This project served as a proof-of-concept for implementing an Open Source, web-based data quality assurance (QA) tool to qualify new sites for reporting syndromic surveillance data electronically to public health via HL7 v2 messages, and for monitoring the ongoing quality of data submissions over time. This was accomplished by leveraging existing validation software from NIST and the user interface component from NYC Citywide Immunization Registry (CIR).
