Communicable Disease

The CD program investigates communicable diseases, reported by physicians, hospitals, laboratories,
and occasionally the general public.  Health Department nurses ensure that:

  • Ill individuals receive appropriate education about and treatment for their medical condition
  • Individuals who may be at risk of developing disease receive appropriate prophylactic treatment
  • Diseases are reported to the state of residence of the ill individual, and the community is educated about diseases and their prevention
  • We report and manage reportable diseases through an automated system called PHIMS (Public Health Issue Management System) which allows us to eliminate the hard copy and report via the internet in a standardized format.  In addition, PHRED (Public Health Reporting of Electronic Data) allows us to receive lab reports, from many private and public labs, on a daily basis.  There is no direct funding for the legislatively mandated program.  The entirety of public health’s professional staff is involved in communicable disease control in one form or another.
