Implementing All Other Conditions

Implementation - All Other Conditions

There are four phases that a jurisdiction moves through in the process to implement a finalized NNDSS HL7 case notification message:

  1. Pre-onboarding: Includes preparing internal resources, accessing SAMS and MVPS, requesting technical assistance if needed, mapping to the HL7 message, validating test messages, and testing transport.
  2. Onboarding: Includes confirming pre-onboarding work, participating in kickoff call, and correcting any test message issues.
  3. Cutover to Production: Includes conducting system check and sending year-to-date transmissions.
  4. Production: Includes turning off any legacy feeds and sending updates and new messages to MVPS.
