HIV/AIDS Laboratory Information CalREDIE ELR is NOW accepting Electronic Laboratory Results regarding HIV/AIDS information on behalf of CDPH Office of AIDS. Interested HIV ELR submitters should contact CalREDIEHelp@cdph.ca.gov for additional assistance prior to sending HIV laboratory results. Submitters should program their information systems to create HL7 v 2.5.1 ELR messages specifically limited to HIV/AIDS laboratory results. HIV-related results should not appear on the same HL7 message as results other than HIV. Submitting entities should continue to report HIV/AIDS laboratory results by traditional means (non-ELR) in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. Please see the Office of AIDS page for more information: http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/aids/Pages/Default.aspx.
