CDC informational webinar on syndromic surveillance guidance Tues 12/14

The International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS), with the support of the CDC BioSense Program, is developing guidance for the Meaningful Use objective that relates to syndromic surveillance. In close collaboration with the CDC, ISDS is using a consensus-driven process and engaging key stakeholders to develop the recommendations that will serve as a resource for electronic health record technology vendors, healthcare professionals and hospitals, and public health stakeholders supporting public health syndromic surveillance practice.  The final guidelines will be provided to the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology (ONC) in January 2011. ONC has indicated that this information will be used in the rulemaking process for Meaningful Use Stages 2 and 3.

Now through 12/17/2010, the ISDS is making the interim guidance available for review and readers are welcome to comment at the following

An informational webinar will take place on 12/14/2010 from 1:30-3 PM(EST). The purpose and content of the recommendation will be discussed in detail with participants. This opportunity is intended to assist you in providing constructive comments to ISDS before the 12/17 deadline.
