Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Currently, health care providers, local health officers, and laboratories are
required to report certain information related to communicable disease cases to the
Department of Health Services. DHS and these reporters use the Wisconsin
Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS) to report this information. This
bill requires DHS to correct any inaccurate health information in any electronic
disease surveillance system, currently WEDSS, or other data collection system
related to communicable diseases within 60 days after DHS receives verification of
inaccurate information on the system.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
252.05 (12) of the statutes is created to read:
The department shall correct any inaccurate health information 5
in any electronic disease surveillance system or other data collection system related
to communicable diseases that is accessible to the department within 60 days after 2
receipt by the department of verification of inaccurate information on the system.
