PATIENT REPORTING INVESTIGATION SURVEILLANCE MANAGER (PRISM)

PRISM is the communicable disease data system for the State of Wyoming, STD/TB/Viral Hepatitis program. This system allows providers and clinical staff to input their disease reports and patient information directly into the state data system, cutting down on paperwork and time, as well as providing a secure and confidential way to report required surveillance data.  The system is a valuable resource for clinics, providing a means for integrated comprehensive and thorough patient and partner care based on prior episodic information.

For healthcare providers and clinic staff who have taken the PRISM online trainings, see below for PRISM user resources, PRISM 2013 Confidentiality and Usage Agreement, and Training overview.

Please contact Julie Tarbuck for initial PRISM registration, additional user information, upcoming training information, and technical assistance.

  • Partner services which are provided by WY Department of Health staff and partner clinic staff to help prevent the spread of disease.
  • Prevention activities:  healthcare, community organizations, partnerships, materials/resources.
  • Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT) services provided by WY Department of Health staff and partner clinic staff in the event that a partner cannot come in for treatment due to personal cirrumstances
