Collaborative Software Initiative Addresses State Governments' Requirements for Meeting Infectious Disease Compliance

CSI and State of Utah team to deliver first open source infectious disease

management system to meet CDC mandate

PORTLAND, Ore., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Collaborative Software Initiative (CSI), the company that brings like-minded organizations together to work on collaborative software at a fraction of the cost, today announced the release of the first open source, web-based infectious disease reporting and management system.

The system will both protect citizens and meet the requirements for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NEDSS). NEDSS is the infrastructure cornerstone for the nation's Public Health Information Network (PHIN).

The disease reporting and management system, which is being piloted in Utah, will be adaptable in all 50 states and available under an open source license later this year. It is designed to support local health departments in the early detection and investigation of individual cases and local clusters of communicable disease, while simultaneously meeting the state and federal needs of outbreak control, disease surveillance and epidemiologic research.

According to the December 2007 report from Trust for America's Health, only eight states are currently fully prepared to protect the public from disease, disasters and bio-terrorism. Existing NEDSS solutions are either too expensive or outdated and don't meet the states' needs. CSI's open source infectious disease reporting and management system, developed with the collaborative software development model, is significantly less expensive and meets all local, state, and federal requirements.

The collaborative software development model, based on a unique combination of industry standards, open source business practices, and lean software development techniques was chosen in order to bring multiple stakeholders with a common need together.
