The Evolution of the WHO/NREVSS Influenza Surveillance System: The Challenges and Opportunities that Accompany Electronic Laboratory Data

Description: 

The Influenza Division (ID) in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains the WHO/NREVSS surveillance system, a network of laboratories in the U.S. that report influenza testing results. This system has seen many changes during the past 40 years, especially since the 2009 H1N1 pandemic. This was due in large part to increased adoption of HL7 messaging via PHLIP. PHLIP data is detailed, standardized influenza testing information, reported in near real-time. The data received through this and other report methods is published online in national and regional aggregate form in FluView, a weekly surveillance report prepared by CDC.

Objective

Describe the changes to the World Health Organization/National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (WHO/NREVSS) influenza surveillance system over time, with a focus on the Public Health Laboratory Interoperability Project (PHLIP) and how it has influenced the system
