  • 11.NNDSS Related Roundtable Sessions Defining the Future for NNDSS (June 3) Leveraging the NNDSS infrastructure for exchange of other types of case-based surveillance data New strategies for data presentation and access Methods to make the data more timely and relevant, providing feedback on data quality, maintaining the integrity of the initial data transmitted Increasing CDC’s capacity to onboard states to send HL7-based messages Implementation of ‘Country of Usual Residence’ in the 2019 Tables of National Notifiable Infectious Diseases and Conditions (June 3) Provided background for why 2019 NNDSS tables of infectious diseases and conditions are stratified by “Country of Usual Residence” (COUR) Suggestion to identify a state author to update position statement 11-SI-04 to include updated guidance about the Country of Usual Residence data element (which replaced the foreign resident data element)
  • 12.NNDSS Related Roundtable Sessions (continued) NNDSS Low Incidence and International Quarantinable Disease Verification Protocol: Suggestions for Changes and Enhancements (June 4) Describe the process for CDC to verify low incidence conditions based on the 03-ID-11 PS; proposed enhancement to the CDC MVPS to make the verification process more transparent or update 03-ID-11 PS about low incidence verification Recommendation to discuss low incidence verification processes within NNC Criteria Workgroup (Surveillance Policy Subcommittee) Informatics and CDC Emergency Response: Options for Standardizing Emergency Case Notification Messaging to CDC (June 5) Presented strategies to utilize current NNDSS infrastructure for jurisdictions to submit standardized emergency case data for domestic events, special studies or evolving diseases Presented options to use Generic v2 as a base for emergency response variables, or a stand-alone MMG containing data elements for emergency response

  • 14.Review of approved 2019 CSTE Position Statements: Richard Danila, Barbara Gabella
  • 15.Approved 2019 CSTE Position Statements: Infectious Disease 19-ID-01: Public Health Reporting and National Notification of Plague 19-ID-02: Standardized Surveillance Case Definition for Blastomycosis 19-ID-03: Case Definition for Non-pestis Yersiniosis 19-ID-04: Revision to the Case Definition for National Legionellosis Surveillance
  • 16.Approved 2019 CSTE Position Statements: Infectious Disease (continued) 19-ID-05: Revision to the Standardized Case Definition, Case Classification, and Public Health Reporting for Acute Flaccid Myelitis 19-ID-06: Revision of the Case Definition for Hepatitis C 19-ID-07: Changes to Public Health Reporting and National Notification for Spotted Fever Rickettsiosis (including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) 19-ID-08: Revision to the Case Definition for National Pertussis Surveillance
  • 17.Approved 2019 CSTE Position Statements: Non-infectious Disease 19-MCH-01 – “Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Standardized Case Definition” Creates two tiers: (1) Providers and laboratories report to public health legal authorities, and (2) Public health staff analyze ICD-10-CM coded data from providers and facilities. Does NOT recommend adding to Nationally Notifiable Conditions List. 19-CC-01 – “Nonfatal Opioid Overdose Standardized Surveillance Case Definition” Creates standardized definition, which will encourage comparable estimates across jurisdictions, building upon CDC work. Does NOT recommend adding to Nationally Notifiable Conditions List.

  • 21.Data Standardization Workgroup Co-chairs: Molly Crockett (MA): Molly.Crockett@state.ma.us,  Laura Erhart (AZ): laura.erhart@azdhs.gov   Workgroup charge: To convene epidemiologists and informaticians to develop consensus on common definitions for core surveillance data elements to address jurisdictional variation   Workgroup mission: Improve data quality through the development and application of consensus definitions for the core data elements for general communicable disease surveillance    
  • 22.Data Standardization Workgroup Outputs: Consensus reports pertaining to surveillance processes, definitions of data elements or other practices under consideration Developed CSTE Issue Brief titled “Data Standardization: Dates of Importance to Public Health Surveillance” Data elements in Generic v2.0 and Generic v2.0-based message mapping guides (MMGs) included in brief: Illness (Symptom) Onset Date, Report Dates, Laboratory-Related Dates, (Clinical) Diagnosis Date Where applicable, recommend integration into future updates to GenV2 or as part of GenV3 Aimed at standardizing data elements sent to CDC or used nationally Develop a standardized, repeatable process for reaching a consensus definition   Meeting schedule: Monthly, fourth Friday 1-2 ET, next meeting is July 26   CSTE staff contact: Shaily Krishan (skrishan@cste.org)
  • 23.NMI Evaluation Workgroup Workgroup charge: To convene epidemiologists, informaticians, and surveillance experts from state, local and territorial jurisdictions participating in NMI Message Mapping Guide (MMG) implementation activities, and other key stakeholders to evaluate and identify improvements in processes related to MMG implementation, MMG onboarding, MMG maintenance, and Technical Assistance (TA) Convened in April 2019, meets monthly Next call: July 23, 3-4 ET CSTE staff contact: Shaily Krishan (skrishan@cste.org)
  • 24.NMI Evaluation Workgroup Activities Conduct structured workgroup discussions to develop the NMI Evaluation Assessment to address: Barriers encountered by jurisdictions in the MMG implementation and/ or onboarding process Usefulness of NMI technical assistance (TA) Sustainability of jurisdiction's investments in overall MMG implementation, onboarding and maintenance activities Satisfaction of jurisdictions with the overall experience of MMG implementation, onboarding, and technical assistance Satisfaction of jurisdictions with CDC's efforts to standardize and harmonize MMGs, and to involve jurisdictions in the development and piloting of MMGs Conducted MMG Implementation Listening Session with CSELS, CDC programs and states to discuss challenges that jurisdictions encounter during MMG implementation, and identify methods for CDC to make process improvements
  • 25.NNC Criteria Workgroup First meeting was held on July 16, future meeting schedule coming soon! Contact Alexis Darden to join workgroup (adarden@cste.org) Consider why conditions are nationally notifiable Document criteria for adding/retaining Produce a Policy Brief Once we establish NNC criteria, review all current NNCs through that lens Draft PS to remove all NNCs not meeting retention criteria Consider recommending sections to PS template that authors will complete in the NNC section that explicitly lists how/why it meets the criteria, and perhaps adding a term limit for NNCs to expire, or be renewed
  • 26.Community requests clarification on how SyS data submitted to CDC is being used Findings released at regional or national level? Future plans for data use?
