CDC works around the clock to get the right information into the right hands at the right time. To meet increasing demands for speed and accuracy, we must constantly improve how we track and report illness and other health conditions. CDC’s Surveillance Strategy is navigating change by improving the value of our data, beginning with how we interface with states.
