CDC provides documents to assist with implementing HL7 message mapping guides and sending case notifications to NNDSS.
|PHIN Messaging Specification for Case Notification v3.1||This document has been updated to accommodate sending the Generic and disease-specific Message Mapping Guides (e.g., hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases, congenital syphilis, pertussis, and mumps) and should be used with all new MMGs beginning in 2019|
|Laboratory Template (5/11/2018)||This document includes the data elements for the “Laboratory Repeating Group” in the Message Mapping Guides.|
|Generic Data Elements that Define a Unique Case (7/7/2017)||Information for NNDSS reporting jurisdictions about which data elements in the Generic v2.0 MMG cannot change for a case because they are used to define a unique case in the CDC MVPS for HL7 case notifications|
|Methods for Conveying Unknown Values in Case Notification||Guidelines that address the methods for data transmission in HL7 messages when the information is collected in the surveillance system|
