PHIN-MS deployment acceptability survey for the data transfer of syndromic data between hospitals and public health


PHIN-MS can send and receive data securely and automatically. It is used by many hospitals in the state(s) to send data to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) for both our National Electronic Disease Surveillance System and our South Carolina Early Aberration Alerting Network syndromic surveillance system.


The objective of this presentation is to review and evaluate the use of Public Health Information Network (PHIN) Messaging Service (PHIN-MS)2 for the data transfer of the syndromic data between hospitals and public health. Included is an overview of the methodology used for PHIN-MS, and a review of the usage, adoption, benefits, and challenges within the hospitals and public health agencies in South Carolina. A formal survey is planned with results discussed during the presentation of this manuscript.
