    • Description:
      As part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Surveillance Strategy, the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) Modernization Initiative (NMI) is enhancing NNDSS 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.

      NMI has three key components:

      • developing prioritized message mapping guides (MMGs) for Health Level 7 (HL7) case notifications;

      • developing, maintaining, and upgrading the Message Validation, Processing, and Provisioning System (MVPS), software that validates and processes nationally notifiable disease case notification messages sent by jurisdictions and provisions the data to CDC programs; and

      • providing technical assistance (TA) for implementation of HL7 case notification messages in jurisdictions submitting case notifications to NNDSS.

      • One of the most important processes in the NMI effort is public health agencies (PHAs) successfully implementing HL7 case notification messages based upon each of the new NNDSS HL7 MMGs developed through NMI.
