The Wisconsin Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (WI EPHT) provides data to local health departments through the Analysis, Visualization and Reporting System (AVR). The AVR is a part of the Wisconsin Public Health Information System.
The AVR, also called the secure website, contains the same data topics that are on this public website, but has the added capability of customizing the data with filters, sorting, and visual displays. In addition, confidential datasets can be requested for viewing through this system.
Once you get access, you can view a recorded training on how to customize the county environmental health profiles through the AVR.
How to Obtain Access
Get a WAMS account. Obtain a personal Wisconsin Access Management System User ID (a.k.a. WAMS User ID). To create your unique User ID and password you must register through the Wisconsin Web Access Management System (WAMS) - https://on.wisconsin.gov/WAMS/SelfRegController. (This two-part process involves requesting a Wisconsin User ID and password and activating your account once you receive a confirmation email, so you need to wait for the email that tells you to activate your account.)
If you do not have a HAN account, then register as a Public Health Information Network (PHIN) member. To register as a PHIN member, go to https://phin.wisconsin.gov/phin/mod_logn/index.jsp. Use your WAMS UserID and password to login. Enter your contact information. Once registration is complete, an option to Send Email Request for Authorization will appear. Check the box for "PHIN Analysis, Visualization, and Reporting System." Within four days, you will receive access and a confirmation email. Skip to step 3.
If you have a HAN account, then email DHSWiPHIN@wisconsin.gov and request access to the AVR and EPHT tab. Within four days, you will receive access and a confirmation email.
Go to the AVR to login. Once you receive a confirmation email, go to https://avr.wisconsin.gov. Type in your WAMS ID and password.
