Message Guide Workgroup (MG)


The Messaging Guide Workgroup is working to prepare the next version of the Syndromic Surveillance Messaging Guide for HL7 Balloting. The goals of the group include:

  • Facilitate the review, comment, and update process for the Implementation Guide for Syndromic Surveillance (derived from the CDC PHIN Messaging Guide for Syndromic Surveillance, version 2.0)
  • Provide a forum to solicit and capture concerns, comments, and update requests from public health professionals as well as vendors
  • Oversee the coordination and development of an updated version of the guide derived from  community comments
  • Shepherd the Implementation Guide through the HL7 balloting process from February 2018 through May 2018 process
