This is another great step forward in allowing Delaware to be best prepared and able to instantaneously communicate and collaborate with our public health partners in an emergency situation.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 30, 2010
The Delaware Department of Health and Human Services and Collaborative Fusion, Inc. proudly announce that Delaware is the first state in the nation to attain the Center for Disease Control’s mandated Public Health Information Network (PHIN) Cascade Alerting Version 2 certification, a communication capability essential in alerting and notifying health officials and medical professionals in the event of an emergency. Using Collaborative Fusion, Inc.’s CORES™ Health Alert Network (HAN), Delaware successfully interfaced with the new PHIN Exchange and achieved certification of the Delaware Health Alert Network system in less than seven days.
With Cascade Alerting certification, Delaware has shown its continued commitment to PHIN standards and practices which improve the nation’s overall capacity to exchange electronic public health information across jurisdictional lines. Delaware also makes a major technology advance by enabling automated and instantaneous electronic exchange of alerts between notification systems, aligning the State with major CDC 2009 initiatives to improve the nation’s public health emergency capabilities. After completion of the Cascade Alerting Certification, Delaware’s Division of Public Health’s Associate Deputy Director for Health information and Science, Dr. Paul Silverman commented, “This is another great step forward in allowing Delaware to be best prepared and able to instantaneously communicate and collaborate with our public health partners in an emergency situation.”
