CASES of chlamydia, gonorrhea,
In Indiana, cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are required to be reported to the health department in your area within one business day of diagnosis; healthcare providers should not report cases of herpes or trichomoniasis.
Cases can be reported via the Indiana Confidential Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Report State Form 56459 by fax, or online via the REDCap Survey links below.
Diseases should be reported separately in the appropriate survey (e.g., Gonorrhea cases should be reported in the Gonorrhea survey and NOT in the Chlamydia or Syphilis survey).
Fax numbers for each STD district (where your local health department or affiliated community-based agencies are located) are included on the STD DIS Contact Map.

Indiana Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS) are the backbone of HIV/STI prevention in our state.
DISs follow-up on reported cases of HIV, syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea in Indiana. They can work with your patients to ensure their partners receive testing and treatment.

Here's how to contact a DIS in your county.
EXPEDITED PARTNER THERAPY
Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT) is the practice of treating sexual partners diagnosed with an STI (specifically chlamydia and/or gonorrhea) without an intervening medical evaluation.
EPT is a great tool to reduce barriers and decrease your patient's risk of reinfection.

The Diagnosis, Management and Prevention of Syphilis is an excellent resource for providers as they identify, treat, and report cases of syphilis.
The CDC Syphilis Pocket Guide for Providers is another great tool.
