BioSense Participation by Non-Federal Hospitals


BioSense is a national program designed to improve the nation’s capabilities for conducting disease detection, monitoring, and real-time situational awareness. Currently, BioSense receives near real-time data from non-federal hospitals, as well as national daily batched data from the Departments of Defense and Veteran’s Affairs facilities.  These data are analyzed, visualized, and made simultaneously available to public health at local, state, and federal levels through the BioSense application.


In this paper we present summary information on the non-federal hospitals currently sending data to the BioSense system and describe this distribution by hospital type, method of data delivery as well as patient class and patient health indicator.
