Syphilis Outbreak in OK


Outbreak of Syphilis in Oklahoma County:

Update and Announcement of Continuing Education Opportunity on August 23, 2017

Summary

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and the Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) are reminding healthcare providers in the Oklahoma City metro area of an ongoing outbreak of syphilis.  There have now been 190 outbreak-associated cases identified and more than 800 contact investigations have been initiated.  Risk factors associated with the current outbreak include drug use, exchange of sex for drugs or money, and multiple sexual partners. Public health officials are advising increased awareness and testing of persons at risk for sexually-transmitted infections, or those who present with signs and symptoms consistent with the various stages of syphilis. All pregnant women should be tested for syphilis at their first prenatal visit and again during their third trimester. Any identified cases should be rapidly reported to the OSDH HIV/STD Service at (405) 271-4636 for case management and contact investigation. 

A continuing education webinar entitled “A Call to Action: Syphilis in Oklahoma” will be offered August 23, 2017, 11:00 – noon to provide more information about syphilis trends, emerging clinical issues and congenital syphilis. For more information and registration, click here:

PA Applicant


Attention Physician Assistant (PA) Applicants:

If you are applying for a PA license for the first-time in Oklahoma, our Online Application system now supports importing of Uniform Application data from the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB).  This functionality has been available to MDs for some time, but we are now happy to announce that we have added the ability to import applicant data from FSMB.

This is optional to the applicant, not a requirement.   If you already have a PA application stored in the FSMB's Uniform Application system, you may log on there and submit your information to the State of Oklahoma.   You will then be given a "Submit ID" number which you can then use to import all of your information from FSMB into the Oklahoma Online Application system.  This not only saves you some typing, but it also ensures accuracy among all applications you have filed with various states. If you think you might want to apply for licensure in more than one state, you should definitely consider using FSMB's Uniform Application.  With it, you can enjoy the convenience of entering your information only once and other participating states can retrieve it with your approval.

OK Health Dept no longer accepting paper death registrations after August 1, 2017

After August 1st, 2017, the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Vital Records, will no longer accept paper death registrations.  All death registrations must be submitted to the State Registrar via the ROVER electronic registration system. 

 

This is due to a change in Oklahoma law. In accordance with Oklahoma Statutes [63 O.S. § 1-317(a)]:

“No later than July 1, 2017, physicians licensed in this state shall be required to sign and file death certificates using the prescribed electronic system.” Also according to Oklahoma Statutes, a death certificate, “… shall be filed with the State Department of Health within three days after such death”.

 Physicians who still need to register to use ROVER may call the ROVER Helpdesk at (405) 271-5380, Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm, or email AskRover@health.ok.gov any time.
