Overall Updates

NNDSS

New Resource Page for Implementation Spreadsheets and Test Case Scenario Worksheets Now Available

  • CDC has launched a dedicated webpage for NMI implementation spreadsheets and test case scenario worksheets.
    • Implementation Spreadsheets: The implementation spreadsheets help to facilitate a gap analysis for the HL7 case notification message that a jurisdiction would like to implement. These templates merge information from the message mapping guides (MMGs), NMI HL7 Message Specification, and the PHIN Vocabulary Access and Distribution System (PHINVADS). Each implementation spreadsheet has an introduction tab with detailed guidance on how to use the spreadsheet.
    • Test Case Scenario Worksheets: When creating test messages associated with a test case scenario worksheet for a chosen HL7 case notification message, jurisdictions should indicate differences from the CDC example values in the worksheet.

MVPS Dashboard Enhancements Now Available to Users

  • CDC has recently implemented these new enhancements to the Message Validation, Processing, and Provisioning System (MVPS) Dashboard:
    • Ability to refresh detailed view results tables: The detail view tab of the MVPS Dashboard allows users to apply filter criteria on the message results they wish to view. MVPS processes messages in real-time as they are received by the PHIN Messaging System; therefore, the possibility exists for messages to be received as a user is viewing the detail view. The refresh button allows the results to be refreshed with current filters applied without having to conduct a full-page refresh that would remove any filters on the results.
    • Export to spreadsheet of results displayed in the detailed view: The detail view tab of the MVPS Dashboard allows users to apply filter criteria on the message results they wish to view. In many situations, the result set is quite large, possibly in the hundreds or thousands of records. The system now allows users to export these results to a spreadsheet, which provides the user the opportunity to perform analysis on these results outside of MVPS. This feature will support jurisdictions in data reconciliation.

Process for Jurisdictions Adding Conditions to Onboarded MMGs

  • Public health jurisdictions who have onboarded for an NNDSS HL7 MMG and would like to onboard additional conditions for that MMG should follow this process:
    • Jurisdiction sends email to the CDC Electronic Data Exchange email inbox at edx@cdc.gov with conditions to be onboarded.
    • CDC onboarding team updates a jurisdiction’s existing information to include the new conditions.
    • Jurisdiction transmits all existing cases of the new conditions for the current non-reconciled year(s).
    • CDC onboarding team sends an approval email to the jurisdiction.
    • Jurisdiction is onboarded and starts routine transmission.

NMI eSHARE Updates

  • The October eSHARE on 10/16/18 provided a refresher on implementing the STD and congenital syphilis HL7 case notification messages, a walkthrough of the MVPS Dashboard enhancements, and the latest updates to the NMI implementation spreadsheet.
  • The November eSHARE on 11/27/18 at 3:00 PM ET will provide helpful hints for maintaining and improving NNDSS transmissions and share changes to the NNDSS data tables that are planned for 2019.
  • Access past eSHARE presentations and details about future events at the NMI eSHARE website at https://www.cdc.gov/nmi/eshare.html.

Public Health Rhapsody User Group Reminder

  • The Public Health Rhapsody User Group meets the third Thursday of each month at 1:00 PM ET. The next call is scheduled for November 15, 2018.
  • Users are required to register for the meetings each month. For additional information, contact host Michelle Barber, Oregon Health Authority, at (971) 673-1111 or via email at  barber@state.or.us.

ELC HIS Recipients Onboarding Reminder

  • Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity Health Information Systems (ELC HIS) Cooperative Agreement recipients must send production data for at least five more MMGs by 8/1/19.
  • Please allow several weeks for onboarding.
  • Onboard for these MMGs now:
    • arboviral 1.3
    • generic v2
    • hepatitis
    • STD
    • congenital syphilis.
  • Onboard for these soon:
    • mumps
    • pertussis
    • varicella.

SAMS Access Reminder

  • The NMI team encourages all jurisdictions to complete the Secure Access Management Services (SAMS) proofing process and confirm their access with the MVPS support team.
  • More information about SAMS access and training may be found on the NMI website at https://www.cdc.gov/nmi/ta-sams.html.
