1 Disease Surveillance Modernization Project (MEDSS) How it works

2 What is MEDSS? An integrated and shared disease surveillance system for the public health in Minnesota –Improve reporting through standardized electronic exchange –Improve monitoring and analyses of data –Improve responses to outbreaks, incidents and trends in disease –Improve reporting to CDC

3 Why do we need a new system? Currently MDH reports and tracks over 50 diseases in different systems These isolated systems: –Are inefficient and costly –Require duplicated data-entry –Cause duplication of data/cases – Makes it hard to analyze and see trends –Are not compliant with new CDC requirements

4 Isolated Systems (current view)

5 Integrated System MEDSS allows each program area, both internal and external partners, to use the system to report cases MEDSS aids in two–way communication and tracking MEDSS will send the report to CDC, instead of multiple reports from different systems in different formats

6 Integrated and Shared System (goal)

7 How this works Electronically Electronic lab reports are sent to MEDSS MEDSS creates a new case or adds lab report to existing person System notifies users of new case Case is reviewed, modified or marked complete and electronically sent to CDC

8 Laboratories LIMS systems Provider, hospital EMR System ELR Case information Investigations Case management Case ascertainment PHIN-MS CDC HL Rhapsody Messaging MEDSS Case reports Notifications LPHHIE Msg Messaging Msg PHIN-MS Msg out Future implementation

9 How this works Manual entry MDH receives a fax or yellow card from local public health or a health care provider MDH creates a new case Cases can be shared and linked to spot outbreaks and track locations Case is reviewed, modified or marked complete and electronically sent to CDC

10 Changes Electronic way to receive reports from providers and labs Secure web interface where you can login to: –Create new case reports –See own reports/cases –Add information about cases and outbreaks –Run reports (case counts, overviews etc) –Print case information –Get a quick overview of the current situation etc Two way communication with systems at LPH (if needed)

11 Questions? MN Dept of Health
