  • Description:
    The National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) is a nationwide collaboration that enables all levels of public health (local, state, territorial, federal, and international) to share health information required to monitor, control, and prevent the occurrence and spread of state-reportable and nationally notifiable infectious and some noninfectious diseases and conditions.

    NNDSS is a multifaceted program that includes the surveillance system for collection, analysis, and sharing of health data and also policies, laws, electronic messaging standards, people, partners, information systems, processes, and resources at the local, state, and national levels.

    With the evolution of technology and data and exchange standards, CDC now has the opportunity to strengthen and modernize the infrastructure supporting this important public health surveillance system. As part of the CDC Surveillance Strategy, the NNDSS Modernization Initiative (NMI) is underway to enhance the system’s surveillance capabilities to provide more comprehensive, timely, and higher quality data than ever before for public health decision making. Through this multi-year initiative, CDC seeks to increase the robustness of the NNDSS technological infrastructure so that it is based on interoperable, standardized data and exchange mechanisms.

    Through this initiative, by early 2015, CDC’s sexually transmitted diseases, hepatitis, mumps, and pertussis programs are expected to receive timely, complete, and high-quality data from certain jurisdictions through the new CDC Platform (CDCP), a key component of the NMI. When this important milestone is achieved, CDC will increase the number of conditions and reporting jurisdictions using the CDC Platform for NNDSS.

    The CDC Platform is a CDC-built and operated data and software platform that, once complete, will run in a cloud-based hosting environment that is certified by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. The CDCP will allow CDC programs to receive, process, store, access, share, and analyze health-related data, including electronic health record data, on a unified platform to further the agency’s public health goals.
