Kansas Health Alert Network (KS-HAN)

KS-HAN is a secure, web-based electronic communication system that enables local and state health and safety entities to share public and environmental health information rapidly. The system allows users to send, receive and discuss information of public and environmental health importance in a secure environment. It also allows for the rapid notification of any and all users in the event of an emergency, when the timely distribution of recommendations on investigation, prevention and treatment is critical.

KS-HAN contains over 3,000 participants from local health departments, hospitals, emergency medical services, animal health, clinics, state agencies, private and public health laboratories and other first responders across the state.

KS-HAN is supported by federal funding from the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program (NBHPP).

If you wish to participate in KS-HAN please email your name, employer, employer phone number, job title or description to mailto: kshanadmin@kdheks.gov
