Why?

 

It is an Early Surveillance Program (ESP) through a CDC grant in which they are basically tracking certain critical codes for influenza, communicable disease and meningitis. It was added to CHIP-AZ 9.3 as part of a new contract with ADHS.  

 

ADHS is looking at this information each time it is sent so they can put in place preventive measures to prevent epidemic or pandemic occurrences.

 

ESP upload is part of your contract. 

 

How does it work?

 

 

The ESP screen opens if ESP needs to be created / uploaded.  

You need to click three links and follow the instructions:

  1. Click the link Create ESP File for Upload and follow the instructions
    1. Click OK
    2. Click Upload
    3. You will receive a message that says ...files were uploaded to the server.
    4. Click OK.
    5. Click the red X to close the Upload Files screen.
    6. Click the link Click here if file uploaded successfully.

                                                               i.      This resets the reminder date. Not selecting this link will cause reminders to continue.

 

 

What are the critical codes?

 

The codes selected by ADHS to monitor on a weekly basis are: 

 

515.33  Communicable Rash - Varicella - Referred

517.33  Communicable Rash - Rubella/Rubeola - Referred   

543.33  Gastrointestinal - Vomiting and Diarrhea w or w/o fever - Referred

561.33  Meningitis/Encephalitis - Bacterial/Viral - Referred

582.33  Respiratory - Influenza-like Illness (ILI) Referred

 

 It is imperative that these codes be used when they apply.
