In Connecticut (CT), laboratories are required to report when a patient’s blood level meets or exceeds 10 ug/dL. The primary database for childhood lead poisoning in CT is housed at the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP). This database creates a “case” for each child that is reported; a case then includes lab test results, demographic information, and associated property information such as home inspections and lead abatement. The CLPPP surveillance database has been designed to import data from other sources, including Birth Registry data and Medicaid data. The CLPPP database is planned to become part of the CEDSS system in the future which will further facilitate electronic laboratory reporting and importing data from other sources.
The Adult Blood Lead Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit tracks surveillance data of adults with elevated blood lead levels, including exposure (occupational) information.
CYSHCN - Children and Youth with Special Health Needs Center Data provides data specifically for Yale Center for Children with Special Health Care Needs of Connecticut Children’s Medical Hospital. Individual data includes demographic, diagnostic and family survey data.
