REALD for Phase 1 Providers

What is a Phase 1 Provider?

Phase 1 providers are the following types of health care providers. They were required to begin collecting and reporting REALD data in accordance with REALD standards and Oregon Disease Reporting rules on October 1, 2020:

  • Hospitals except for licensed psychiatric hospitals. 
  • Health care providers within a health system. 
  • Health care providers working in a federally qualified health center.


Visit the REALD for Providers page for REALD rules, guidelines and other implementation resources for all providers. Learning opportunities for Phase 1 providers are listed below.

OHA's template and guidance for Phase 1 providers​ explains what providers need to submit if ​they are unable to begin REALD data collection and reporting on October 1, 2020.

​OHA's December 7, 2020 memo provides more information about expectations for enforcement timing and compliance for Phase 1 providers.​

Visit the REALD Workgroups page​ for information about the workgroups that supported Phase 1 implementation work:

  • The Technical Workgroup to discuss necessary updates to EHR systems, public health data reporting options, workflow, and other implementation details, and
  • The Tiger Team to address specific REALD implementation issues identified by the Technical Workgroup.
