Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has selected 3M Health Information Systems to provide data mapping and terminology consulting services in support of the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) BioSense public health initiative.

SAIC is the prime contractor to the CDC on BioSense implementation.

According to St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M, it will standardize and integrate patient data being sent to CDC and BioSense from major healthcare providers, pharmacies, and clinical laboratories nationwide.

The CDC's BioSense program seeks to provide early detection of a possible bio-terrorism threat or naturally occurring disease outbreak, and supports public health officials and scientists in situational awareness and effective public-health response.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
