
Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR) is the electronic transmission of laboratory reports to public health for reportable diseases and conditions. Many facilities in Nebraska are required to report reportable diseases through automated ELR. Learn more about Electronic Laboratory Reporting.
