CDC Issues Public Health Data Management RFI

healthcare-systemThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is soliciting information on commercial infrastructure that the agency can use to collate, analyze and share public health information.

CDC said Friday it needs a single electronic platform for managing data gathered from epidemiologic studies, outbreak surveillance, pathogen tests and environmental health research.

The technology should work to standardize metadata across CDC’s public health monitoring programs, as well as combine structured and unstructured content, according to the agency.

The agency also wants the system to have a secure and an intuitive user interface and allow agency personnel to link data with the Emergency Operations Center and Laboratory Response Network.

Interested vendors can submit their responses via email until Oct. 30.
