CRISP Alerts for COVID-19 Cases


CRISP DC now provides alerts when your patient tests positive or negative for COVID-19, as well as confirmed cases, as reported to DC Health and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH). Full information is available on the CRISP DC website. 

View the COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker demo recording from CRISP DC here (March 2021)


COVID-19 alerts are made available to a patient’s care team based upon:


    A list of positive cases sent to CRISP from DC Health and Maryland Department of Health.

      Positive and negative lab results from LabCorp and Quest lab feeds across the region (These results are currently limited to ordering physicians that are CRISP participants with executed lab request forms within our system).
      Positive and negative results from hospitals performing COVID-19 tests in the District, which are reporting them to CRISP during the state of emergency.

      To view COVID-19 alerts within ENS PROMPT accounts

      1. Navigate to the “Add Filter” drop down at the top of the screen
      2. Select the “Diagnosis Description” category
      3. A list of options will appear to the right of the category, select “contains”
      4. Type the term “COVID” into the open field
      5. Within the “Custom Filter” field, type the desired name of the custom filter then click “Save”
      6. Once you’ve created the filter, alerts for both positive and negative test results as well as confirmed cases will automatically populate
      7. Remember:
        • Saved custom filters will always be available for future use within the “Saved Custom Filter” drop down
        • Saved filters are not automatically applied to your notifications. Upon logging in, you must select and apply your custom filters prior to viewing alerts

      • In the Care Alert widget within Patient Snapshot, users will be able to see if a particular patient has been added to the list of confirmed cases sent to CRISP
