CAHAN and LAHAN
The LA County Department of Public Health is expected to transition from CAHAN to LAHAN to send out its health alerts in July, 2014. LAHAN offers more streamlined communications and an archive of health alerts. CAHAN subscribers may maintain both CAHAN and LAHAN accounts, although there may be some duplication of information.
Los Angeles Health Alert Network (LAHAN)
The Department of Public Health (DPH) shares important public health information with health care professionals in Los Angeles County through its Health Alert Network. DPH sends Health Alerts, Health Advisories, and Health Updates on topics such as communicable disease outbreaks, emerging infectious diseases, immunizations, and drug shortages and recalls. On occasion, information on important but non-emergent topics will also be shared.
