Alas! Meaningful EHR Certification for Syndromic Surveillance


Review NIST's draft CEHRT test procedure, data and tools for syndromic surveillance with us!

The ONC's 2014 edition of rules for certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) set a new bar for syndromic surveillance messaging capability based on the CDC's PHIN Messaging Guide for Syndromic Surveillance. Since Meaningful use requires eligible hospitals and professionals to use CEHRT, the content and quality of certification processes will impact provider expectations and syndromic surveillance messaging capabilities. Help ensure that 2014 CEHRT align with your business and public health surveillance requirements by attending this webinar and providing feedback on the draft test procedures.

Join ISDS for a presentation of the draft test procedure, data and tools for use in certifying EHR technology in syndromic surveillance messaging. Rob Snelick, Computer Scientist for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Sheryl Taylor, Associate at Booz Allen Hamilton, will be our featured speakers.
