Idaho Reportable Diseases / Procedures / Forms

In the State of Idaho, licensed physicians, physician assistants, certified nurse practitioners, registered nurses, school health nurses, infection surveillance staff, public health officials, laboratory directors, and coroners are required to report all reportable diseases and conditions. To report a disease or condition to CDH, call the Communicable Disease Control program at (208) 327-8625 or fax report to (208) 327-7100.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule recognizes the legitimate need for public health authorities and others responsible for ensuring public health and safety to have access to protected health information to carry out their public health mission. The Privacy Rule permits covered entities (licensed medical providers, nurses, hospitals, laboratories, etc.) to disclose protected health information, without authorization to public health authorities that are legally authorized to receive such reports for the purpose of preventing or controlling disease, injury, or disability. See 45 CFR 164.512(b)(1)(i).
