Orpheus, the Oregon Public Health Epidemiology User System, is the byproduct of an epidemiologic effort in integrating Oregon's reportable communicable diseases for state and local use, into a single application. Orpheus exemplifies health information exchange (HIE), as most case investigations are initiated by the electronic laboratory reports (ELRs), which are automatically imported and accessible to both local and state users, who can work together on cases. Orpheus uses a commercial off-the-shelf application (FileMaker Pro), is compatible with national standards, and leverages the state's enterprise information architecture, such as the Citrix access gateway, to assure that it complies with the highest level of security and confidentiality. If you have questions on Orpheus, please contact the Orpheus tech team at 971-673-1111.
