National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System
Public Health Surveillance
Description:The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s Division of Notifiable Diseases and Healthcare Information (DNDHI) helps protect the health of the U.S. population by rapidly identifying and monitoring disease outbreaks and harmful health effects of hazardous conditions and by tracking outbreaks and adverse health effects over time. This information is provided to national, state, and local public health programs for their use in planning and implementing programs to prevent and control disease and injury.
Within CDC, DNDHI leads the integration of CDC’s statistical, epidemiologic, and informatics methods for public health surveillance and evaluation. DNDHI works closely with federal, state, and local public health partners to support and improve timely and efficient collection, sharing, and analysis of healthcare and public health information.
By bringing together the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) and BioSense program, DNDHI helps create administrative efficiencies for CDC, improves CDC program collaboration, and strengthens CDC’s partnerships with federal, state, and local public health authorities and others. The BioSense program collects timely hospital data for syndromic surveillance, and NNDSS collects data on specific diseases and conditions.
Both programs aggregate and present these data for use by CDC programs, state and local public health authorities, and others. They both also work closely with partners— which include all 50 U.S. states, six large local health departments, five territories, and federal partners—to electronically collect public health data.
