Environmental Scan of the US States' and Other Countries' Notifiable Disease Provisional Data Online Display: Results and Recommendations

Anna Grigoryan, Ruth Ann Jajosky


The purpose of this project was to identify ideas and potential options for an enhanced dissemination of provisional data for the US National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS). We conducted a search of all US State Health Department websites looking for on-line data display tables and tools for either "reportable" or "notifiable" diseases. As of May 1, 2013 our review showed that only 22 States (44%) presented provisional data in either static report or on-line interactive data display formats. There may be room for improvement in the style and content of the dissemination of US nationally notifiable disease provisional data using interactive tools or dashboard design.
