Masking Patient Names 2 B. Yarnell In New Jersey, we have the same issue and, like Rosa in MA, we'll be interested in either working with NSSP or at least hearing how that work goes.  While we feel comfortable that the access to the information meets confidentiality criteria (no access outside of public health), it would be helpful to have it addressed since it's not imperative to the work of surveillance.  Thank you Brittany for raising the issue!

ESSENCE - Set data access to specific levels of aggregation 2 J. Johnson You could always set up a data user agreement separately with other jurisdictions if Maine has its own syndromic surveillance system independent of NSSP. Messages could be sent from the other jurisdiction and be ingested directly into Maine's system, say for Maine residents.
