Perspective (Who is telling this story?): State Department of Health

Story: All states and Territories have mandated reporting of some conditions to local and/or state public health. NHIN Direct could greatly simplify the process of reporting to the provider's public health jurisdiction. With certain content and operational standards, NHIN Direct could allow automatic reporting from a providers system to local public health without a need for the provider to act.
