Update on the CDC National Syndromic Surveillance Program

The Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 mandated establishing an integrated national public health surveillance system for early detection and rapid assessment of potential bioterrorism-related illness. In 2003, CDC created and launched the BioSense software program. At that time, CDC’s focus was on rapidly developing and implementing Web-based software to collect hospital emergency department data for analysis to detect and monitor syndromes of public health importance.

BioSense Platform Admin Tool Requirements Discussion

The BioSense Platform features a tool giving site administrators control over how their data are shared. Thanks to a workgroup the BioSense Governance Group convened last year, CDC now has a good idea of what data-sharing capabilities users want in this new tool. Michael Coletta and other members of the team will outline the steps being taken to build the BioSense Platform Admin Tool.

Tractable Use Cases for Collaboration in Public Health Surveillance

The mission of the ISDS TCC is to bridge the gap between the analytic needs of public health practitioners and the expertise of researchers from other fields for the enhancement of disease surveillance, including situational awareness of chronic as well as infectious threats and follow-up activities such as case linkage and contact tracing.

Use of Syndromic Data for Enhanced Surveillance: MERS Like-Syndrome

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) BioSense system receives near real-time health care utilization data from number of sources, including DoD and VA outpatient facilities, and nonfederal hospital EDs in the US to support all-hazards surveillance and situational awareness. However, the BioSense system lacks some critical functions such as creating ad hoc definition of syndrome or ad hoc query tool development.

Overcoming Operational Differences to Attain a National Picture for Novel Threats

The May arrival of two cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in the US offered CDC’s BioSense SyS Program an opportunity to give CDC’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and state-and-local jurisdictions an enhanced national picture of MERS surveillance. BioSense jurisdictions can directly query raw data stored in what is known as “the locker.” However, CDC cannot access these data and critical functions, like creating ad-hoc syndrome definitions within the application are currently not possible. These were obstacles to providing the EOC with MERS information.

The National Syndromic Surveillance Program

Join Michael Coletta, CDC Program Manager, for a presentation on the CDC National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP - formerly known as BioSense).  Following a thorough review of the BioSense Program in 2013, CDC initiated the BioSense Enhancement Initiative (BEI) which builds on the past successes, while addressing areas that need improvement, allowing for a national view of syndromic surveillance that will provide many additional public health benefits.
