    "This document was prepared by CSTE members and staff, with substantial input from CDC staff from the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System project. The primary target audience includes program managers and surveillance staff in state health agencies who are involved with collecting, processing, and analyzing information in electronic format and who need to learn more about the NEDSS concepts and implementation process. The target audience includes primarily epidemiologists and other professional staff with various degrees of computer knowledge and skills. Staff with more technical functions (e.g., computer specialists and programmers) may find the document helpful to understand the purpose of NEDSS, but this is not meant to be a comprehensive technical guidance document." - p. 1
