Transport mechanisms for data exchange are a focus of national efforts to modernize and enhance health information system interoperability for public health purposes. Architectures and Transport Mechanisms for Health Information Interchange of Clinical EHR Data for Syndromic Surveillance is an ISDS report that assesses various interchange architectures and compares strengths and weaknesses of a range of transport mechanisms used by public health agencies.
Prepared for ISDS in 2012 by Dr. Noam Arzt (HLN Consulting, LLC), this report seeks to clarify electronic health information interchange requirements for public health syndromic surveillance by providing:
· An assessment of various health information interchange architectures for their ability to meet syndromic surveillance business requirements (See Appendix);
· A comparison of potential data transport mechanisms; and
· Recommendations for data transport to support Meaningful Use implementation
