CSTE’s surveillance/informatics subcommittees and workgroups collaborate with CDC, ASTHO, NACCHO, APHL, PHDSC, PHII, and other organizations to facilitate and increase information sharing within the informatics community.
Other Surveillance/Informatics Activities
  • Position Statements to modify the structure and method of reporting nationally-notifiable conditions to CDC
  • Nation-wide assessments of electronic disease surveillance systems and capabilities.
  • Developing a framework for identifying common and disease-specific data elements for the review of generic and disease specific case report and investigation forms
  • Annual assessments of national progress and barriers to achieving electronic laboratory reporting in all states and territories
  • Participation in the Joint Public Health Informatics Taskforce
