STD*MIS is an application provided to state and local health departments, upon request. The intent of this application is to address the most common issues facing an STD program in its efforts to manage the data that it receives from labs, providers, clinics, disease intervention specialists (DIS), etc. Additionally, a mechanism is provided so that non-named case morbidity data, in electronic format, can be transmitted to CDC via the National Electronic Telecommunications System for Surveillance (NETSS).
Adoption of STD*MIS by state and local health departments is voluntary. If the software can be useful, and is implemented by a state or local health department, it becomes, in essence, a local application. The Division of STD Prevention provides source code for the system as well as basic support. Basic support primarily involves training of the staff who will be supporting the application locally and serving as technical back-up for these local support staff. More extensive support is the responsibility of the STD project area.
STD*MIS was developed using xBase++ and supports Foxpro 3.x and Advantage Database Server database formats.
A demo version of STD*MIS 5.0 is now available for download and review.
