A Meaningful Journey to Onboard Syndromic Data through a Local HIE


The federal meaningful use initiative is a major driver to the establishment of expanded electronic syndromic surveillance capacity across the United States. Much has been documented about the background and requirements for eligible hospitals to achieve the syndromic meaningful use objectives. However, the role and efforts by public health agencies in the syndromic onboarding process, which varies by jurisdiction, is a significant component of the success of meaningful use. 


This presentation aims to highlight technical approaches, validation activities, outcomes, and lessons learned while onboarding local hospitals through a local health information exchange (HIE) for Meaningful Use Stage 2 syndromic surveillance
