Abstract

Laboratory testing by clinicians is essential to outbreak investigations. Electronic health records may increase testing through clinical decision support that alerts providers about existing outbreaks and facilitates laboratory ordering. The impact on laboratory testing was evaluated for foodborne disease outbreaks between 2006 and 2009. After controlling for standard public health messaging and season, decision support resulted in a significant increase in laboratory testing and may be useful in enhancing public health messaging and provider action.
