Early effect of validation efforts of Massachusetts syndromic surveillance data

Description: 

As a participant in the National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP), the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) has worked closely with our statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE) and National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP) technical staff to collect and transmit emergency department (ED) data from eligible hospitals (EHs) to the NSSP. Our goal is to ensure complete and accurate data using a multi-step process beginning with pre-production data and continuing after EHs are sending live data to production.

Objective

To develop a detailed data validation strategy for facilities sending emergency department data to the Massachusetts Syndromic Surveillance program and to evaluate the validation strategy by comparing data quality metrics before and after implementation of the strategy.
