NEDSS is managed by the CDC's Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services.
NEDSS facilitates the electronic transfer of public health surveillance data to public health departments and to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS). NEDSS is a system of interoperable subsystems, components and systems modules.
