Case and Contact Management

In Ontario, Diseases of Public Health Significance (DOPHS) are reportable to Public Health to enable effective public health management and disease surveillance.

PHO supports public health units (PHUs) by providing scientific and technical support to their case and contact management investigations for individuals with DOPHS.

Resources to assist in timely data entry into the integrated public health information system (iPHIS) is essential for surveillance reports to monitor and assess disease mitigation strategies that have been implemented.
