The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other federal agencies in the US have urged state health departments to improve their disease surveillance systems for easy access to information critical in public healthcare emergencies.

A number of states have already invested in technology to help improve nation-wide early detection and rapid response to infectious diseases outbreaks.

More than 45 state health departments in the US have adopted a new technology by Orion Health for processing the health data of thousands of patients.

Its proprietary software Rhapsody automatically stores data into the CDC’s nationwide disease surveillance systems, creates reports, and provides critical information to health officers at the local, regional and national levels.
