SRA International has won a $9 million contract to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Electronic Disease Surveillance System.
The surveillance system facilitates the electronic transfer of public health surveillance data to public health departments and to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System.
The system itself includes software applications developed and implemented by the CDC, systems developed and implemented by state and local health departments and electronic notification systems created by contractors and vendors, SRA said in a release.
Under the contract, the company will develop, deploy and support the system and will help develop best practices in implementing public health surveillance systems.
