Syndromic Surveillance Reporting Facilities

For 2020-2021 documentation of hospital Promoting Interoperability (formerly Meaningful Use) status for the submission of syndromic surveillance, please contact dph.dpsq@illinois.gov or contact the program administrator at staceyhoferka.jensen@illinois.gov

A list will be provided on the status of hospital emergency department and inpatient visit data submissions to Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH)’s syndromic surveillance system, housed in the National Syndromic Surveillance Program. Those listed as in ‘production’ are sending HL7 formatted production data. If a facility is listed as ‘Testing’, the registration of intent confirmation will serve as your documentation until IDPH is receiving live production data. To confirm that a continuous submission is maintained to satisfy reporting requirements, this list must be requested annually. Sending data through Cook County's local ESSENCE or to any state other than Illinois, does not fulfill Meaningful Use after 2016.
