    All cases reported to the DRSi follow a case definition as defined in the 2022 Armed Forces Reportable Medical Events Guidelines and Case Definitions. This document can be accessed and downloaded from the DRSi login page.

    The Communicable Dise​ase Toolkit (CDT) was developed to serve as a standardized resource for public health professionals at military treatment facilities (MTFs), provide guidance with outbreak investigation, and aid in RME reporting and surveillance in line with DoD policy. For each RME, this toolkit includes: a standardized reference sheet with detailed information, including clinical and epidemiological data; a flowchart with information about the classification and reporting of cases in DRSi; and an investigation worksheet for the collection of detailed case information.
