Influenza Surveillance Web Reporting
The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) has created this influenza reporting website to track and record lab confirmed cases of flu and to replace the fax-based reporting system. Providers and facilities are encouraged to use this secure website to report individual flu case information. This information enables ADH to gain an accurate picture of the impact of the flu on Arkansans generally, and specifically by age groups, geographic location, and type of circulating strains. With this information, ADH can better and more effectively target our response measures and communications to those areas that are being the most seriously impacted.
Signing up is a one-time process; therefore, when reporting a flu case you need only login and enter the patient’s information. Please notice that you can enter more than one facility or provider and different users can report for the same facility if needed.
After you log in, please use ‘Enter Influenza Case Reports’ from the ‘Influenza Cases’ drop down menu at the top of the screen to get started. You can add a new report, save a record to work on it later and view and export your saved record. You can also apply filters to your data, and edit or change your user profile information. Every provider can only view the records they have entered along with aggregate state data.
Please notify us by phone at 501-537-8969 if you suspect an influenza outbreak in a community or institution, and of any suspected influenza patient with a history of travel to SE Asia or any avian flu endemic area.
