Onboarding

Introduction

Onboarding is a collaborative process in which we work with your facility, health department, vendor for electronic health records (EHR), or health information exchange (HIE) to transmit syndromic surveillance data from internal medical record systems to the NSSP BioSense Platform. We ensure adherence to the Public Health Information Network by following the PHIN Syndromic Surveillance Message Guide. The result? A live data feed to the BioSense Platform.

We have compiled resources to help you navigate the process. The Onboarding Guide to the BioSense Platform  will guide you step-by-step through planning and onboarding. Links to forms and templates are provided.

If you have questions or would like technical assistance, please contact the Service Deskexternal icon.
