ISDS Releases Final Recommendation for Meaningful Use

The International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS), in close collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's BioSense Program, developed syndromic surveillance standards and guidelines that will be used by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to clarify the public health surveillance requirements of the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) Meaningful Use Programs. Development of the ISDS Final Recommendation brought together leaders in syndromic surveillance from throughout the public health community, and gathered input from all stakeholder groups, including eligible providers and hospitals, EHR technology vendors, and public health decision makers.
