With the increasing availability of electronic health outcome data, CDC and certain states are evaluating the application of statistical aberration detection algorithms to state and national notifiable
disease incidence data to aid the rapid identification of unusual disease incidence patterns (34).
"In due course, in the long term, it might be helpful to make it notifiable
," he said.
Of note, the loop for direct automatic reporting between UPMC and ACHD was not completed at the time of this evaluation and, thus, no notifiable
events were reported by the electronic system to the ACHD.
Standardized surveillance for campylobacteriosis and addition to the nationally notifiable
For 26 notifiable
diseases examined for 2007-2011, a total of 12,420,236 cases were recorded (Table).
Not all notifiable
diseases are reportable at the state level, and although disease reporting is mandated by legislation or regulation, state reporting to CDC is voluntary.
SRCA data are analyzed annually to create "not reportable" ("N") indicators for MMWR Tables I and II, to denote when a nationally notifiable
disease is not reportable in a specific reporting jurisdiction.

infectious diseases--United States, 2002-2008," in the row for Trichinellosis, the number of deaths for 2008 should read: "0."
