TI  - Infectious diseases notification practices, Victoria 2013.
PG  - E317-E325
AB  - INTRODUCTION: Infectious disease notification practices in Victoria were reviewed
      to identify areas for potential improvement. METHODS: Confirmed or probable cases
      of certain infectious diseases required to be notified to the Department of
      Health and Human Services (DHHS) Victoria in 2013, excluding elevated blood lead,
      foodborne or water-borne illness with 2 or more related cases and chlamydial
      infection, were analysed according to: notification source of doctor +/-
      laboratory vs. laboratory-only; routine follow-up by public health staff for
      selected conditions vs. not routine; priority for Indigenous status reporting for
      18 priority conditions with a target of >/= 95% completeness vs. other conditions
      with a target of >/= 80% completeness; and urgency of notification (conditions
      requiring immediate [same day] notification vs. conditions requiring notification
      within 5 days). RESULTS: Almost half (49%) the 34,893 confirmed and probable
      cases were notified by laboratory report alone. Indigenous status was complete
      for 48% of cases. Indigenous status was more likely to be completed for
      conditions with active vs. no active follow-up (RR 1.88 (95% CI 1.84-1.92)) and
      priority conditions for Indigenous status reporting vs. other conditions (RR 1.62
      (95% CI 1.59-1.66)). Among conditions without active follow-up, doctor-notified
      cases had more complete Indigenous status reporting than laboratory-only notified
      cases (86% vs. 6%, RR 15.06 (95% CI 14.15-16.03)). Fewer notifications requiring 
      same day notification were received within the legislated time frame (59%) than
      notifications required to be notified within 5 days (90%). DISCUSSION: DHHS
      Victoria handles a large volume of infectious disease notifications. Incomplete
      Indigenous status reporting, particularly for conditions without active
      follow-up, and delayed notification of conditions requiring immediate attention
      warrant attention. These findings will be used to improve notification practices 
      in Victoria. Commun Dis Intell 2016;40(3):E317-E325.
