The NVSS Modernization Tool Kit brings together training materials, technical tools, and guidance documents to help jurisdictions and their technical partners working in the NVSS modernization space. The term “modernization” is defined broadly and covers the full spectrum of activities ranging from carrying out a business process analysis to identifying and addressing bottle necks, establishing or updating an EDRS and/or expanding its use, and working on FHIR based interoperability.

The NVSS Modernization Tool kit is organized by theme and includes resources for both technical and program audiences. Resources include tools developed by NCHS , their technical partners, and other organizations.  The links below will take you to various outside links/resources  that together comprise the NVSS Modernization Toolkit.
