Pennsylvania Health Alert Network (PA‐HAN) February 1, 2012

The Pennsylvania Health Alert Network (PA‐HAN) is one of the major ways the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH) rapidly distributes information on emerging public health issues (e.g. disease outbreaks) to health care providers, hospitals, emergency management officials, and other public health agencies. In a typical year, PADOH distributes 20‐25 HAN messages to providers via email, fax, or cell phone, depending on user preference. PADOH feels it is important that all health care providers have access to HAN messages directly or through their health care facility in order to receive critical public health messages. This assures that public health is protected and allows Pennsylvania’s health care providers to give the best care to your patients and community.

In mid‐2011, PADOH switched to a new software vendor to support and improve the PA‐HAN. The updated system was completed in July and the new version of the PA‐HAN can be found at the following link https://han.pa.gov/. During the conversion process, some users were removed from the system and cannot be reinstated to the user list without re‐registering. PADOH therefore requests that any previous user who is not currently receiving HAN messages register as a Health Alert recipient in the new system. In addition, any provider who would like to receive HAN messages for the first time should also register in the new system.
