Illinois: Human Reportable Diseases and Procedures

 

In the state of Illinois there are over 60 diseases classified as reportable for the human population. The general reporting procedures for the state are as follows. Once a clinician has diagnosed or even suspects the presence of a disease he/she is required to submit a report to the local health department. The time a clinician has to report a disease varies according to the disease's classification.  The local health department then submits a report to the Illinois Department of Health the time frame here also varies according to disease classification. This data is then transmitted to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) through the Illinois National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (I-NEDSS) and put into the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) database.
