Request for Proposals: Pilot Project for Public Health Case Reporting Using C-CDA
National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) along with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) announce a funding opportunity for state and local health departments to participate in a pilot project for the implementation of public health case reporting from electronic health records (EHR) to public health agencies using Consolidated Clinical Data Architecture (C-CDA).
CDC and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Standards and Interoperability (S&I) Framework, Public Health Reporting Initiative (PHRI) are working to reduce the reporting burden on healthcare providers and public health agencies by harmonizing data elements across public health domains and developing a standardized data structure through the implementation of C-CDA. The PHRI has produced two work products: a set of harmonized data elements and a C-CDA library of templates for several public health conditions, which will be tested and demonstrated at pilot site(s). This pilot will help determine if and how the PHRI products can serve as resources to facilitate implementation of public health case reporting from clinical providers to public health agencies.
If interested, please submit an application to Monica Huang firstname.lastname@example.org at the CSTE National Office by Friday, March 15, 2013.Please click here for additional background information and instructions (pdf) »
