Basic Information

Overview

Before NEDSS, CDC developed and used the NETSS. NETSS was a computerized public health surveillance information system that provided CDC with weekly data regarding nationally notifiable diseases. While the NETSS file format had changed little since 1990, NEDSS was flexible enough to update standards with new technology as epidemiology evolved. This system is now inactive.
