Definition of Unique identifier reporting

Reviewed on 3/29/2021

Unique identifier reporting: In public health, a system that uses information such as the person's birth date and part of their identification number (in the U.S., the social security number) to create a unique code that is reported instead of a name. It is an alternative to named reporting that provides some of the surveillance benefits of reporting by name, such as the elimination of duplicate reports, while reducing privacy concerns by avoiding use of a person's name. For example, HIV testing in Maryland and Texas is done with unique identifier reporting.
