Enhancing Surveillance on the BioSense Platform through Improved Onboarding Processes

In 2017, the National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) continued to expand as a national scope data source with over 6,500 facilities registered on the BioSense Platform, including 4,000 active, 1,800 onboarding, and 700 planned or inactive facilities. 2,086 of the active facilities are Emergency Departments across 49 sites in 41 states. The growth of data available in NSSP has been driven by continued enhancements to tools and processes used by the NSSP Onboarding Team.

Data Quality Improvements in National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) Data

The National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) is a community focused collaboration among federal, state, and local public health agencies and partners for timely exchange of syndromic data. These data, captured in nearly real time, are intended to improve the nation's situational awareness and responsiveness to hazardous events and disease outbreaks.

The Evolution of BioSense: Lessons Learned and Future Directions

The BioSense program was launched in 2003 with the aim of establishing a nationwide integrated public health surveillance system for early detection and assessment of potential bioterrorism-related illness. The program has matured over the years from an initial Centers for Disease Control and Prevention–centric program to one focused on building syndromic surveillance capacity at the state and local level.

Importance of Continued Data Quality Assessment of Syndromic Production Data

Once a facility meets data quality standards and is approved for production, an assumption is made that the quality of data received remains at the same level. When looking at production data quality reports from various states generated using a SAS data quality program, a need for production data quality assessment was identified. By implementing a periodic data quality update on all production facilities, data quality has improved for production data as a whole and for individual facility data.
