Public Health Syndromic Surveillance (PHSS) Using Inpatient and Ambulatory Clinical EHR Data
ISDS formed a new 10-person Meaningful Use Workgroup with various stakeholder perspectives and expertise in public health practice and medical informatics. Based on the public health uses that ISDS received during the Call for Potential Uses of Public Health Syndromic Surveillance Data and various expertise of its members, the workgroup will develop a new Meaningful Use recommendation.
ISDS Meaningful Use Workgroup: The multi-stakeholder MUse Workgroup will guide the development of ISDS recommendations to support public health authorities in using Meaningful Use certified hospital inpatient and ambulatory EHR data for timely and effective public health prevention and response. Workgroup members will work with ISDS staff to develop the project artifacts, provide advice about the subject, ensure input is obtained from relevant stakeholders, review draft materials, review stakeholder input, and recommend specific guidelines to the stakeholder community within the context of Meaningful Use.
