The subsequent healthcare-associated infection (HAI) outbreak response required significant collaboration between healthcare providers and facilities and public health departments (HDs). Following the outbreak response, HDs reported that various challenges with access to patient health information in electronic health records (EHRs) hindered the efficient and rapid identification of potential fungal meningitis cases in healthcare facilities. The fungal meningitis outbreak experience highlights the need to better understand the landscape of granting and using access to EHRs for outbreak investigations. The Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, the Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, and the Office of Public Health Scientific Services at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are partnering with Association of State and Territorial Health Officials and The Keystone Center to evaluate the challenges surrounding HDs access to EHRs in healthcare facilities’ during an HAI outbreak investigation. The evaluation seeks to compile information across states from experts in the public and private sector to assess experiences, identify issues, and seek recommendations for improving HDs access to EHRs during future outbreaks. In addition to a study report, the insights from healthcare facility staff will be used to build a toolkit to help state HDs understand the perspectives and needs of the healthcare facilities related to EHR access. The toolkit will provide perceived barriers, recommendations to overcome those barriers, best practices that support EHR access, and practical tools such as templates, memorandums of understanding (MOUs), and policies. The toolkit will be distributed to HDs, healthcare facilities, and other E:\FR\FM\02DEN1.SGM 02DEN1
