The Public Health Information Network (PHIN) is CDC’s vision for advancing fully capable and interoperable information systems in the many organizations that participate in public health. Please see the National Center for Public Health Informatics (NCPHI) Public Health Information Network (PHIN) homepage for more information.
The National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NEDSS), a major component within the framework of PHIN, supports routine surveillance activities associated with the rapid reporting of disease trends to control outbreaks. The NEDSS platform allows states to enter, update and electronically transmit demographic and notifiable disease data. For questions and current information on NEDSS contact Nedss@cdc.gov.
